Maxim Crane was recently involved in Season Two of HOME FREE, which premieres Thursday, June 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. In Season Two, contestants will compete to win the ultimate Dream Home for their personal heroes. Former NFL player, Heisman Trophy winner and sports analyst Tim Tebow will co-host the show alongside celebrity contractor Mike Holmes as they push and encourage the contestants throughout the competition.

Maxim Crane assisted with lifting services for modular homes that can be seen in the first five episodes of Season Two. According to Maxim’s Operations Manager Gary Pace, the Maxim team was excited to learn that they would assist with the show. The homes arrived prefabricated from Nationwide Homes’ plant in Virginia and Maxim Crane was asked to lift two sections of each home off of the trucks to position them onto the foundation. The Maxim team utilized their All Terrain GMK 5275 with a 275 ton capacity to complete the task and the process was reportedly done in a delicate manner. “There were challenges along the way, which is expected from any project when setting up the 32’ wide crane on narrow streets, but we managed to make it work and help give the heroes their Dream Homes,” concluded Pace.

Frank Bardonaro, President of Maxim, was heavily involved in the process and stated, “When the show reached out to us and explained their goals, we felt it was aligned with our mission statement and company goal of being active in the communities that we serve. This project grew in scope from originally requesting a small truck crane to requiring our 275 AT crane due to the weight and radius needed to perform each lift. Our crane specialists in the region worked very closely with the production team to ensure that we had the safest plan to ensure that this amazing venture was completed without any issues.”

“We were honored to be selected as a partner on this project that gives back to the community and were pleased to donate the cranes, trucking and other services the project required. We appreciate the great support that we received from our customers and the people we work with. We were extremely pleased to donate to such a great cause,” added Bardonaro. Maxim Crane looks forward to seeing the future success of the show, the contestants and heroes.
