“I have used the Frog Squad for various jobs, from cabinet removal to installation of phosco poles. I’ve always found the office very efficient and the engineers on site cannot do enough to help. They always overcome any issues and they are good to work with.”
“We started using the Frog Squad a couple of years ago and we haven’t got a bad word to say about them. They’re efficient, flexible and always willing to help us out no matter what the circumstances!
And that’s not just with the cranes, we had a tower that had been dropped off at the bottom of a forestry commission track about a mile from site with no way of getting it up there. I called the Frog Squad and they sent their Iveco 4x4 Hiab across and we loaded the structure onto it and got it up to the site in a few trips.
The other thing that makes them stand out from the rest is their operators. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they don’t mind mucking in and helping the lads assemble the structures on the ground before craning them into position.”
“The Frog Squad were able to move our instruments using specialised equipment that no other company could offer. They accommodated our every requirement, and we were impressed with their professional and efficient service. We look forward to working with them again.”
“WHP had to meet urgent timescales at the Twickenham Stadium, to increase data capacity for spectators in time for the Six Nations Tournament in February 2017. With a demanding environment (The Venue), and deadlines difficult to achieve, WHP’s 3 week program involved many parties. The Frog Squad were chosen for multiple logistic and lift and shift elements to get the kit where it needed to be over a two day venue restricted window in a difficult environment. As usual, The Frog Squad did not disappoint and exceeded all expectations.
The professional approach from on-site and office personnel ensured a smooth operation, executed within time, budget and safety constraints. The Frog Squad went out of their way to deliver, and ensure the program was kept on schedule, resulting in the site being completed ahead of schedule and ready for the Six Nations Tournament where spectators enjoyed a smooth data experience. The Frog Squad are WHP’s company of choice for the areas of expertise they specialise in. They come with my highest recommendation”
“The Frog Squad have been instrumental in helping Daly International achieve all our targets for the Smart Metering programme over the last 3 years. This was demonstrated on a site in Manchester city centre that required numerous road closures and the use of a 250 tonne crane and was the number one coverage site for our client.
Their reliability and resourcefulness both leading up to the site build and during ensured that what was potentially a tricky site was completed as per the schedule and without any incident.
I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
In summer 2018, Shires Oak Buildings Ltd erected a large oak framed orangery with help from lifting solutions specialists The Frog Squad. The site had restricted access so the team enlisted the help of their tracked Bӧcker crane capable of lifting up to 36 metres.
Rob Baldwin from Shires Oak Buildings Ltd said “At 2.2 metres wide, the aluminium crawler crane lends itself to these types of jobs as it’s small, agile and can be manoeuvred into place easily.”
“The main advantage of using the aluminium crane is that it gives us the flexibility to build trusses up from the floor to lift into place, or use the rigs to lift into place on site.”
Rob explained that if they had to hire a twenty-tonne machine it would’ve added a significant cost to the build.
“Because the aluminium crane is lightweight and has a low ground bearing pressure it minimises any chance of damage to the customer’s driveway,” he said.
“Overall, The Frog Squad staff were really helpful and easy to work with and I’d highly recommend using the aluminium crawler crane for this type of construction,” added Rob.
