COVID-19 Resources for the rental industry

COVID-19 continues to have an unprecedented impact on our world. ARA is committed to providing resources and support to the rental industry through the Clean. Safe. Essential. (CSE) campaign. CSE communicates to people across the country, that it is safe to rent construction equipment for jobs, general tools for home projects and everything you need for a party or event, because we take the right precautions and prioritize the safety of employees and customers. This is an outward-reaching effort to provide best practices for rental operations to give their customers peace of mind.

Clean. Safe. Essential. Training Program

The Clean. Safe. Essential. training program was created to ensure the cleanliness and safety of all rental operations, employees, and customers.


ARA has sent letters to each state Governor

A letter has been sent from ARA President Beth Hoff Blackmer to each governor advising them of how equipment and event rental stores within their states have the essential emergency equipment that is needed now. All the letters are personalized to each governor and copied to their Emergency Management and Public Health contacts.

To view a copy of the letter sent to your state use the drop down menu below.
