Over the years PDQ Lifting have been asked to supply lifting equipment for many different uses, some of which you would have never have thought of, from the prosaic – moving safes/ garden sheds/ shipping containers, to more unusual items, such as:
- A large red telephone box (as designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott) in a sixth form centre that had to be laid over to get into a common room, and then be stood upright again afterwards.
- A cannon captured at the battle of Balaclava- to be moved from the top of a tower to a basement via a winding staircase.
- A statue of an Egyptian God (Anubis I think – had a head like a dog!) from circa 2000 BC, to be stood on a plinth in a museum.
And some safety lines used to stop people falling into the river Mersey during filming of a production staring Samuel L Jackson and Robert Carlyle.
