About Us

United Crane and Rigging has served the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas for more than 45 years, specializing in providing clients with operated and bare crane equipment rental. Established as United Rental Equipment Company in 1968, we quickly expanded into neighboring Northeastern states while adding new equipment like large crawler cranes to our fleet.

The 1990s saw further change and expansion for our company. New ownership embarked upon a growth strategy that dramatically increased the size and scope of our crane rental company. The UCR fleet grew to about 100 cranes, and we opened new locations throughout our service area.

At the turn of the millennium, we changed our name to United Crane and Rigging Company to more accurately reflect our company’s focus and mission. In the past 15 years, we have added new products to our line-up, including tower cranes, hoists, and equipment storage services.

Our crane rental company is active in the crane and rigging industry and is affiliated with multiple industry groups. We are committed to safety believe in using the latest technology such as lift planning software used to craft safe and efficient lifting solutions for our clients.

The years have seen many changes at UCR, but our core mission has remained the same: providing quality lifting products and expert advice to our clients.
