Do it Best

Kick-Start Your Rental Program

Consider this: every equipment rental guarantees two trips to your store. When you have the products your customers need to start and finish the jobs for which they rent equipment, you have the potential to profit from additional foot traffic and add-on sales. Offering rental sets you apart from your competition and turns your store into a destination for do-it-yourselfers. The Do it Best Rental Center™ provides everything you need to kick-start and run a successful rental operation, including equipment, marketing, and training.


Feasibility Study

Is a rental center right for your business and community? Our comprehensive feasibility study researches your competition, evaluates your marketplace, and reviews your store’s potential with a customized report to help you determine if rental is the right option for you.


Buying Power

The buying strength of our rental members equates to tremendous purchasing power with rental vendors. As a Rental Center member, you’ll have access to a Buyer’s Guide highlighting the products and special pricing available from these vendors. You’ll also be supported by our merchandising department, which works directly with our vendors to get the best pricing and the right products to help make your rental department a success.


Marketing & Advertising

First impressions count. Our rental program provides professional interior and exterior signage so you’re presenting a quality image of your rental department every time. Start-up supplies include easy-to-use rental contracts, reservation cards, equipment tags, and other valuable materials.

We also offer comprehensive marketing tailored to your customers’ project needs. From website layouts to circular pages, we offer solutions targeting DIYers as well as pro contractors.
