In a business that revolves around customers completing jobs effectively, efficiently and safely, Relay Rental and Sales operates with a promise to provide reliable, top-quality products and rental equipment with friendly service.
“Our motto is: rent it, fix it, paint it and safety gear,” says manager Steve Rice. “We have everything a contractor or homeowner might need in those areas.”
In-store merchandise available for customers includes a selection of Diamond Products: blades for cutoff saws, abrasives for grinders and different concrete tools. The business also features a line of parts and accessories for power equipment and focuses on repairs, parts and service for small engines.
“We are an Echo, Toro and Lawn-Boy dealer,” explains Steve, “but we service and repair most makes and models of lawn and garden power equipment, chainsaws, water pumps and air compressors.”
The service department also provides maintenance and repairs for augers, generators, log splitters, power blowers and pressure washers.
In addition to sales, Relay rents out power equipment and a huge variety of name-brand professional tools to construction companies and homeowners. Items available include compaction equipment, pressure washers, pumps, fans and heaters; a mini-excavator, scissor lift, boom lift and bobcat; drills, sanders, saws and grinders; ladders, jacks and hoists; scaffolding, air compressors and generators.
For customers unfamiliar with using the equipment, experienced staff members are able to provide tips and support before it is signed out.
Safety is another important aspect of business at Relay. The company encourages homeowners and employers to “be smart, check out our safety department.”
A variety of items are on display and available, including safety vests, dust masks, ear protection, eye solutions, first-aid kits and respirators.
“We have a very knowledgeable staff to help customers with their projects,” says Steve. “Whether it’s for a home, a business or a construction company, we’ll go over everything with them if they need some education on how to run the equipment or use the tools.”
A detailed list of rental items is available online at relaytools.ca.
“We quite often carry more than what you might find on the website,” adds Steve. “If you don’t see something, we still might have it, so people should phone for availability, and for pricing.”
Delivery and pickup service is available for all rental equipment and machinery.
As a distributor for Cloverdale Paint, Relay carries a wide variety of paints for different applications, from industrial uses to satisfying requirements and needs of contractors and homeowners.
“We also carry all the sundries that go along with it,” says Steve, “including masking tapes, rollers, paintbrushes and strainers.”
For customers seeking specific items not regularly kept in stock, those products can be sourced and made available in most cases.
“We have opportunities to bring in paint, stain or other products if they are not carried in the store,” explains Steve. “We can check into it and bring them in or at least give customers some direction on where to find what they are looking for.”
A large selection of colour swatches is available to browse through to suit the needs of each customer.
