Connecting you to rental yards across Georgia for multiple quotes, best rate transparency and freedom of choice on construction rentals. Yardz is an online reservation software for the construction rental industry allowing renters to compare multiple quotes and secure rentals direct with suppliers.
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.
They saw a problem in the industry and wanted to change it. They wanted to empower the renter again. They 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. They chose “Red, White and Blue” as their colors because it is in the core of who they are as people and a company. It is their traditional values that put our customers first, and the integrity they demand of themselves drives how they do business.
