The Barnhart Advantage

Eliminate Delays

One of the benefits of Barnhart's coast-to-coast network is our deep knowledge of state and federal regulations in all 50 states. Our specialists have the resources and personal contacts to help you navigate the varying DOT rules, regulations and permitting processes across the U.S.

Streamlined Processes

One call gives you access to a team of experts and engineers that knows the best methods to mobilize and perform heavy lift projects — anywhere in the U.S.

Equipment Network

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.

Lower Mobilization Costs

Our branch network allows us to station cranes across the U.S. This decentralized approached could lead to significant reductions in the cost to mobilize a large crane for your project.

Gulf Coast to Great Lakes Express

Barnhart's unique capabilities include an innovative solution that can save you time and money in getting over-dimensional cargo from the Gulf to the Great Lakes...and beyond.

Simplified Logistics

Instead of having to deal with multiple companies to coordinate the movement of project cargo across barge, over-the-road and rail, Barnhart not only manages, but also owns the needed transportation assets, giving you more efficient cost controls and one bill from one company.
