Why choose us?

What We Offer

  • CR&R offers high-quality, on-time service, striving to exceed customer expectations for all projects, large and small, regardless of challenges.

    We work with cranes of all types in domestic, commercial and construction settings, and are experienced with working on difficult projects where more detail and planning is required. For example, we have worked on projects involving equalising plant and machinery to and from the hook of a crane through the side of a building right through to rotating loads to fit through a penetration.

Who We Service

  • Our work covers domestic projects through to major assignments such as hospitals, airports, universities and high-rise developments – including rigging and relocation projects on some of Australia’s largest landmarks.

    Whether you are looking for a reputable source of crane hire in Melbourne or a solution for even the most complex and unwieldy project, we have the answers.

About Us

Welcome to CR&R

Welcome to CR&R

We are Custom Rigging and Relocations PTY Ltd, A Melbourne-based team of experts specialising in rigging, crane hire, heavy haulage and machinery transport.

About Us

  • Custom rigging and relocations offered professional and knowledgeable services from the planning stages through to the completion of the project. Their skills, experience and meticulous attention to detail are of a superior calibre. Custom rigging and relocations successfully relocated one of our manufacturing plants and consolidated it into an existing plant. This was carried out with great precision and speed; all whilst production continued on both sites. Exceptional efforts from all the guys at Custom rigging and relocations.

  • We required a tailored means of cranage/rigging with very little capacity to implement ordinary solutions. Custom Rigging & Relocations were not only able to offer a bespoke and cost effective solution, but also a professional, experienced and efficient service - their attention to detail & safety was exceptional. They provide the highest quality in professionalism from design & engineering right through to completion. They will also facilitate all the necessary certifications, permits, fees and approvals. I would highly recommend using Custom Rigging & Relocations for all your crane and rigging services.

  • Recently on a major hospital in Melbourne A G Coombs were faced with a task to supply and install two prefabricated modules onto the existing facade of the building. This task was required to be carried out quickly, and most importantly, safely, as one of the modules was to be installed adjacent to the existing hospital. This required additional. I was impressed with the meticulous way that the task was approached at all times, totally focused on the job at hand, and enjoyable to work with. Thank you Ben and your team!

Custom rigging are extremely proficient in their field, compliant, collaborative and organised, for us, Custom rigging was the really the only option to complete such a complex project in a timely manner.

    Jesse Campbell, MABEN GROUP PTY LTD

  • Our project at the Melbourne Museum through up a number of challenges, which I am pleased to say that Ben and the team at Custom Rigging in conjunction with our team were able to overcome the challenges of the site. We had tight and difficult access with non-standard loads. With Ben and the team on site, the job was completed on time and budget. I would thoroughly recommend Ben for any equipment moving works where a solution is required.
