Hertz Equipment Rental Launches Assurance Plan | Construction News

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC), a subsidiary of The Hertz Corporation, has launched "Equipment Assurance," its equipment extended service plan, in the U.S. in partnership with Warrantech, a subsidiary of AmTrust Financial Services, Inc.

"At Hertz Equipment Sales, our equipment is purchased from some of the most trusted names in the industry and all used equipment that we sell is available in HERC 'Ready to Work' condition and with a full service history. With Equipment Assurance, we have now established an extended service plan program for additional protection," said Robert G. Cowing, Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation's division vice president of sales for North America.

"In essence, our equipment assurance program provides extra peace of mind when buying used equipment if the unexpected occurs or parts need replacing."

Some of the major benefits of the Equipment Assurance program are:

  • Coverage begins on first day of ownership (extended service plan must be purchased within two days of the equipment purchase)
  • Multiple levels of coverage and terms for trucks and equipment
  • Fast, quality service
  • Nationwide network of authorized repair facilities

Equipment Assurance joins the company's HERC Ready Finance suite of "one stop shopping" solutions for equipment purchasing, leasing, and financing.

To obtain a quote or to learn more about Equipment Assurance, customers can contact their local sales representative. Equipment Assurance is available to commercial customers only.

The used equipment for sale from HERC includes earthmoving, aerial, material handling, air compressors, compaction, power generation and trucks.
