From 2005, when Adam Clark started his equipment rental business in a small one room office at a self-storage facility in Syracuse, until today, at their facility at 559 State Fair Blvd, he has focused upon providing quality rental equipment at reasonable prices. As a result, Clark is expanding their operation with the addition of a new office facility to compliment their 12 bay, 8000-square-foot shop and their 10,000-square-foot warehouse. More importantly, to serve the increased sales demand and the need for additional rental equipment the rental fleet has doubled in one year from 60 to 120 machines. Clark’s lineup includes dozers, backhoes, boom lifts and telehandler forklifts.
Clark recalled that one of the primary reasons that his company has been successful through the years is because of his expertise in working with contractors to help them when it comes to buying or renting equipment. Adam is able to reassure them that they are adding profit to their company’s bottom line. When customers need to develop a rental, sale or rental/purchase plan, he helps them come up with the best solution.
“Our three full time mechanics are busy refurbishing and prepping equipment for sale and rental,” he added. “That means a lot to our customers. Mechanics go over the equipment after we acquire it. They tear the machine apart and fix what needs fixing. When a customer picks it up it is ready to use. You can buy something from us and take it right to the job site without concern,” he said.
There are times when he needs to buy back a piece of equipment from one of his customers. When that happens, the negotiations typically run smoothly. That is because equipment offered by Clark Equipment is priced fairly when it is sold. That gives the customer a true picture of what the unit is actually worth.
Clark said that he credits his company’s growth over the past ten years to treating customers fairly. He keeps his word and he keeps his promises. By doing business in an honest way, customers have come to trust Clark for their equipment needs.
Not surprisingly, the staff has doubled in size as well. “We no longer serve just one city, state or region,” said Josh Amidon, director of marketing for Clark Equipment Rentals and Sales. “Not only are we shipping machines all over North America, but we also have customers in Asia, Australia, South America and Europe. We will be looking to double our sales this year, over our 2014 sales.” For more information about Clark Equipment, visit their facility at 559 State Fair Blvd, Syracuse, NY or visit their website at www.clarkrents.com.
