For large companies with multiple projects nationwide, equipment rental procurement and logistics is a significant part of the project management and planning process. We recently interviewed Nick B., the Project Manager of one of our customers, a national stucco company. We wanted to find out what he values about BigRentz and why he chooses to source 100% of his company’s equipment rentals with us.
The company we interviewed specializes in all types of stucco and stone products, including hard stucco, synthetic stucco, stucco repair, and interior/exterior designer trim. Established in 1998, it serves both commercial and residential customers nationwide. Some of the company’s recent projects include a furniture store in Los Angeles, California, a Marriott Hotel in Romulus, Michigan, a Dunkin Donuts remodel in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and a Walmart in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
The company we interviewed has customers in every state across the U.S. In order to service its large volume of customers, Nick rents hundreds of pieces of rental equipment every year.
Prior to partnering with BigRentz, Nick would spend countless hours making dozens of phone calls to numerous suppliers to determine location, price, and equipment availability. Not only was this time-consuming, but it also created more work for the company’s accounting team. Many suppliers equated to countless different vendor codes, purchase orders, payment due dates, and sets of terms.
Proving to be a tedious and cumbersome process, Nick searched for an alternative solution to make his (and his accounting team’s) jobs easier.
The company has been a valued customer of BigRentz for two and a half years. When asked why he made the transition to BigRentz, Nick’s response was simple:
“BigRentz makes my job easier. Instead of making dozens of phone calls, I make one—and I get everything I need. The fact that you have locations all over is really helpful to our business.”
Aside from ease-of-use, we wanted to determine exactly how much time Nick saves by renting with BigRentz. It turns out Nick no longer spends the 5 hours he used to spend procuring rentals every week. This equates to approximately 250 hours of time saved every year on rental procurement. By outsourcing his rental logistics to BigRentz, Nick is able to spend more time focusing on his core business.
Since 2015, BigRentz has sourced equipment rentals for 411 of the company’s jobs, in 195 cities in 36 states nationwide. To fulfill these requests, BigRentz utilized a total of 68 unique suppliers in its network.
|All Years||411 jobs||68 suppliers|
|2017||207 jobs||38 suppliers|
|2016||194 jobs||46 suppliers|
|2015||4 jobs||4 suppliers|
