The American Rental Association has launched a new mobile app called RentalHQ, designed to make finding local rental equipment and rental partners fast and easy for construction contractors and professionals. RentalHQ.com is now available as a mobile app. The app features easy-to-use search functions, ARA said, with fields for equipment type and location. Searches deliver a list of local ARA-member rental partners carrying the equipment, such as mobile elevating work platforms, scaffolding, loaders, backhoes, dump trucks and mini-excavators, with mapped location, contact information and a website link for each store.
With the new RentalHQ app, finding rental construction equipment can be done right from the jobsite. Whether working in town or traveling in the field, contractors can locate reliable rental partners in the area when equipment is needed now. The app functions seamlessly with Wi-Fi and data connection so you don’t need to worry about signal strength in the field. The RentalHQ app is available for both Apple and Android users.
“Contractors are busy people who don’t have time to search for rental equipment when it’s needed now,” said Debby Schaller, vice president of marketing for ARA. “Our purpose with the RentalHQ app is to provide technology that makes the equipment rental experience as easy, fast and reliable as possible. By using the app, construction professionals will be quickly matched with nearby rental partners they can work with for a clean and safe rental experience.”
In addition to the search functions, app users will also find helpful articles and tips on equipment best practices with new topics being added often.
