Surf City Cranes Makes Crane Hire Easy

Surf City Cranes was established by Jon and Sharon Morrish back in January 2006 with the purchase of a Tadano TR 200M-4 Rough Terrain Crane. The company’s first 20T rough terrain crane was perfect for providing access to steep building sites and up to 3 to 5 storey apartment buildings. That model has since gone on to become our most popular crane with 5 machines in the fleet.

Jon and Sharon then set about building the region’s most exceptional family owned crane hire service. Ten years on, an outstanding reputation, well maintained crane fleet and a great Management and operational crew, that mission is well on its way to becoming reality. They believe in always striving to improve so that their clients always get the best.

If you want great service, combined with a one stop shop, contact Surf City Cranes. We will do out utmost to assist.


Mr. Morrish is now one of the most respected operators in the business. He says, “Being a crane hire owner operator inspires me to be the best at what I do, and provide exceptional service every time.”
