Construction equipment rental companies rent construction equipment to contractors and retail customers for short and long periods of time.

Equipment Rental, known overseas as "hire," thrives in Europe, South America, South Africa and other parts of the globe, yet some of the largest are found in North America and Europe.

A number of the major manufacturers have specialist hire divisions or own stakes in hire companies.
