I’ve dealt with Auto Crane for 20+ years. Their product has been very stable and high quality and they’ve been very attentive if there have been any issues. I’m on an Auto Crane dealer council and we have a number of dealers across North America who help establish what the problems are and how we’re going to go about fixing them. Then Auto Crane takes that information, runs with it and tries to make the appropriate changes in their manufacturing.
There’s a threshold between how much a consumer is willing to pay for quality but every consumer still wants to get the best quality at the lowest price.
However, Auto Crane are high-priced and there are other people in the United States who build a similar product who are doing it for less. Other than that, Auto Crane is a great product and I’ve always recommended them to a friend.
