      I've dealt with Auto Crane for 20+ years. Their product has been very stable and high quality and they’ve been very attentive if there have been any issues. I'm on an Auto Crane dealer council and we have a number of dealers across North America who help establish what the problems are and how we're going to go about fixing them. Then Auto Crane takes that information, runs with it and tries to make the appropriate changes in their manufacturing. There's a threshold between how much a consumer is willing to pay for quality but every consumer still wants to get the best quality at the lowest price. However, Auto Crane are high-priced and there are other people in the United States who build a similar product who are doing it for less. Other than that, Auto Crane is a great product and I've always recommended them to a friend.

      We service and outfit trucks and one of the things we outfit them with are cranes, and Auto Crane is one of our main vendors that we put on the trucks. The Auto Crane representatives are very helpful. I've worked with every single one of them and they’re all great people. They make my job a whole lot easier. We call them daily to order parts, get price and availability, and they’re able to answer any of my technical questions and anything that I may need. Our equipment and account manager orders all of the account equipment that we may need for installation and they fully help with all that. We've been with Auto Crane for many years and everything’s been great working with them.

      We purchased our second Auto Crane. Body, it's clean smooth body Design, Internal Protected door hinges, dual outriggers on the titan 60 body wide 30" bump. I also Todd ** meet me at the dealer and install the Nexstar 3 remote. All the component work awesome together as a unit. The Nexstar 3 remote is incredible easy to handle, easy to maneuver, and have any LED screen on the remote with all the pertinent information you should have when you're running the crane is incredible. When it comes time to purchase my next service truck it's absolutely going to be an Auto Crane.

      We've been a distributor for Auto Crane for 15 plus years. We're one of their top three distributors in the country. We'll be a distributor for them until they cut us off, and that probably isn't going to happen. I met with the CEO, the vice president of marketing and sales, and our area rep last night for dinner. It's business as usual with them.

      We became a dealer for Auto Crane about 30 years ago. The sales rep was fantastic and they provide us with their cranes and parts and knowledge to help us out when we have an issue. They're a great bunch of people to work with.
