Crane Rental Near Chicago




Five decades of experience spanning an array of industries, seeing the planning phase through final execution.


Chicagoland is home to one of the largest mechanical contractor’s markets in the United States. But the city’s diverse architecture often makes it difficult to install or remove rooftop HVAC units and other mechanical equipment.

HVAC Crane Service

La Grange Crane specializes in HVAC crane services to get your gear where it needs to go. We tailor the crane size and style to your specific needs. Every job has a different reach and load requirement. And our diverse fleet of cranes for rent allows us to provide you with the perfect crane for HVAC lifting of any kind.
We know how important the bottom line is for every business. So we always recommend cranes to install HVAC equipment that are both cost-effective and, above all else, safe.

Our meticulously cared for cranes and highly trained crane operators are ready to tackle even the most challenging jobs. And if we think you can install your HVAC unit without a crane, we’ll let you know. But commercial air conditioners often tip the scales at hundreds, even thousands of pounds. And the cost of a crane rental pales in comparison to the price of a workplace accident.
