What is a Crane Truck?

The truck mounted crane is a vehicle that has a hydraulically operated crane attached to the top of it. It can fully operate as a crane and can be easily moved from one location to another. This vehicle offers flexibility in moving cargo and handling a truck load efficiently.

The Difference Between the Horizontal Lift System and the Crane Truck

  • Crane Truck: The crane truck is able to move a storage container for an onsite move. When it comes to more of a long distance move, the crane truck is more limited. While there are crane trucks that are able to move a 20’ container across town, crane trucks are unable to move items a long distance. This limits the capabilities and customer base for any company using the crane truck.
  • The Horizontal Lift System: The Horizontal Lift system is ideal for both onsite, across town and long distance moves. The Horizontal Lift system is also able to adapt to different kinds of containers, making it extremely adaptable for whatever the need may be. Additionally, purchasing a Horizontal Lift system can be 4 to 5 times less expensive than purchasing a crane truck.
