About Us

Read about our story and discover why LIFT Holdings are leaders in design-led logistics.


LIFT Holdings vision is to be recognised as the pioneers behind intelligent commodity movement and we are so confident that we can simplify the most complex problems, we guarantee our work.

We’re building a reputation for making the impossible possible and for breaking down the complex into guaranteed, smart, cost-effective and risk reducing solutions for our clients. The reason we stand out from the crowd is because we don’t just accept what’s already out there. Instead, we find the solution that’s right – even if that means we have to create or invent it.

A key part of our vision is our commitment to making a detailed discovery of each client’s movement challenges. Using predictive methodology and collaboration with clients and partners, we assemble the right project team and resources to execute the end to end solution. We don’t just move transactionally, we continuously evaluate as we implement on the ground, task by task, day by day, effecting change immediately from the ground up.

We liken ourselves to the movement industry’s innovative event managers; moving items of scale, setting new benchmarks and working seamlessly with our clients to get the job done in time, within budget, and without problems.

LIFT – Redefining Movement, Guaranteed



To take a holistic approach to solving our clients’ problems by driving cost and time out of all movement models and focusing on the customer and their needs to demonstrate service excellence.

To demonstrate our commitment to Health, Safety, the Environment and Quality through our culture and behaviours.

To utilise LEAN thinking to minimise waste and maximise efficiencies.

To recognise that our people are the driving force of our success, and that our selection, induction and personal development of our people will be critical to our success.

To drive innovation and implement cutting edge systems and technology. To maintain a culture of continuous improvement.



LIFT Holdings offers innovative and intelligent solutions for movement.

With our service-driven culture, LIFT is committed to continually improving our processes and product offering by investing in technology, equipment and people.

The reason we stand out from the crowd is because we don’t just accept what’s already out there. Instead we find the solution that’s right – even if that means we have to create or invent it.


The movement market is changing and LIFT Holdings is leading the charge in the new field of design-led logistics. Our team has the depth of industry knowledge to recognise that just because it’s always been done that way, doesn’t mean it’s the only way.

Instead, we offer a design-led logistics approach that provides you with a different take on what can be done to save time, risk, cost and stress. We listen closely to discover what you need and your desired outcome. Then we design an innovative way to deliver it. More than that, we make the process easy by managing the whole project for you. It’s our goal to be your first point of call for anything to do with movement.


  • We’re pioneers in design-led logistics – by designing the outcome you want and then building the process
    to suit, we add value to every project.
  • We’re all about making things work for you – if there’s a glitch, we have the skills and the experience to find
    a fix.
  • We zig when others zag – our emphasis on thinking differently means you get a range of options so you are
    free to choose the ideal solution, not just a “one size fits all”.
  • We make life easy – with an effective technical process and a focus on de-risking jobs, we remove the stress from your schedule.
  • We’re your event managers – we’re on site to manage every aspect of your move, so everything runs smoothly.
  • We want you as a new recruit – if trust, good relationships, collaboration and innovation matter to you as much as they do to us.
