When you rent a boom truck or other crane from Superior Rigging and Erecting Co., you aren’t just getting a construction vehicle. For over 70 years, we have been delivering exceptional results across the Southeast, but our years of experience aren’t the only thing that sets us apart from other rental services.

  • Specialized Rigging: Perhaps the most important aspect of any construction activity is the rigging, and we have earned the reputation as the rigging company with the gentle touch. We have the knowledge and experience to handle even the most challenging and unique projects.

  • Safety: Occupational safety is at the forefront of everything we do. We are relentless in taking every safety measure possible and are committed to never compromising the safety of anyone involved with the project. We also ensure all our boom truck operators are fully licensed and certified.

What is a Boom Truck?

Boom trucks, sometimes called bucket trucks, refer to a wide range of vehicles that feature a hydraulic crane mounted on a commercial truck chassis. These trucks are extremely versatile and are commonly found on construction sites. From lifting heavy loads or workers to new heights to carrying construction equipment or building materials across the job site, boom trucks help out workers in a variety of industries.

Common Features and Accessories

Boom trucks usually feature components like:

  • A telescopic boom
  • Boom cylinder
  • Boom head
  • Outriggers 
  • Flatbed

They will also have an end attachment like a hook, winch, or cherry picker for lifting personnel.

Why Rent a Boom Truck?

Boom trucks offer unrivaled versatility on the construction site. Perhaps their biggest advantage is the fact that they can typically be driven on freeways. This gives them a distinct maneuverability advantage over other mobile cranes, like all-terrain or rough terrain cranes. In addition, they can also function like a flatbed truck, transporting materials or small machinery across a job site, or even across the city.

A wide variety of industries benefit from a boom truck crane, but these are some of the most common:

  • Construction Projects
  • Utility Companies
  • HVAC Companies

Boom Truck Considerations

These construction vehicles can provide a wide variety of benefits on a construction site. Here are the main things to remember.

Boom trucks offer unrivaled mobility on the job. Their ability to travel on freeways can’t be matched by other mobile cranes. That being said, on sites with uneven or difficult terrain, it’s a good idea to have a rough terrain or all-terrain crane available as well.

Due to their size, these cranes are great for tight spaces or smaller projects. Of course, they are a welcome, sometimes necessary, addition to larger jobs as well.

These are generally the best cranes for lifting personnel. There is a wide array of options available when lifting someone to new heights for different applications.
