  • Recently on a major hospital in Melbourne A G Coombs were faced with a task to supply and install two prefabricated modules onto the existing facade of the building. This task was required to be carried out quickly, and most importantly, safely, as one of the modules was to be installed adjacent to the existing hospital. This required additional. I was impressed with the meticulous way that the task was approached at all times, totally focused on the job at hand, and enjoyable to work with. Thank you Ben and your team!

  • Custom rigging and relocations offered professional and knowledgeable services from the planning stages through to the completion of the project. Their skills, experience and meticulous attention to detail are of a superior calibre. Custom rigging and relocations successfully relocated one of our manufacturing plants and consolidated it into an existing plant. This was carried out with great precision and speed; all whilst production continued on both sites. Exceptional efforts from all the guys at Custom rigging and relocations.

  • We required a tailored means of cranage/rigging with very little capacity to implement ordinary solutions. Custom Rigging & Relocations were not only able to offer a bespoke and cost effective solution, but also a professional, experienced and efficient service - their attention to detail & safety was exceptional. They provide the highest quality in professionalism from design & engineering right through to completion. They will also facilitate all the necessary certifications, permits, fees and approvals. I would highly recommend using Custom Rigging & Relocations for all your crane and rigging services.
