We have dedicated cranes and personnel for this specialized industry, and service customers all the way from the border of Mexico up to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Reliable has excellent safety records and supports several maintenance/warranty service contractors as well as O&M manufacturers. As a result of safe and operationally sound performance, we have been fortunate enough to be awarded “preferred” status with most if not all of the contractors we support. We can assist as much or as little as each contractor prefers by way of bare rental solutions, operated cranes, or complete rigging assistance with up-tower crews.
Our Wind Industry Services
Reliable Crane Service provides lifting solutions all across the wind industry. This includes bare crane rentals, operated and maintained cranes, as well as complete rigging solutions with up-tower crews for new construction and warranty/maintenance projects. We safely and successfully execute lifts in support of blade bearings, yaw drives, gearboxes, blades, as well as installation and change-outs of other components.
Wind and other energy industry clients come to us because we consistently deliver successful, timely, and on-budget lifting solutions. Plus, we have an industry-leading EMR and safety record. Reliable Crane Services has received multiple A-ratings from various third-party safety evaluators including, but not limited to, ISNetworld.
For high-profile work of this kind, it is invaluable to have dedicated cranes and experienced crews. We make it easier to ensure the right equipment and staffing for your project with clear schedules and billing plans that allow for stress-free commitments. We are also known to be highly flexible during periods of high wind and areas that experience frequent weather delays.

The Wind Industry Is Booming in the U.S.
Wind energy is the fastest-growing segment in U.S. power generation. As of early 2020, it accounted for around 7% of the total national energy production and more than 20% for six states. The current administration has made it clear that it intends to invest in renewables, with the wind industry playing a massive role in significantly reducing carbon emissions further. It is broadly agreed that wind power is among the most effective solutions for avoiding emissions and displacing fossil fuels.
This suggests that wind turbine installations will continue to be a worthwhile investment for both private and public power services. Reliable Crane Services and our portfolio of 50+ cranes will continue to provide high-quality lifting solutions to make turbine installations, inspections, and maintenance easier, safer, and more profitable.
