Dedicated to meeting your heavy lift and transport challenges head on.

Barnhart was founded in 1969 in Memphis, Tennessee, as a small, family-owned business. While we are still a family-run company, Barnhart has grown to be one of the largest heavy lift and heavy transport organizations in North America with more than 60 locations and a reputation for solving problems. Barnhart provides world-class service through a local presence. Operated crane rental, rigging services, outage planning, specialized solutions for component replacement, industrial storage and national project cargo logistics all combine to ensure Barnhart's customers receive the lowest total project cost. Barnhart also boasts one of the largest engineering teams in the industry — including a full R&D department — driving innovation across all services.
