A big well done to our team who last night successfully completed the removal of a redundant timber footbridge in the center of Wadebridge.

I work in procurement for a local construction firm and we have grown reliant on Sparrow Crane Hire’s friendly team. We have used them for a number of jobs needing mobile cranes and mini cranes and we're always impressed by their speed! I hope this review helps! Thanks. L
