We are proud to contribute to a circular economy in regards to our rental fleet. Each piece of equipment is inspected and repaired by our expert technicians to allow for a second life – to maximize their lifecycle value and minimize our landfill intensity. Each piece of equipment used and serviced in one of our facilities is inspected with our TRAC fleet management tool. Turning this entire process paperless was a big step in the company strategy and waste reduction program.

Understanding that our fleet vehicles is a main source of GHG emissions, we employ a replacement strategy to improve fuel options when acquiring new equipment. We use intelligent software to optimize dispatch, maintain an anti-idling policy for all company vehicles and vehicles on our properties, provide training and employ data management to monitor and encourage responsible driver behaviour and awareness of the value of conserving fuel to reduce emissions.

Our new eCommerce platform added convenience for customers as they buy, sell and consign used equipment, including work tools and compact equipment. Visit us here.
