New heavy equipment industry website Indoogoo has introduced a new service using geolocation technology known as MyRentals to create comprehensive search results from both local rental companies and other Indoogoo users.
The service was designed to help users easily locate and rent heavy equipment, providing access to a variety of listings from different sources. Indoogoo said users ranged from big name rental companies to smaller local traders.
“The My Rentals process is simple. After signing up for free at www.indoogoo.com, users looking to rent equipment can search for the machinery they need, specifying exactly where and when it is needed.
“The innovative geolocation technology compares these search criteria to all equipment near the given location, and the user is presented with a customised map showing all suitable machinery in this area,” the company said.
Potential customers can then contact the rental companies directly to request a quotation, the company said. Conversely, those looking to put their equipment up for rent can upload their listing and specify their location in order to be added to the map.
CEO and founder of Indoogoo Mark Turner said, “For the first time in the industry, professionals have a comprehensive, live database of local rental options, as well as a visual representation of where equipment can be found nearby.
“This simplifies the whole process and, because Indoogoo is a social network, contacting the rental companies is easier than ever – simply send a personal message or contact request to start the ball rolling.”
Mr Turner added, “With this service, everyone can be a renter. It gives all users the opportunity to hire out their equipment when it is not in use. Renting equipment should be straightforward – Indoogoo takes the stress out of finding the right equipment near you and, if you’re looking to hire out your equipment, you can be sure it will be seen by those who count.”
