About Point of Rental...

At Point of Rental, we value thinkers and tinkerers, helpers and sellers, and people who just plain make it fun to come in to work each day. We're an international company, with offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, but we're run like a family business - the meetings are few, and the bonding opportunities are genuine. And though we're in an industry based on the concept of taking items only as long as you need them before returning them, we're fiercely committed to our people. We work with every member of our staff to help them become the developer/salesperson/trainer/wizard they always wanted to be. Bring us your best. We'll make your best better.
