United Rentals this week announced the launch of a used equipment portal that offers thousands of items from the world’s largest rental fleet.
“By creating a secure channel for a large volume of online inventory, we have taken the uncertainty out of remote equipment purchases,” said United Rentals CEO Michael Kneeland.
The new portal uses an e-commerce platform that can be accessed internationally. All items are value-priced, with deeper discounts located in a Special Values section. Listings are refreshed in real time and are searchable by category, keyword, model year, manufacturer and location. Shoppers can download images, specs, prices and contact by converting a search into a product sheet with one click.
As an incentive to try the site, United Rentals is offering six months of free United Guard warranty coverage with every online equipment purchase through March 31. United Guard provides free equipment inspections and service, covering the cost of labor and parts for most repairs.
The portal — www.unitedrentals.com/usedsales — is open to buyers worldwide, with delivery and financing available in the United States and Canada.
Based in Greenwich, Conn., United Rentals is No. 1 on the RER 100.
