After selling off his previous equipment rental company in 2014, our owner Rob Troxel wasn’t ready to retire. He and his daughter, Adriene Horn, put their heads together to develop a business plan for a different type of rental company – one with smaller equipment. They quickly learned that there was a need in the market for contractors to rent job site ready vehicles. Customized, upfitted pickups and flatbeds that arrived with toolboxes, ladder racks, etc. already installed so the trucks could be immediately put to work.
With just three employees, and a handful of trucks, PTR launched in summer of 2014. Since then, the company has been blessed with tremendous growth. PTR currently has a nationwide footprint, over 100 employees, and works with many of the top construction and renewables contractors in the country.
At PTR, we provide customers with the monthly 4×4 Truck, Utility Trailer, UTV, and Equipment Rentals you need to keep your crews working. Located out of Northeast Indiana, we are a family-owned and operated business with over 25 years of equipment rental experience. Our job is to give you the type of rental equipment you want, when you want it, and to make the process as seamless as possible. We would love to learn more about you and your industry specific needs.
Our work truck, trailer, and UTV rental inventory is readily available to be shipped anywhere in the United States. From New York City to Chicago to Los Angeles, we serve cities in all fifty of the United States.
Most of our truck rentals are latest model Laramie (or equivalent) trim level. This means you get the comfort and convenience of power towing package, spray-on bed liner, back up camera, satellite radio, heated and air-conditioned seats, side-steps, keyless entry, and more. Our monthly pickup truck rentals can be customized with additional add-ons for your rental truck needs.
