essential equipment for contractors during hurricane season

The Season of Challenge and Opportunity

Wind and water. Power outages. Downed trees and damaged buildings. If you’re a contractor or tradesman on the East Coast, you know that Hurricane Season (June 1st through November 30th) is something you, your crew, and your business have GOT to be prepared for. You need to keep your worksites safe and operational. You’ve got to remove water and clean up debris. You also have to be ready to respond to the sharp increases in demand for new work in the aftermath of the season’s most damaging storms.

The tool, supply, and construction rental equipment companies that serve contractors know how important storm season is, too. Working with a go-to rental partner you know and trust before Hurricane Season starts can help you be ready for both the challenges and business opportunities that come with it. The right choice will have not only the inventory and the expertise you need, but also the advice and service you really count on, from getting your crew the tools to keep working safely, to letting you reserve industrial generator rentals and other high-demand items that may be all booked up if you wait until a big storm is already on its way.



Electrical Equipment Rentals

Savvy contractors know that different jobs require different tools. It isn’t practical for any contractor to own every tool they could possibly need, which is why tool rental companies are so essential to a growing business. This entry in our pro series is going to look at some of our favorite electrical equipment rentals for electrical contractors, specifically lifts and generators. We’ll be looking at the range of lifts and generators available, how they can help you take on and easily finish new types of jobs, and how opting for rentals from a reliable rental company is a smart and cost-effective move for your contracting business.


Rent Hardscaping Equipment for Your Landscaping Business

Owning your own small or medium sized landscaping business can be gratifying, but it can also be hard to grow into a larger, more profitable operation. There are a huge variety of jobs and each can take task-specific tools, which can be expensive to own and maintain. Focusing your business on specific areas of work may make you an expert, but you could be passing up the chance to grow to a more profitable level. If you’re looking to take your business in a new direction that will help you stand out from your competitors, adding hardscaping services is worth considering. Offering both softscaping and hardscaping services makes you a one stop shop for clients with complex landscape plans. By adding walkways, patios, retaining walls, and even small garden pools to your list of services, you’ll add a major source of revenue. And you can do so with lower risk and lower costs by choosing to partner with a rental equipment company.


Wire Puller Rental

If you’re an electrician who runs your own business, you know that this industry is very project focused. Your equipment needs will change from job to job, and that means that some specialized items may go largely unused. Buying those items is usually going to be cost prohibitive for this reason. Why go with a very expensive long-term solution to a short-term need? Does your contractor business need its own aerial platform? How often would you actually use a trencher? And if you have them, is it worth the cost of storage, maintenance, and repairs if you do only use them on every tenth job?
