It’s easy to get lulled by a low first dollar daily rental price.  But there can be a lot more to rental than just the daily rental price.  At NTR we have worked hard to add a value proposition to our rentals that you just won’t find at other rental businesses.  

“Contractors Daily Rate”

At NTR your rentals today are due by the close of business tomorrow. No more rushing around to beat the 24 hour clock.  Just return your daily rentals by close of business the following day for the standard 1 day rate.   We call this the Contractors Daily Rate, but anybody can use it!  Please note:  This program applies to in store pick-up only and does not apply to delivered equipment.

Weekend Rate Special

At Northside Tool Rental, we charge a 1 day rate for weekend rentals on our entire stock of inventory. This is available every weekend on everything we carry. Here’s how it works:

  • Pick up after 3 pm Friday
  • Return before 9 am Monday
  • Unlimited use on small equipment
  • 8 hour use on metered items

It’s that simple! At NTR, you have the equipment all weekend to do the work when it is convenient for you. No more stopping your work to rush your rental equipment back. You work at your pace over the entire weekend!

Weather Protection (weekly rentals or longer)

Don’t let unforeseen weather conditions run up your rental bill! At Northside Tool Rental, you are protected from inclement weather on your rentals of 1 week or longer. Here’s how it works:

If you encounter inclement weather during your rental of outdoor equipment, we will extend your rental by 1 day per week of rental at no additional charge. For example, if you rent a Bobcat for a week, and it rains, you can extend your rental to an 8th day to get your work done at no additional charge. If you rent for a month, you have 4 additional weather days to use if needed.

  • 1 Additional day per week’s rental of outdoor equipment
  • Up to 4 days per 4 week billing cycle
  • “Unused” additional days in any 4 week cycle do not carry forward
  • Standard Hour Meter Limits apply based on paid rental time
  • This program extends the rental period and does not offer a credit against rental fees
No Obligation Reservations

Call as far in advance as you would like and we’ll reserve your piece of equipment for the exact date and time you need it.  We require no pre-payment and charge no cancellation fee.  Just give us a call, tell us your name, and that’s it.  If you decide you don’t need it, just let us know.  It’s that simple.  Believe it or not, some of our biggest competitors STILL don’t take reservations!

Return to Any Location

Northside Tool Rental allows you to return any piece of rental equipment to any of our locations, regardless which location you rented from. We know our contractor customers are on the go and all over town. Often it’s not convenient to make it back to the location from which your rental originated. At NTR, we understand your needs and are here to make your rental experience as easy as possible. That’s why we’re the only rental company in Atlanta that accepts returns of our rental equipment at any branch, regardless of where the rental originated, at no charge to you.

Damage Protection Program

The Northside Tool Rental Damage Protection Program is meant to provide protection for the customer from unintentional damage or theft of rented equipment while in the customers’ possession. Damage Protection is not insurance.  In consideration of the additional charge paid by the customer, their responsibility for loss or damage to the equipment, as stated on the rental contract, shall be modified as follows:

1. Loss or Damage resulting from Theft or Vandalism

In the event the loss or damage to the Equipment is caused by theft or vandalism, Northside Tool Rental shall limit its claim against customer as follows:

  • Equipment was stored in a secured* location

Customer responsibility is limited to 50% of the current replacement cost of the equipment

  • Equipment was stored in a non-secured* location

Customer responsibility is limited to 90% of the current replacement cost of the equipment

In all cases of theft, coverage of any sort requires Customer to report the theft to the Company and to the police within 24 hours of discovery of the theft, and to provide a copy of the police report to the Company within 10 days of the date of the theft. Payment for Customer portion is due within 10 days of theft.

*Secured location shall mean the equipment was within a secured and locked gated environment or inside a secured building

2. Damage to Equipment while in customer possession:

Equipment will be considered damaged while in customer possession if it is returned in a materially different condition than that in which it was rented.   In the case of damage or breakage while in customer possession, the customer liability for repair shall be limited as follows:

  • No charge for repair costs of up to $250 or 10% of the original cost of the equipment, whichever is less.
  • Repair costs above $250 or 10% of the original cost of the equipment will be billed to the customer at ½ of the repair costs that exceed the $250/10% threshold.

Rental Purchase Option 

Northside Tool Rental is proud to offer a Rental Purchase Option on each rental contract. This program is designed to allow you the Customer to apply a certain percentage of the rental fees paid towards the purchase price of the equipment you have rented. We have found that often a customer may wish to purchase an item at the end of the rental period. This program will allow for a certain percentage of the rental fees to be applied towards the purchase price.

Rental inventory will carry a purchase price based upon a pre-determined depreciation schedule. Your rental coordinator can give you the current sale price on any item you rent. A percentage of rental fees paid over the most recent 3 months may be applied against the purchase price as follows:

Tier I         Cash Customers                  20%

Tier II        VIP Program Members          30%

Tier III      Charge Account Customers   40%
