Do You Want to Create The Garden of your Dreams?

Flowerbeds and flowerpots

Gardening is a relaxing activity that keeps you moving and feeling great. If you are thinking about starting a garden of your own, but you don’t have the tools, then consider renting the tools you need. Lawn and garden tool rentals give you the opportunity to cultivate your own garden using all the right tools. Equipment rentals can complete your gardening plans so you can get a great start on your horticultural aspirations:

Get Tools without The Cost

Why should you have to shell out a ton of money for tools that you do not need to use all the time? Renting your tools gives you what you need without depleting your savings. Whether you need a landscape rake or a tractor rental, you can use it and give it back when you are done without spending a fortune.

Get Access to the Best Tools

Hardware stores are so full of different types of equipment and tools that it makes it almost impossible to decide which is best. By renting equipment, like a lawn aerator, you gain access to a high-quality piece of equipment without spending hours in the store trying to pick the best one. You can enjoy all the benefits of gardening without the stress of shopping for tools.

Get a Tool As You Need It

Renting tools gives you the opportunity to use something that you might not have known you needed. When you start your gardening project, you can decide what tools will make the job easier and immediately gain access to them. In order to be successful with your new gardening hobby, however, you may need certain tools that you never thought of before. Renting tools gives you access to the tools you need when you need them. This way, you can provide the best care for your plants.

Rent everything you need to create a beautiful garden from A-1 Equipment Rental Center. We know that buying tools gets expensive, which is why we provide the equipment you need to complete any project. Call (650) 369-2992 today to start ordering the equipment you need for your gardening dreams.

Essential Equipment for Any Street Closure

Road dead end

Without the proper equipment, a street closure can cause major issues with traffic. Poorly marked street closures can cause delays and accidents. If you are in charge of closing a street for any reason, the equipment rental that you choose is very important. Make sure to include the following equipment with your street closure to keep traffic moving safely:


Clearly marking where the street closure starts and ends will keep traffic moving as smoothly as possible. Wood and steel barricades make it very obvious that a part of the street is closed off. With the bright orange and white paint, these barricades can be seen from far away, efficiently alerting drivers to the change in traffic.

Barricade Lamps

Barricade lamps give you the chance to make the street closure even more noticeable. With a ninety degree angle lens, a barricade lamp gives a great amount of visibility. These lamps automatically turn off when the sun is too bright. Barricade lamps meet the standards of both the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE).

Light Board

Delineate where traffic should move to get around the street closure with a light board. Using solar power, this arrow board helps prevent a major traffic jam during the closure. Since the batteries are charged with solar power, you can rest assured that it is always working. Light boards are easy to use and provide an important addition to your street closure tool rentals.

A-1 Equipment Rental Center keeps Northern California equipped with all the tool, truck, tractor, and trailer rentals that you need. Whether you are planning a street closure, a huge construction project, or a move, our equipment rentals give you the necessary help.

Upgrades You May Need to Improve Your Home's Energy Efficiency

Worker Installing Attic Insulation

As energy prices continue to rise, many homeowners are looking for effective DIY home projects that can improve their home’s use of energy.  While many projects require little more than what you have in your toolbox at home, some require power equipment and professional tools.  Read through this list to learn what areas of your home could be more energy-efficient and what tools you’ll need to rent to improve these areas:

Replacing Windows

If you’re looking for the reason why your heating and cooling bills continue to remain high, look no further than your windows.  The type of windows you have is a large component of your home’s energy efficiency.  You will most likely need an air nailer, a drill, hammers, and other measurement tools to replace your window with a more energy-efficient material.  Depending on the height of the window, you may also want to rent a scaffold.

Improving Insulation

One of the most effective ways to improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home is to seal and insulate the outer walls, ceilings, doors, and floors.  Insulation blocks warm air from leaving your home in winter and entering during the summer.  You’ll need a caulking gun or a tool to place spray foam on the desired areas.  You might also want to consider installing a storm door or storm windows, which will require a power drill, hacksaw, pliers, level, and other basic tools. 

Repairing Roof

A roof is another part of the home that tends to lower energy efficiency.  If you’re installing better quality shingles, you must rent a roofing nailer or a high-grade stapler.  You might also want to rent a ladder to safely reach the roof.  Cutters and other equipment will help you remove inadequate roofing.

Discuss your energy-efficient project with the rental specialists at A-1 Equipment Rental Center.  We offer the tools you need to get the job done, including equipment, tractor, truck, and tool rental.  Contact us today online or by calling (650) 369-2992.
