Tell us your unusual lift stories

Ever done an unusual lift?

We all have a few unique, unusual and sometimes wild and woolly stories of lifts during our lifetimes, and we would love to share them with our readers.

Like this one featured in last year’s issue of Crane & Hoist Canada magazine:

This crane operator from Langley, B.C. became a cast member of a History TV Canada series, Lost Car Rescue which follows the adventures of a team led by car hunter Matt Sager that locates and recovers vintage automobiles.


Crane operator Lee Brandt (shown here at the crane controls recovering an abandoned Volkswagen Type 2 Microbus) plays a key role on the show, carefully lifting and moving classic cars in various states of disrepair and fragility.

It is a great story – and we’d love to hear from you and share your stories.
