About Us

Frank started his career as a crane operator in 1994. Working for his father-in-law at 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 him 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, Frank purchased a brand new 22 ton boom truck crane and hired his daughter, Dallas, to run it. This crane is smaller and can fit in tight spots where most cranes cannot. Now we're able to accommodate more for our customers.

Scheduling Our Services

You can call, text, or email Kelli to set up your next lift. We will need the measurements and weight of the load, expected service time needed, and address of the job to determine which crane will be best for your 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 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.

Customers are responsible for inspecting ground conditions prior to 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. Safety is our TOP priority. 

You can always expect an experienced, certified operator and a well maintained crane. Kelli or Frank can estimate a quote for you when scheduling. Please arrange for payment on the job. A check is preferred. We also accept all major credit cards, a convenience fee may be applied. 

Please let us know if you have any questions we can answer. You can call, text, or email us anytime.

We appreciate your business and thank you for trusting us with your next lift!
