Please let us know your preferred craning, convoy and mast stepping (if required) dates as soon as possible so that we can do our best to accommodate your request.

 

Masts

Please check your mast, if it is over 10 metres above the water line it will not go under the M5 Bridge.

Due to time constraints we cannot unstep masts on a Saturday so please book a date with this office before your convoy to the Basin.
