Melbourne-based crane hire company, Moorabbin Mobile Cranes, have decided to hand over the reigns to the business to Membrey’s Transport & Crane Hire as of 29 October, 2018.
The family-owned company has been operating in Melbourne since 1978, providing crane hire services throughout Melbourne, Dandenong and the Mornington Peninsula, and has operated through the years with a commitment to high levels of service and customer satisfaction.
“After 40 years of providing our services for all your cranage needs, we have decided on a lifestyle change,” Geoff Curtis said.
“Along with the transfer of our equipment, Mark, Lance and Anthony have decided to make the move to join the team at Membrey’s. This will mean the same friendly faces you already know and trust, along with some new ones, as well as a greater variety of equipment and services available.
“With the equipment transfer, there’s about 12 pieces of gear coming across. We are getting a 40-tonne Liebherr crane, 220-tonne Frannas, a 13-tonne City crane, 7-tonne forklifts, four trucks and two specialised trailers.
“We would like to thank all of our customers for their business and loyalty over the years. It has been very much appreciated. Going forward we are sure you will all be able to establish the same working relationship with Membrey’s that we were lucky enough to have with you. We wish you all the best for all your future endeavours.”
Operating since 1962, Membrey’s offers trailers to suit all needs and provides a diverse and unique range of heavy haulage solutions. On top of their vast heavy haulage resources, the company’s services include crane hire, crane trucks, pilot vehicles, traffic management and transport. The company operates Australia-wide, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
As part of the acquisition, Moorabbin’s modern fleet of quality cranes, which are all fitted with the latest technology and safety features, will be transferred over to join Membrey’s fleet of machines.
Craig Membrey, managing director at Membrey’s Transport & Crane Hire, has personally known Geoff for close to 35 years and said it is an honour to take over such a reputable company like Moorabbin Mobile Cranes.
“We are extremely proud and honoured to be taking over such a beautiful family-owned company that has an awesome and trusted name in the industry. I wish Geoff the very best in his retirement,” Membrey said.
“Some family members and a couple of their staff are coming across too. We look forward to working with them to continue to deliver services that meet all our clients’ needs in a highly professional and efficient manner.”
