Multiple capital sources delivers value

Case Study: Crane Rental Service, Inc.

Crane Rental Service, Inc.

Crane Rental serves businesses, ports, and other organizations across So. California. In addition to crane rentals ranging from 25-ton truck-based cranes to 450-ton all-terrain cranes, the business offers rigging and trucking services. Founded in 1965, the company has been woman-owned since 2013.


When regulatory changes required replacement of several cranes in their fleet, Cathy Greinke, President of Crane Rental, began looking at financing options. Crane Rental was satisfied with its financial services providers, but Greinke saw value in further diversifying. “Many years ago, we owed a significant amount to a single bank,” she says. “At a time when business was down, the bank called all the notes. We found another bank that was willing to finance us, but we learned not to put all our eggs in one basket.”


Before replacing the aging cranes, Greinke wanted to first refinance a loan on a crane they would retain for their fleet. Pitney Bowes Bank built an agreement to meet Greinke’s goals for the refinance with advantageous terms almost a full percentage point lower than their previous rate, and partnered with Greinke to finance the purchase of the new cranes.

“I like the versatility of having multiple sources of financing. If something happens with one financial services firm, we will continue to have access to liquidity. Pitney Bowes Bank’s personalized, consultative approach makes them an obvious choice for our business.”
