BigRentz has expanded its network to 2,500 rental partners serving more than 8,500 locations nationwide. The increase in rental suppliers ranges across product categories.
“Our growth strategy has been two-fold, making the rental process as easy as possible, and making sure we can serve customers everywhere,” said Scott Cannon, CEO of BigRentz. “The recent increase in our supplier base essentially makes us the largest equipment network in the nation and is an indicator that rental companies see the value in partnering with BigRentz to drive new revenue, expand into new territories and reach more customers online.”
“Prior to partnering with BigRentz, our sales were based solely on relationships with local construction companies and word of mouth. Since first partnering in 2012, BigRentz has sent Full Throttle more than 800 individual rental deals,” said Rip Williams, of Full Throttle Lift Rentals, which does business in Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties. “We look at BigRentz as a main sales channel for attracting new business. We wouldn’t have asked for a better partner.”
BigRentz markets to customers across a range of industries. Through an online presence, BigRentz enables suppliers to reach customers in non-traditional industries such as telecommunications, manufacturing, energy, sports arenas, and more. BigRentz acts as a sales channel by sending supplier partners rental opportunities. These partners in turn act as a fulfillment department by providing the rentals and great service to BigRentz’s customers. Partners are given access to an automated and transparent platform to claim deals via the BigRentz QuickRentz supplier tool.
In mid-2017, BigRentz announced its president and chief operating officer, Scott Cannon, had been named chief executive officer, replacing co-founder Dallas Imbimbo. Imbimbo, who has served as CEO for the past five years, remained as chairman of the board.
