Overabundance of Small Vendors

The North American power rental equipment market has witnessed prolific growth of rental competitors in the past couple of years, creating an additional tier of competition that significantly lacks the knowledge and quality of service provided by Tier I companies. From the customer standpoint, a single bad experience influences future decision making, thereby creating an illusion that experiences would be similar with all rental companies. To tackle this growing challenge head on, Tier I competitors are actively creating awareness and building their brand equity to help alleviate misconceptions and fears about rental companies among customers.

Understanding Customer Needs
In a service-oriented market such as the power rental equipment market, participants are required to understand customer needs and use that information to augment smooth customer interactions proactively. Such a process is even more valuable in a market landscape crowded by stringent regulations and financial constraints on spending. Some of the best ways of overcoming this challenge include providing well-suited rental packages by customer, increasing value-added offerings to raise the value of the relationship, and providing tangible and attractive discounts to faithful customers.
