In the construction business, people come first; but a close second is your equipment. If your equipment breaks down on the job site, work can come to a grinding halt. That can lead to costly downtime and budget overruns that hurt your bottom line and your reputation. With over 20 years in the equipment rental business and locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, Blue Line Rental is part of the world’s largest equipment rental company.
Today, more and more large construction companies and contractors realize the benefits of renting much of their equipment. Renting eliminates the need to tie up valuable resources in rarely used equipment and turns a mechanical break-down from a catastrophe into a minor inconvenience. Whether it’s a scissor lift, an earthmover, a lighting solution or a full power station, Blue Line Rental has what you need and will stand behind their equipment, giving you one less worry on the job site.

Who Can Rent
Conventional thinking might lead you to believe that only large construction companies working the biggest jobs with fat budgets are looking for rental equipment. The truth is, more and more contractors, working jobs of all sizes, are turning to equipment rental to meet their needs. Blue Line Rental allows you to rent what you need, when you need it.
Customers can choose what they need, and how long they’ll need the equipment, in a way that ensures maximum efficiency.
