Illinois-based equipment rental company Lizzy Lift has merged with online rental specialist BigRentz. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 2012, BigRentz is an online construction equipment rental marketplace. The company has more than 2,500 rental partners across 8,500 U.S. locations. Lizzy Lift has been co-owned by sisters Jennifer DuBose-Lombard and Elizabeth Faruzzi for over 20 years. The merger increases BigRentz’s client base, catalog and rental partner network, and Lizzy Lift clients will have access to the BigRentz automated platform to allow online bookings.
“Our goal has always been to make heavy equipment rentals easier for our clients by leveraging technology and automation,” commented DuBose-Lombard, senior vice president. “BigRentz has the technology infrastructure that completely automates the equipment rental workflow and the user interface that makes it easier for clients to not just book rentals, but also invoice management and equipment logistics. It’s a win-win for our customers and BigRentz.”
“Jennifer and Elizabeth have grown a very successful business with a stellar reputation, and I look forward to having them be major contributers on the BigRentz leadership team,” said Scott Cannon, CEO of BigRentz. “We’re excited to lever Lizzy Lift’s lengthy industry experience, product knowledge, and long-term rental partner relationships which all our combined customers will benefit from.”
