Dallas Berlin

NCCCO Operator

4 years of experience

Frank started his career as a crane operator in 1994. Working for his father-in-law's company, JJ Crane Service, is where he learned to operate a wide variety of mobile cranes. Frank started his own business in 2005. Being the only operator for many years gave Frank the opportunity to be involved and focused on each job and develop great relationships with his customers which he has maintained throughout the years. With booming business, pun intended, Frank bought a brand new 22 ton boom truck crane and hired his daughter Dallas, an NCCCO operator, to run it. This crane is smaller and can fit in tight areas where most cranes cannot. Now we're able to accommodate more for our customers. You can call Frank, Dallas, or Kelli today if you have any questions about the services we provide, need a quote, or help in deciding which crane will be best for your job.

Scheduling our services

You can call, text, or email our scheduling coordinator, Kelli, to set up your next crane service! It's best to schedule your job a few days out to ensure your desired time will be available. We will do our best to fit you in ASAP if you do need our services last minute. When scheduling we will need to know the measurements and weight of the lift.

Our cranes are equipped with straps and shackles. If you need anything additional, for example: spreader bar, man-basket, trash box, or any extra rigging be sure to request it when scheduling your job. An extra fee for these items may apply. Our customers are responsible for all items below the crane hook which includes rigging up the load and signaling the operator. According to OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1428 & OSHA 1926.1401 all rigger and signal persons shall be certified prior to start of any and all operations. If you need a rigger or signal person for the job, please arrange for one when scheduling. An extra fee for rigger/signal person will apply. 

Customers are responsible for inspecting ground conditions prior of the job to ensure there is firm level ground and a safe area for the crane to set up. Our operators must be made aware of any underground utilities or areas on the job site that would hinder the crane from making a safe lift. Also lookout for power lines near the area of the crane or trees preventing the crane from getting into a driveway or area needed to set up. Things like this could prevent us from doing the job completely. If you have any questions please don't to hesitate to ask. Safety is our TOP priority.
Please arrange for payment at the time of the job. A check or cash is preferred, we also accept all major credit cards. Any questions you have we will be happy to answer. You can call, text, or email us anytime to schedule. We hope you choose us for your next lift.
