About Us

Company Profile

Nick and Robyn DeMarte established Halifax Crane Hire in 1995 as a family owned and operated business in the South West Region, with depots in Albany, Bunbury, Busselton, Bibra Lake, Collie, Ravensthorpe and Greenbushes. With 25 years’ experience in the business, Nick along with his dedicated staff, has proven that the company is more than able to aspire to any requirement asked of them.

Halifax Crane Hire’s dedication to staff training and their work advancement is testimony to the loyalty of the management and the skills they provide to enhance each and every employee.

With his insight into the industry and foreseeing the lack of experienced trades people, in 2009 Nick became an Accredited Worksafe Assessor. Now along with Halifax Crane Hire, we are proud to offer the services of Halifax Skilled Training – Registered Training Organisation No 51592 for courses in the High Risk Category.

In 2019 we added a 60 tonne Liebherr crane to complement our existing fleet of 20 cranes which includes Frannas (15, 20 & 25), Tadanos (7, 30 & 55 tonne) and Liebherrs (40, 50, 60, 70, 130 & 250 tonne) Tom Thumb/ City cranes (7, 10, 12 & 16 tonne).

Halifax Crane Hire would like to invite your company to participate in a long term contract or casual hire with us and join other companies such as Premier Coal, Tronox Pigment & Mining and Laminex in working with our company. I believe you will find our rates very competitive and Halifax Crane Hire will maintain these rates for the contract period.

Some of our regular clients include, BGC Construction, Coogee Chemicals, Griffin Coal, Perkins, Westrac and RTW to name a few.

As a company we are committed to high quality service and professionalism in everything we deliver.
