Our Services – Lifting Project Management

Shepherd Offshore is one of the leading crane hire and material solutions companies in the UK. Our service offering combines the experience and skill of our highly-trained operatives with a versatile and comprehensive array of cranes, plant and equipment.

Our management teams understand the individuality of each project we work on and are available for site visits and to advise you on the best-fit solutions for both routine and specialist heavy lifts. We have unrivalled product know-how and experience which allows us to provide industry-leading project management, one-off crane hire or contract solutions on any scale.

We believe we are one of the leading crane hire & material handling solutions companies in the UK, due to the excellence of our staff; in particular our Project Management & Technical team. Our management system allows us to seamlessly assess safety, health, environment and quality into the daily processes that we work with. Operating an ISO certificated Quality Management System and using the ISO standard as a tool for driving continual improvement, we aim to provide the best service 24-hours a day, 365 days a year (subject to notice and agreement).

Material handling solutions

Our years of experience means we’re well rehearsed in both basic and complex material handling solutions, both within and outside our deep-water facilities.

With our extensive skills and knowledge, we oversee our management system, assessing safety, health, environment and quality controls alongside daily processes.

Risk management

Our project management and technical teams are each equipped with CAD, lifting software, and supportive expertise, which enables us to plan and manage risk through a robust and practically designed system.

We asses all variables to allow for the most efficient and stress-free completion of your lift.
