Crane Charity Abseiling Events

We're the only company in the UK offering a bespoke abseil crane service. We've teamed up with a specialist crane company to provide a unique charity abseil experience. All you need to do is find a suitable flat area we can park a 40-60 tonne crane and we'll do the rest.

Sponsored crane charity abseils are the perfect way to raise money for you charity and there's no requirement to spend hours trying to find a suitable building. All you need is a large area and the land owners permission.

How Many Ropes Do I Need?

We can run up to 2 ropes per crane abseil. We aim to get as many people abseiling as possible, but ultimately it depends on the speed of each individual and the crane size you opt for (40-60T). As a rough guide for this abseil we estimate approximately 6-8 person per rope, per hour (which allows 8-10min per person).


Please contact us for prices. Our prices include crane hire and operators, instructors, all abseiling equipment, insurance, site visits, risk assessments and method statements.
