Small Business, Big Plans
Posted by: Erika Green on June 7, 2019
Whether your professional contracting business is just starting out or you’ve been at it for years, there are a few tips that will help boost your busy season. Regardless of your definition of success – maybe it’s more customers, better jobs or improved quality of work – we want to help you get there. And while no two jobs are the same, there are consistent strategies you can use to complete them successfully.
Rent don’t buy
Living up to customers’ expectations means listening, planning and creatively crafting solutions that get the job done. With customers often expecting quick turnaround times, renting large equipment for the job is the cost-effective and time-efficient way to go. Whether you’re hired to re-landscape a backyard or build an entirely new structure, having the flexibility to rent only for the duration necessary is a huge competitive advantage.
A rental-first business structure enables you to shift capital to operational priorities. With competitive hourly, daily, weekly and monthly rentals, The Home Depot Rental absorbs the upkeep, maintenance and storage costs that come with owning large equipment. This, in turn, enables you to reinvest in other parts of your business.
With an expanding rental fleet of large equipment and small tools at more than 1,100 locations across North America, renting from us is the best solution. We’ve introduced new makes, models and manufacturers to ensure our customers have the equipment and tools they need when and where they need it. It’s part of our commitment to serving as your one-stop shop; helping to bring your business vision to life. Wondering what equipment is near you? See here.
Find convenient resources
Nothing makes a job easier than knowing exactly where to go for all of your large equipment and small tool needs. Our full-scale and full-service offerings include large equipment, small tools, safety attachments, trucks, trailers and accessories. We’ll take care of the equipment and job materials – you take care of making your customers happy.
As you plan jobs, the focus is often on the end goal – completing things on time and on budget. To make this a reality, you need to have your go-to resources such as our knowledgeable associates and dependable rental options. Rely on our expertise to help you make informed decisions about the right large equipment and small tools to rent.
Build strong partnerships
You can’t be everything to every customer. Instead, identifying, securing and solidifying strategic partnerships is key. That’s where we come in. We can do everything from identifying the right equipment to worrying about the small details that might slow you down. Our vast footprint means there’s probably a The Home Depot Rental near your jobsite.
But remember, external partnerships aren’t the only ones you should be thinking about. Finding the right people to staff your team is key. Focus on communication, collaboration and talent recruitment to create a great core group. Complement that group with other partners like The Home Depot Rental.
