ESTA is the leading European association for the abnormal road transport and mobile crane rental industry.

Welcome to ESTA

Welcome to ESTA, the leading European association for the abnormal road transport and mobile crane rental industry.


We represent national trade associations whose members are mobile crane and access platform, rental and abnormal road transport companies.


Individual companies can become special members if there is no appropriate national association from their country.


ESTA also welcomes affiliate members from relevant clients, government departments, regulatory bodies, service companies and all organisations active in our markets.


In addition, ESTA has recently created the category of “Supporter” for companies that are members of their ESTA’s national associations but who want to become more directly involved in ESTA’s work.
