RentalHQ Mobile App Launched by the ARA

RentalHQ mobile app new from ARA

The new RentalHQ mobile app makes finding local rental equipment and rental partners fast and easy for construction contractors and professionals. The popular online rental store locator is now available as a mobile app. This puts the most comprehensive rental store locator at your fingertips for on-the-go rental equipment needs.

The RentalHQ app was developed by the American Rental Association (ARA). Its features include  easy-to-use search functions with fields for equipment type and location. Searches deliver a list of local ARA-member rental partners carrying the equipment. These items include lifts and scaffolding, loaders, backhoes, dump trucks and mini excavators. Additionally, it includes mapped location, contact information and a website link for each store.

With the new RentalHQ app, contractors can find rental construction equipment right from the job site. Whether working in town or traveling in the field, contractors can locate reliable rental partners in the area when they need equipment right away. 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 they need it now. Our purpose with the RentalHQ app is to provide technology that makes the equipment rental experience as easy, fast and reliable as possible,” said Debby Schaller, Vice President of Marketing for ARA. “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.”

Additional features

In addition to easy-to-use search function, app users will also find helpful articles and tips on equipment best practices with new topics added often.

Each year, more than 750,000 visitors access RentalHQ for fast and easy help finding rental equipment. The new RentalHQ mobile app puts the largest and most comprehensive rental store locator at your fingertips. Construction professionals can download the RentalHQ app from the App Store and Google Play.
