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 intricate steelwork installations carried out by Cobra Steel, Cobra Lifting was started to share some of the expertise into different trades and applications.

All of the Cobra companies are family-based businesses 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 over15 years. Ryan, who is also an Appointed Person, is a Crane Supervisor, Slinger/Signaller and Spider Crane operator himself, and is extremely experienced in many lifting scenarios.

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

Our spider cranes are for hire all over the country, but based in Essex we mainly cover London and the South East.

If we can be of help, please feel free to get in touch!


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.
