Concord Lifting Wandsworth – London SW17
The flagship branch of Concord Lifting Equipment and where it all began…
Armed with just a pile of yellow pages, a phone and plenty of coffee, the former MD Peter Carr with his wealth of knowledge and expertise in lifting equipment established the foundations of London’s leading independent lifting equipment hire company. The Wandsworth branch is the head office of Concord Lifting Equipment and is where our Finance and HR department operates from.

Knowledge & Stock
The key factors – Not only do we have the wide knowledge & expertise to provide advice on what equipment is required, we have the wide product range to match, popular items include:

Although Wandsworth is a lovely location to live with a wide selection of bars, leafy parks and within a couple of miles of Wimbledon Tennis Club, it is also a good place to site a branch! Handily placed for deliveries to the City & West End, we also serve the M25 and Home Counties area – or equipment is available for collection.
Only minutes from Nine Elms and Battersea power station, we are in a prime location to service the exciting construction projects currently going on in South West London
Being the only specialist lifting equipment hire/rental service within a 30 minute radius, we are set up for ‘cash account customers’ meaning people who don’t have an account are able to hire equipment at the same rates as established account customers-the only difference is cash account customers pay a security deposit by credit card prior to delivery/collection which is refunded upon the safe return of the equipment.
The head office was recently refurbished to increase its floor space by 40% and update the warehouse and offices. The increased space has allowed us to increase stock holding by more than 40% as well as increase the number of staff both in the office and in the workshop
