BigRentz and Construction Equipment Rentals Partner to Help Pow! Wow! Worcester Paint the Town
IRVINE, Ca. – August 29, 2017 – BigRentz, the largest rental logistics company, and Rhode Island-based Construction Equipment Rentals, Inc. joined forces to help Pow! Wow! Worcester with its annual international art and mural festival in Worcester, Ma. BigRentz and CER worked with festival organizers to deliver 23 boom and scissor lifts to five different sites across the city.
The festival kicked off on August 25, 2017 at Elm Park Community School where artists from around the world converged to paint 14 murals. The event runs through September 2, 2017 and will feature a variety of community activities, artist competitions and a fundraiser for local art programs. Approximately 29 murals will be completed throughout the city, including a wall at Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center that measures 240 feet across and 33 feet high
“This is our first year involved with Pow! Wow!, and it’s the type of event that BigRentz and our large network of rental suppliers can really rally behind,” said Brian Weaver, Vice President of Sales, of BigRentz. “What Pow! Wow! and the WCC are providing the Worcester community is a valuable way to promote art and unite a community. Our involvement in terms of providing discounted and free equipment and services is a small way that we can help make sure the event is successful. We look forward to building an ongoing relationship with Pow! Wow!.”
Jessica Walsh, Co-Director of POW! WOW! Worcester said, “Our festival is dependent on the support of artists, volunteers and businesses like BigRentz and CER. Their equipment and services allow our artists to safely and successfully create their works of art, which will be enjoyed by our community for many years to come.”

“CER is always looking for ways to help our local communities, so when BigRentz approached us with this opportunity, it was an easy decision to get involved,” stated Mike Travis, general manager of CER. “With so many moving parts to the festival, it was important for us to make sure that event organizers didn’t have to worry about whether or not they had the necessary equipment or if their equipment was going to be delivered. With the BigRentz’ logistics help, Pow! Wow! received all the equipment and coordination at a great price.”
