In 1946 Belger Cartage Service purchased its first crane – a 20-ton capacity Lorain. This marked the entry of Belger into the crane service business. Combined with a solid reputation in trucking and specialized hauling since 1919, Belger soon became a respected player in the industry.
For many years Belger’s crane fleet has been a common sight on construction, utility, refinery, oilfield, bridge and machinery installations throughout the Midwest. Our cranes, with hoisting capacities ranging from 22 tons to 600 tons are available to handle either simple or complex tasks.
Available by the hour, day, week, month, long term manned crane rental or by the job, Belger crane services address the specialized needs of a variety of customers. Experienced personnel, from crane usage estimators averaging more than 20 years of experience, to operators and oilers with an average of over 14 years, provide assurance of a safe and cost-efficient crane service job. The right combination of people and equipment has built the reputation of Belger into the most respected crane service company in Middle America.
Belger can provide any level of service required by our customers. We can provide cranes with a crane crew only or with the additional manpower needed for rigging and flagging. By combining crane services with our specialized heavy hauling, machinery installation and machinery warehousing, Belger is able to offer turnkey service in a “one-stop-shopping” package. In addition, our locations are strategically located to allow for movement of equipment as necessary from point to point.
