McClure Equipment Sales has been operating over 26 years, however I have been in the heavy equipment and construction industry since 1963. I have worked for a large equipment dealership, owned my own grading business, later owned a Massey Ferguson dealership, and for the past 26 years I have been selling heavy equipment with a concentration in all types of cranes. I will use my 50 years of varied experience and learned knowledge to help you select the crane that will match your particular and individual need.
The 26 years of crane sales has afforded me a wide range of opportunities as well as a vast knowledge of the crane world. We have been fortunate enough to cross paths with most of the largest crane dealers as well as the top crane users and small independent contractors.
We do not advertise extensively as we wholesale mostly with rapid turnovers of inventory. We purchase primarily from dealer trade-ins, banks, finance companies and a good rapport with large crane users. We export and import from our overseas contacts.
In the early 1980’s I spent two years in Europe, France, Ireland, and Germany establishing reputable contacts. We were successful in supplying the Army Corp of Engineers with one of the largest floating cranes in domestic waters, known as the ‘Hercules’. It is still in operation on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
We purchase and sale cranes of all sizes. We repair and transport cranes anywhere. We take pride in saying we have been in business since 1963 in the Charlotte, North Carolina area and we are not a large company. I am a ‘hands on’ sales person making sure my customers receive what was agreed upon from purchase to delivery. As you probably have surmised, I am fairly knowledgable with the older friction cranes.
We would welcome any inquires you might have and would be glad to share any knowledge or information I might have with you!
