Welcome to Gatwood - Serving the Chicagoland area

Gatwood Crane Service has been serving the Chicagoland area for over 60 years.  Gatwood has always provided quality trustworthy service.  We began in the 1940’s as a steel erector.  Shortly after starting the steel erection business, we were asked if we could put some HVAC units on a roof for one of Chicago’s leading mechanical contractors.  Of course we were happy to oblige. Realizing the need for this service, Gatwood transitioned from a steel erector to a full service crane rental service. 

Gatwood Crane Service grew from two small cranes to one of Chicago’s largest crane companies. Our fleet of cranes ranges from our 2 ton “Mini” Crane” to our NEW 500 ton mobile crane. Our goal is to deliver cost-effective lifting solutions while maintaining the safest most reliable service in our industry. Our commitment to safety has always led us.

Gatwood Crane Service will continue to grow by providing the quality, safety, and integrity that our customers demand from their crane service.

Gatwood Crane Service knows what it takes to get the job done right!
