Rest Assured, We’re Fully Insured

A#1 Crane Company is a fully insured crane and rigging company. All of our personnel and vehicles are completely insured while on your project. We carry a $2,000,000 general liability policy and can increase that coverage to $10,000,000 when the project requires it. Let us know your needs!

Founded in 1996 by Patrick J. Carr, A#1 Crane Company began in earnest with small lift projects such as tree removal, boat mast rigging, seasonal boat storage and highway salvage work. As the company’s reputation for safety, dependability and excellence continued to evolve, these small jobs joined new and more challenging opportunities in the form of large, multi-state commercial projects. Today, the equipment and operators of A#1 Crane can regularly be found on the biggest work projects throughout New England.

A#1 Crane remains privately owned and operated and has proved viable in providing financial growth and employment opportunities even during these difficult economic times.  A#1 Crane’s approach to business not only benefits our highly-trained equipment operators, safety personnel, and support staff, but equally applies to the way we treat our valued customers― like family! As a small, but rapidly growing business, we maintain close employee and productive customer relationships at all levels… it makes us an attractive company to work for, and work with.
