Our Story

Affordable Erecting Inc. was founded in 1996 by Tracy and Janice Haferkorn as a one man, one truck, and one lift crew operation that quickly grew into so much more. Affordable has worked for both large enterprises and small startups. As machinery movers with decades of experience, we ensure that any job can be done to your specifications in a timely, friendly, and professional manner. Our facility in West Bend can also accommodate private and secure storage for your machines.

Tracy Haferkorn, Owner and Operator

Tracy (TJ) Haferkorn has worked in the machinery moving industry since the late 70’s.

TJ prides himself on his experience, tough work ethic, and perfectionism. In his free time, TJ enjoys working on motorcycles, spending time with his family, and relaxing at his cabin “up north”.
