Professional Handling Services

​At Bulldog Cartage, our unique handling experience and capabilities are one of our most important assets! With our expansive, 250,000 sq foot facility, with 22 overhead cranes carrying up to 40,000 lbs in single-pick lifting capacity, there is almost no limit to what we can handle. Our team is head up by a former 597 union journeyman pipefitter and superintendent, and that direct field experience has fostered a tremendous level of proficiency in our picking ability, and more importantly, our ability to understand the challenges of today’s job sites and logistics. From 48 foot long roof-top units, to 30,000 chillers and everything in between, we have the ability and the experience to handle a wide variety of equipment with safety and confidence.

Nick, all I have to say is we could not have completed 50 picks in 96 minutes in in the South Loop without the Bulldog team. Ralph did a tremendous job in ALL phases of this potentially logistical nightmare.

I have been using Bulldog Cartage since July of 2012 for storage and delivery of equipment. They have unloaded, stored and delivered everything from a 24,000# chiller to a 50# skid. Bulldog Cartage’s employees are knowledgeable and professional along with my number one item always on time which is very important in the construction industry. Bulldog Cartage is #1in my book and is at the top of my list when it comes to storage and delivery.
