About Interstate Rentals
Interstate Rentals was founded in 1953 by Joseph A. Dennis. Initially, the store was a converted ice cream parlor consisting of about 1,000 square feet. Soon, adjacent land was acquired and more space added. From 1953 until 1983, the business consisted solely of renting equipment and tools to contractors and homeowners.
In 1983, the company sought to expand the business and so implemented the Special Events Division, which involved the rental of items used in the staging of social and business functions. As this segment of Interstate grew, it became apparent that the present location could not accommodate both departments. This inevitably prompted the company to investigate the possibility of relocating the equipment division to a larger and more accessible lot.
On November 4, 1996, Interstate Rentals Equipment Division opened a new state-of-the-art store in Delta Park across from Portland Meadows. Equipped with 10,000 square feet of warehouse space on 2.5 acres, this location has greatly improved the operation of the business, and we eagerly anticipate that it will facilitate future growth. Ultimately, we have you, the customer, to thank for this monumental achievement.
We’re looking forward to meeting all of your equipment rentals needs in the
