G.F. Preston Sales and Service Ltd. has a full line of heavy equipment to meet your construction and landscaping needs in Ontario. Renting equipment is a great alternative solution to buying for short term or one-time use equipment needs.
We offer many of our machines for rent on a daily, weekly or monthly basis (we do not rent by the hour, the minimum rental period is one day).
We also offer a Rent-to-Purchase option and will apply up to 100% of the rental payments made towards the purchase price.
We also offer a rental line of small residential power equipment perfect for home or cottage owners. Items such as augers, water pumps, cement and concrete finishing units, wood splitters, and paving stone installation units are available to rent daily and weekly.
The below conditions are our terms to rent a machine and are non-negotiable
Payment, including rental deposit are required in FULL before the machine leaves our yard
YOU MUST BE AN EXPERIENCED OPERATOR OR THE INDIVIDUAL OPERATING THE MACHINE ON YOUR BEHALF MUST BE EXPERIENCED IN OPERATING HEAVY EQUIPEMENT. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE THIS AND WILL DENY YOU RENTAL OF EQUIPMENT SHOULD WE FEEL THAT YOUR EXPERIENCE OR THE INDIVIDUAL OPERATING THE EQUIPMENT ON YOUR BEHALF IS NOT SUITABLE OR ADEQUATE – THIS IS OUR POLICY.
We require a standard rental deposit of $ 3,000 which will be pre-authorized on a major credit card – this means that the funds in the amount of $ 3,000 will be held for the duration of the rental. We reserve the right to pre-authorize the card for the term or length of the rental.
Fuel and cleanup if required upon return of the rental is the customers responsibility and you will be charged the applicable amount on the credit card we have on file. Minimum clean rate of 1 hr at $ 79/hr.
If the machine is returned with no damage, the deposit will be released, however, if the machine has any sort of damage, the entire deposit will be processed and held until the repair is complete and should the repair be in excess of the rental deposit, the customer is financially responsible for this and the balance owing for the damage will be charged on the card for which the deposit was processed with. This is our policy.
Contact Luke for further details or to book your rental.
