About Us

Cobra Lifting Services Ltd is the sister company of Cobra Steel Services Ltd. With an increasing use of spider cranes and specialist lifting equipment brought in to the specialist steelwork installations carried out by Cobra steel, Cobra Lifting was started to share some of the expertise into different trades and scenarios. All of the Cobra companies are family-based businesses, with Cobra Lifting being a joint venture between Clint and his son Ryan.

Clint has been involved with erecting steelwork and cranes for over 30 years and has been an Appointed Person for 15 years. Ryan, who is a Crane Supervisor, Slinger/Signaller and Spider Crane operator himself, has also been in the family business and working with cranes for the past 6 years, working with many different types of lifting equipment and gaining an amazing amount of experience in a relatively short amount of time.

We were the first company in the UK to own a Maeda MC285-3, which we bought in May 2019, and in February 2020 we bought a second one.


Cobra Lifting is a member of the CPA (Construction Plant Hire Association) and all of our operatives are CPCS, CSCS or NPORS trained and accredited.
