Project Summary:

Crawford's dedicated team worked, around the clock, to assist with last-minute adjustments during the installation process. The support stand weighed a total of 2500 pounds (20' x 20' square).

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING

I would just like to give a shout out to Adam for all of his work this morning. He was actually at my neighbors house, installing a pump for her basement. I asked him if he had anymore pumps on his truck, he said "yep, 42 of them". Of course, he was joking, but he did have one more pump. When he was finished with my neighbor, he promptly came over and installed my pump. I have over 8" of water in my basement that's 2,500 sq. ft. in size. Adam was very professional, positive and had a great sense of humor. This was the first time I have ever used, Crawford Companies, but it will NOT be the last! Thanks again Adam!
