Frank Berlin

Owner + Certified Operator

26 years of experience

In 1994 Frank started his career as a crane operator. Working for his father-in-law's company, JJ Crane Service, is where he learned to run a wide variety of mobile cranes. Frank started his own business in 2005. He bought his first crane, a 35 ton Terex. Being the only operator gave Frank the opportunity to be very involved and focused on each job and develop great relationships with his customers he has maintained over the years. With booming business, pun intended, Frank bought a brand new 22 ton Manitex 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. Call Frank today if you have any questions about the services we provide. Frank can let you know which crane would be best for your job and give you a quote.

Dallas Berlin

Certified Operator

Dallas has been around cranes her whole life, either in the office with her mom or going to jobs with her dad and grandpa. After high school she officially began working in the office full time for her grandfathers company, JJ Crane Service. After taking on the responsibility of answering phone calls, scheduling jobs, and other admin roles she quickly decided she would rather run a crane herself. Dallas got her certification and started working full time as a crane operator here at Frank Berlin Crane in 2017. You can catch her now operating our 22 ton Manitex, a pink one of course!


Ready to schedule? Kelli, our scheduling coordinator, is ready to set it up. It is usually best to book your job a few days out to ensure your desired time will be available. Although if you need our services last minute, we will do our best to fit you in! We will need to know the measurements and weight of the lift. Please inspect ground conditions prior to ensure there is a safe area for the crane to set up. Our cranes come 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 when scheduling the job. An extra fee for these items may apply. You are responsible for rigging up the load and signaling the operator. If you need a rigger or signal person for the job, please arrange for one when scheduling. An extra fee will apply. Every job is COD, please have check or credit card at the time of the job. Any questions you have we will be happy to answer. Call, text, or email us anytime. We hope you choose us for your next lift.
