Crane & Hoist Quotes Made Simple

When your facility needs crane and hoist equipment, the process can seem overwhelming. What exactly do you need? How much will it cost and how do you get a quote? And once you figure out what you need, how do you find a vendor that can follow through with the expertise, skill, equipment, and customer service to get everything up and running smoothly?

We’re here to help. At Brehob, we’re proud to offer high quality products from the industry’s best manufacturers, including Columbus McKinnon, Harrington, Gorbel, and Coffing (view our line card here)—and we can also completely design, fabricate, and install customized structural cranes and lifting fixtures to fit your exact requirements right here in our Indianapolis, IN shop. If you need something picked up a certain way for your production, give us a call and we can build a custom solution to meet your needs. (See an example of our custom work with a 100ft bridge crane here).

Whether you need to lift 30 tons or 50 tons, we have over 60 years of experience and a proven track record of success in meeting the needs of clients in a variety of industries. But one thing we’ve learned over the years is the importance of the quoting process: the more information we have upfront, the better we can estimate your costs—and the faster we can get you going.

Here’s the basic information we need from you to create a quote. And if you don’t have the answers—don’t worry. Give us a call and we’ll help you figure it out.
