Whether you are looking for a 1-ton gantry crane or a 5-ton gantry crane, a fixed height gantry crane or an adjustable gantry crane, you don't have to pay full price if you're willing to buy used. If you are looking for a used gantry crane, you're not likely to find one in the Sunday classifieds. But you will definitely find one online for anywhere between $1,500 and $5,000. Negotiate a much cheaper price on the Web after perusing the listings. The listings will tell you, in some cases, the capacity of the crane, where it's located, why it's being sold, what condition it's in and what parts it may need. You can also view photos of the cranes. Many of the listings ask you to make your best offer. The company claims it is willing to help you get exactly what you want with the budget you have in mind.
