Andy worked for an electrical company in Ipswich, setting up the warehouse, dispatch, websites and initial sales avenue when the company started selling solar panels and full kits in 2012. He was asked to find a solar panel lifting bag to sell and struggled to find something with enough margin to offer at a reasonable price.
On arrival of the first bag he was surprised at the high cost, for something similar to what he had made for another project a few years back. The solar panel lifting bags material was inferior and webbing was poorly stitched. The clasps didn't seem very robust and with a single side rope it would sway about in any wind.
Andy made contact with the manufacturer he had an existing relationship with and the solar panel lifting bags you see on this website have been selling all over the UK as a result. We have even sent one to New York, within 6 working days!
When your order comes in, the bags are then hand made locally and inspected and dispatched by Andy's wife. Every bag is checked and packed with care before sending. Any bags that are out of stock can be pre-purchased for delivery within 6 days. Any of our lifting bags that we do have in stock are clearly shown as such with next working day delivery.
The image on the left is the very first bag being tested on-site back in the Spring of 2011.
This bag in the image shown is the padded version.
We do also offer a non-padded bag, also from stock.
