|Review by DAN KAPLAN
AED's Rental 2006 is a valuable source of information on rental. It contains important data that can help you examine your rental business. After reviewing this book, I would recommend it to any dealer with a rental operation, to any dealer contemplating entering rental and to equipment manufacturers. Rental companies that are interested in how dealers are expanding into rental and in what end users say about their rental preferences should also find the book very helpful.
A few of the ways you can use this book:
Equipment rental continues to grow and competition for rental dollars is fierce. There is significant new research in this book that will help you compete and understand some of the fundamentals of rental. You might wind up being a better competitor. It is a must read for manufacturers, dealers and rental companies.
