About Us



Established in 2001, Crane’s Aerial Truck Service (CATS) is an independent third-party crane inspection service dedicated to providing operational safety through objective inspections with a functional understanding of equipment physics and operation.

Clientele include crane owner operators, leasing companies and contractors active in steel erection, bridge construction, electrical construction, power plant construction and renovation, building supply, DoD service and local, state and federal jurisdictions.

In today’s construction business, an ever-increasing number of contractors are requiring third party inspections on cranes and other equipment. To be covered for all liability scenarios you need to have your inspections performed by a truly disinterested (third party) inspector.

This is what separates us from the rest. CATS was founded on the premise that inspections are our only business so we can provide you with legitimate third party inspections. Being geared up to perform inspections any place and at any time and being recognized by this industry as a top notch inspection company provides our customers with the jobsite acceptance they want and ease of getting the job done that they have come to expect. That’s our secret to keeping our customers with us.
