Local Crane Company Needed a Rescue Mission of Their Own

Last week, our heavy truck towing service got double duty working with a local crane company. Earlier in the week, we had worked alongside the crane company. We directed the operation and used a heavy wrecker alongside their crane to move a concrete mixer. Later that date, the same crane company had a fire on a 80-ton crane. Ain’t that the way the world works sometimes. Crazy!The crane had been traveling from Selma, TX to their HQ in the San Antonio area and had caught fire. That’s when they gave us a call and we helped move them to move it. Turn out its 4 tires and rims needed to be replaced. These guys did a super job and were a pleasure to help. Now that’s teamwork.
