The Barnhart Advantage

Deal with the Owner

With Barnhart, there's no "middle man" between you and the equipment owner. We own all of our transport equipment, which means fewer layers of bureaucracy and management, more efficient processes, direct communication and more intimate knowledge of the equipment – all of which can result in lower overall costs.

Eliminate Delays

Hauling heavy, over-dimensional cargo through the maze of regulations, permitting issues and aging infrastructure can be challenging. One of the benefits of Barnhart's coast-to-coast network is our intimate knowledge of varying state and federal regulations in all 50 states.

Engineered to Meet Regional Standards

Because permitting requirements can change so dramatically from state to state and region to region, Barnhart has engineered, designed and fabricated a variety of transportation systems that meet those standards.

You Have Options

When determining the best option to haul your cargo across the state or country, Barnhart isn't limited by equipment choices. From dual-transporters to dolly rig systems, we have access to a wide variety of equipment options that best fit your needs.

Over 50 Branches

Barnhart has one of the largest crane inventories in North America. When our inventory is combined with our national network of branches and other rigging tools, there are very few jobs we can't handle.
