SMS Rents, one of eastern Canada’s leading equipment rental companies, has opened a new branch in Toronto. SMS Rents, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, now has 15 locations, 12 in Ontario and three in Quebec.
SMS said a growing number of requests from contractors across the greater Toronto area led to the decision to open the latest branch.
“We had been looking for the ideal location that would allow us to better serve the downtown Toronto core and the surrounding areas,” said Robert Taylor, regional manager for SMS Rents. “[The store’s] functionality, accessibility and close proximity to major roadways and highways provides SMS Rents with the service capability we look for in our locations. It was felt that this location met all of those requirements and fit in well with the company’s plans for growth and expansion.”
The new facility is just a couple of blocks from major highways that cross Toronto — the 401 and the Don Valley Parkway. The store sits on two acres of land and has seven service bays.
“This large, centrally located yard with the ability to house a very large and diverse rental fleet would further the firm’s growth in Toronto and surrounding areas,” added Taylor.
Taylor added that SMS sales reps have already met with a range of new customers in the area to help it determine the right selection of fleet.
SMS Rents is No. 55 on the RER 100.
