How can you choose the best deal or dealership? To that end, we have compiled a list of a few reputable Ohio equipment dealers to help you. Also included are some tips to help you in the rental process.

Ohio Rental is a full-service rental equipment company located in Mount Vernon, Ohio. They have been in business for over 24 years and now have two locations.

However, because Ohio Rental is a full-service company, they offer a vast range of products. Their rental stock includes items such as pressure washers, sanders, scaffolding, saws, and much more. Smaller products like these compliment their fully stocked, heavy equipment fleet. This combination of products means that they are a one-stop-shop for contractors’ needs.
Southeastern stands behind the equipment they carry and the customers they serve. It’s been that way for over a half-century. Since their founding in 1957, they’ve stayed true to their customer-focused foundation. Yes, they pride themselves on incredible customer service, but they have an equipment fleet to match.
Case, Kubota, Kobelco, and Ditch Witch are just a few of the big-name brands included in their rental fleet. Backhoes, loaders, excavators, and graders are just a few of their heavy equipment types. Also, they rent complementary products like ATVs, lights, and hydraulic hammers. With an easy-to-use website quoting system, it makes renting equipment from Southeastern Equipment a very favorable option.
