Rental powerhouse United Rentals Inc. announced that the company will host its second annual Used Equipment Sale on December 12. The sale will be staged at more than 650 participating branches in North America, giving buyers the opportunity to acquire quality equipment from a reputable supplier at a fraction of its original cost.

The company’s equipment specialists will be on hand at each branch to answer questions about applications and safe operation. Additional features of interest include:

  • More than 20,000 items offered for sale in the U.S. and Canada, in categories ranging from boom lifts, scissor lifts, backhoes, dozers and trenchers, to mixers, air tools, compressors, power tools and more.
  • Purchased direct from top-tier manufacturers, including Multiquip, JLG, Genie and Case, and utilized exclusively in the company's rental fleet, unless otherwise specified.
  • Maintained and inspected by United Rentals service technicians prior to sale.

  • Facilitated by financing options made available through an arrangement with Captive Capital, including flexible terms and payment plans.
  • Timed to give buyers the benefit of IRS Section 179: 100 percent deduction on 2013 taxes for qualified equipment bought before year-end. Available with a properly structured lease or loan, or outright purchase (see your qualified tax advisor or CPA).
