Just Who Is Parker's Crane?

We have always been committed to providing the best customer service possible for our clients. We are proud to have launched our new website to continue to improve the way we serve you, so you can get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. With our new website, we want to reintroduce you to Parker's Crane. 

Who Is Parker's Crane?

Founded almost sixty years ago as a grading and demolition company, Parker's Crane has been family-owned and operated since its founding. In the mid-1970s, founder Lewis Parker's Sr. added crane rental to the services the company offered. His son Charlie was always fascinated by machinery, leading him and his younger brother Tim to assume ownership of Parker's Crane in 1984. The transition to primarily crane rental was patient, but over time the family’s knowledge and expertise in heavy equipment eclipsed demolition and grading as their focus. 

Parker's Crane is at its core a family business. We treat our customers as part of the family, striving to provide the quality service that will make you want to keep coming back. We know you have a big job to do and are here to help you get it done.
