Keeping up with our reputation of earth moving and land clearing

Our largest crane in the fleet arrived at site on Derwent Way in Delta on an early Tuesday morning to execute the removal of six large, heavy tanks.

Phoenix Truck & Crane specializes in hoisting and transporting heavy pieces, so when our long-time customer was ready to discard several above ground tanks, we were their only call.

When we looked at the tank layout provided (image on the left), we knew that rigging instructions, strong communication and team work would be needed to safely complete the lift of the eight-foot tanks.  Keeping this in mind, we sent three experienced operators – one who acted as a rigger – and reminded them that:

  • The tanks would be empty
  • One spreader bar would be required
  • Tanks would be tilted horizontally and placed on our 22 Ton Stiff Boom trailer in preparation for transport
  • Precision and patience would be key elements to complete this job successfully

As you’ll see in the photo gallery below, the weather was not on our side that day. The snow could have easily been reason to delay or cancel this job, but due to the extensive pre-planning as well as the experience and professionalism of our team onsite, this project was completed on schedule, resulting in a satisfied customer.
