ARA’s Redesigned Store Locator Makes Equipment Easier to Find

ARA Mobile

The American Rental Association has overhauled its online rental store locator, RentalHQ.com. The updated site makes finding local rental equipment and rental partners easier than ever for construction contractors and professionals. 

RentalHQ.com features easy-to-use searching with fields for equipment type and location. Searches deliver a list of local ARA-member rental partners carrying the equipment like lifts, mini excavators, scaffolding, backhoes, dump trucks, and portable toilets. The search results include contact information for each store.

The website is designed to work seamlessly on desktop computers, laptops and mobile devices.

“Contractors are busy people who need robust technology to meet their needs, especially right now. Our aim with the redesign was to make the user experience as easy, quick and reliable as possible,” said Debby Schaller, vice president of marketing for ARA. “The construction professionals using the site will be easily matched with local rental partners they can work with for a clean and safe rental experience through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”

Each year, more RentalHQ.com see more than 750,000 visitors. ARA says it’s the largest and most comprehensive rental store locator. Visitors to the refreshed site will also find helpful articles and tips on equipment best practices, and new content is added often.

“Visitors get their answers faster with the new site,” Schaller said. “This is especially true on mobile devices, which account for more than two-thirds of site traffic.”
