About Us

The easiest way to manage your rented and owned assets.

Empowering You Empowers Us

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, the yardz founders saw a need. They realized that it took way too long to rent equipment, especially when searching for competitive rates. The other realization was that after years of renting with a trusted supplier, even so called negotiated “discounted rates” were not actually the lowest rates out there.

We saw a problem in the industry and wanted to change it. We wanted to empower the renter again. We wanted to see free market and choice. To give construction renters their time back, giving them 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.


We believe that when we put our renters first, we will be first for our renters.
