Foster Cranes & Equipment Ltd, crane testing & inspection

At Foster Cranes we make sure that all of our engineers have years of valuable experience, with full factory training. This allows us to carry out quality testing and inspection at all times – one reason why we are the UK’s largest supplier of quality used cranes.

Our skilled team of engineers are dedicated to meticulously inspecting all used cranes that are delivered to us, so that we can thoroughly repair and refurbish if necessary. They can then be sent on for sale from our base in Worcestershire. This approach ensures that every crane is as close to its original state as possible, whether it’s an all-terrain, rough-terrain, city, truck or industrial crane.


Foster Crane & Equipment are also able to offer testing and inspection services not only for the machines we supply, but to any outside company that requires any of the following:
1. Mobile Crane Repairs, Testing and Certification
2. On site Winch Testing and Certification
3. On site safe load indicator repairs and calibration checks
4. Technically competent, qualified and experienced engineers
5. 6 monthly statutory inspection of loose gear 6.Test and certification of barge and marine cranes
7. On site testing and certification of all types of tracked, tyre mounted excavators and forklift trucks

Many construction companies who deal with used crane suppliers get sold faulty products, and can’t rely on the credibility of the supplier. This is a surprisingly common problem that can severely impact production line timescales at your construction site. This is why the testing stage is so important to us here at Foster Cranes.

Here are the reasons to choose us for inspected and tested used cranes:
1. We are an established company, not a rip-off merchant or individual working from home
2. We have had years of unrivalled experience when it comes to providing quality repaired cranes
3. All stock is checked individually to consistently high standards. The cranes won’t go on sale until this is done, so you aren’t left with costly repairs only a few weeks down the line
4. You won’t have to spend money on maintenance costs. Our second hand cranes are guaranteed to last
5. All of our testing & certification is carried out in accordance with LOLER regulations
