Purple Crane: The Premier Crane Rental Company, Serving Newport Beach, California Since 1983

When you require crane rental and operator services in Newport Beach, call Purple Crane. We offer professional crane services at great rates, 24 hours a day. We have been performing heavy-duty and light-duty lifts since 1983, and have a highly trained crew of CCO-certified crane operators, each with 9 to 40 years of experience. Our lift equipment includes Dynalift and Garland Light-Duty Boom Trucks; Manitowoc 22101 and Terex R35100 Hydraulic Boom Trucks; Grove 422 and Link-Belt Hydraulic Mobile Cranes; and an assortment of trucks with trailers, vans, and man baskets (capable of accommodating one or two service workers).

At Purple Crane, we have completed over 75,000 lifts, from relatively small loads like barbecue islands and spas, to incredibly heavy loads like 40,000-pound generators. Our expertise has allowed us to successfully move a variety of objects, including:

  • Spas
  • Shipping Containers
  • Air Conditioners
  • Street Lamps
  • Water Tanks
  • Utility Vaults
  • Septic Tanks
  • Building Materials
  • Large Machinery
  • Printing Presses
  • Palms, Pines & Other Trees
  • Boulders
  • Gazebos
  • And More!

The capacity of our lift equipment ranges from 3 tons to 75 tons, and our largest crane extends to 163 feet. These are all routinely inspected and serviced by experts to ensure that these cranes are ready to safely lift and/or move any item. Crane rental and operator services are available to our Newport Beach customers for as little as two hours or as long as two months. Every lift is completed by one of our crane experts who will select and operate the right crane for your job.

Upon calling us we will ask you a series of questions in order to determine which crane will successfully complete your lift for the least amount of money. We will want to know about the terrain, the ground, the load weight, how far you want the load moved, rigging equipment needed, etc. Once you provide us with a complete picture of the job, we can reliably choose the best crane to meet your needs. We will also handle any permit requests, obtain certificates of insurance, and comply with all OSHA regulations.

At the appointed time, our crane driver will safely maneuver onto your Newport Beach worksite and balance the crane or boom truck at the spot that offers the greatest stability and best access to the items that need to be listed. Any assembly will be completely quickly, so that your rigger can immediately get to work. With our thorough calculations and considerations at the time you book your crane rental, you won't have to worry that your crane will not be able to handle your job. Having the equipment you need at the time you need it, with as little downtime as possible, saves you and your clients time and money.

As a member of SC&RA (Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association), we are always up-to-date on the crane industry's changing regulations and best practices.
