Bigge Transitions to Bare Rental of Specialized Heavy-Lift Equipment

August 5, 2019 -- Due to the desires of a growing number of their customers in the heavy lift and transportation industry, Bigge has transitioned from service providers to suppliers of heavy lift equipment through bare rentals and sales. 

The change affects only the heavy lift and engineering portion of Bigge's business. The company's crane rental and sales operations remain as they always have.

Bigge has converted its business into a rent, lease to purchase, and sell model for the equipment necessary for general contracting work. With this strategic approach, Bigge has rotated its fleet to the benefit of contractors and owners at the forefront of this shift in how business gets done. 

Since 1916, Bigge Crane and Rigging Co. has been one of the premier providers of cranes, and specialized heavy lift equipment rentals and sales across America. Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area in San Leandro, California, Bigge operates a strategic network of 18 additional service locations, allowing them to provide logistical and field support throughout the nation. Bigge has more than 1,500 cranes in its fleet and is the Enerpac heavy lift equipment dealer of North America.
