Empowering You – Empowers Us
The easiest way to manage your
rented and owned assets.
Who We Are
We are new school tech with old school values. We promise to provide you with world-class service while giving you the easiest way to manage your rented and owned assets.
After working in the construction and equipment rental industries, we saw a need. It was a need to solve inefficiency and give people peace of mind in managing equipment. We realized that it took longer than it should to rent equipment… and once they were rented it was difficult to track them all from multiple suppliers. Adding owned equipment to the mix, things just got messy, especially when trying to solve it with spreadsheets and whiteboards.
As founders wanting to make life easier for our industry, we saw a problem and wanted to solve it. We wanted to empower contractors and equipment managers and make things simple again.
Our goal was to give construction renters and asset managers their time back and technology that not only benefited their work day, but saved money for their businesses and looked out for their bottom line.
Yardz believes in the sweat, grit, concrete and steel that this country was built on. We chose “Red, White and Blue” as our colors because it is in the core of who we are as people and a company. It is our traditional values that put our customers first, and the integrity we demand of ourselves drives how we do business.
We look forward to the chance to show you firsthand.
