Around the world, Hertz is best known as a car rental company. However, it also supplies specialty equipment rentals to companies. This is a part of the business that Hertz has been looking to expand for a while. It has been able to do just that with the opening its first equipment rental facility in Great Falls, Mont, where it will supply specialty rentals for commercial mining, refineries, commercial construction, oil producers and industrial manufacturers.
This new branch gives people in Great Falls access to Hertz Equipment Rental’s growing fleet. Companies can even rent equipment from other branches around the Hertz network. This new location is 10,710 square feet. To help host all of the special equipment, Hertz had to build the facility on a 2.7 acre plot of land.
The vice president of sales for the North American division of Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, Robert G. Cowing, said that the company is extremely excited to launch its first branch in Montana, which will help meet demand in this growing marketplace. It will also help Hertz expand its nationwide footprint in the specialty equipment rental industry.
Cowing added that the Great Falls location is going to be linked to 15 other stores located on the Pacific Network. This means that customers who are renting at the Great Falls location will have access to a huge range of equipment, even if it’s not located at that particular site.
Some of the equipment that companies have access to in Great Falls include: welders, pumps, earth moving vehicles, forklifts, lighting, heaters, air compressors and mixers. The branch even has a variety of power generators that companies can rent for whatever reason. This location has a number of vehicle rentals too. However, the vehicle rentals are catered to businesses in the construction industry, including water trailers, trucks, trailers, dump trucks, 2-ton flatbed trucks and half-ton pickup trucks.
On top of all of this, the location has a showroom. Featured inside, visitors can see new power tools. They can also see Honda generators in action, safety equipment and diamond blades. Some of the best equipment that Hertz has to offer is found right in this showroom. The Great Falls location is only open Monday to Friday. The hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Companies can also rent to own some of the vehicles available through purchase plans that fit just about any budget.
