Open House update!

Things are coming together quickly! We're very happy with the response from folks who are going to participate by showcasing their wares. We'll be advertising it on the radio soon, and we're holding off identifying who's confirmed just yet. I'll update here first, so stay tuned :)

April 6th, 2013 - Open house!

We're announcing it here first, you'll get to hear the good and the bad! Our goal is to create an event focused on getting things done. The busy season is just around the corner, and we want to be able to help you make the most of it.

My ambitions are high. I'd like to bring all the people necessary to take your project or challenges to success in one place for the day. From conception to completion, I'd like to have any resource necessary onsite. Whether a realtor, appraiser, Draftsperson/engineer, contractors, materials vendors, banker, equipment operators, and of course for do-it-yourselfers, our equipment and knowledgeable folks to train on how to use it most efficiently. We want to help you go from thinking about it, to admiring the finished product!

Our challenges as of today are; bringing in all of the support vendors, we hope to be able to share the vision with them. Marketing the event, with just 6 weeks to pull this off, it is going to be challenging! Site prep., I'm always striving to make tomorrow a better experience than today, that includes making our surroundings as pleasing as possible. Cleaning and painting are long overdue for some of our planters, parking curbs etc., Hopefully we can make time to get things looking their best for the event.

As promised, some picture's from the ARA Rental Show 2013

At the show, we got to hear some great motivational speakers, and see a lot of new or improved products. Making rental items easier to transport seems to be a strong theme this year. This picture of an auger (used for digging post holes) is a good example of some neat engineering.

Picture's are slow in coming..

Sorry, we've just been quite busy at the shop which is a great thing :) I'll try to get more up this weekend.

ARA Rental Show and Convention

Simply amazing, I just don't know how else to describe this show. There were over 600 vendors covering every aspect of the rental industry, and several great classes both motivating and business operation centered. I'll post some pictures once I can get my PC fired up.

Wow, time flies when your having fun!

Well, its been a while since I've posted to the blog, that is for certain. There have been a great many changes since the move to our new larger facilities. Some of the major changes are;

  • Created a new position of store manager and hired Damon Ervin who was previously employed at RSC locally. Damon has proven to really be a great asset to the customers and our business. 
  • Completely remodeled both websites, Roseburg Rental and Tim Allen Equipment both of which are much more "mobile friendly"
  • Brought in a substantial amount of new rental equipment. We added two ride on Ditch Witch trenchers, two Kubota KX91 excavators, two Genie 1930 Scissor lifts and a Skyjack 2646 scissor lift.  
I'll try to do a better job of putting fresh content out here from now on. Thanks for stopping by!
