About Regal Crane Hire

Meet Haydon & Annette

Haydon, our owner and operator, was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand. His wife Annette, who takes care of the business development, marketing and general administration of the business was born and raised in sunny, Brisbane Australia. Haydon always knew he wanted to follow his late father’s footsteps and become a crane operator. So, at the ripe age of 16, that’s exactly what he did.  After completing all the required operating tickets, he started his new career in the crane business. Crane Operation has been his passion since the beginning and he always knew that one day he would start his own company which would allow him to teach and mould his team of riggers and operators with the high standards and values he adopts.

Regal Crane Hire has expanded over the years and Hayden and Anette have brought on a quality, professional team that service the Queensland area. Our business values and commitment to our customers allow us to maintain the highest level of safety practices in our industry and we pride ourselves on our quality of work.
