Welcome to Rental Management, the award-winning monthly magazine dedicated to the success of your equipment rental business. Chances are the cost of fuel will rise again with heavier demand during the summer, so we asked rental store owners and managers to tell us how they are coping with higher fuel costs. You can read about the many tips and advice in the June 2012 cover story. In addition, Michael Kneeland, president and CEO of United Rentals, spoke with Rental Management on May 17 about the progress of integrating United Rentals with RSC following the April 30 merger. We also have the latest quarterly forecast for equipment rental revenue from the ARA Rental Market Monitor™ and an exclusive interview with Scott Hazelton, a senior partner with IHS Global Insight. This issue also includes an interview with Brad Murphy, chief operating officer of Subaru Industrial Power Products; a feature story about Evans Equipment Co. in Glenwood, Iowa; counter and yard management stories about brush cutters and preventing heat-related illnesses as well as an article about how two party and special event equipment rental stores now make their furniture; coverage of new products seen at the National Restaurant Association Restaurant Hotel-Motel Show in Chicago; and much more.
