CRS Contractors Rental Supply – so much more than just a contractor’s store
We’re a Canadian-owned tool rental and sales store. We have been in business for 16 years now and have 28 stores, all in Ontario. Our store here in Huntsville is our furthest northern location.
CRS, Contractors Rental Supply is a great name, but a little misleading at times. The name can fool the average home owner into believing that CRS is just a tool and machine rental company that caters to only contractors big and small.
We certainly are a company that does all that!
We offer a wide range of construction rental equipment that ranges from excavators that weigh 3500 lb to 30,000 lb, Dozers, backhoes, large and small generators, compaction equipment … I could keep going on, but I think you get it.
We also sell all types of concrete products, diamond and abrasive blades, fasteners, drainage tile, filter cloth, and once again …. I think you get it.
We are a certified safety training facility as well.
We offer training on such courses as “Working At Heights”, “Elevated Work Platform”, “Forklift Certification”, “Chainsaw Safety”, “Propane and Natural Gas Certification”, and “WHMIS”. We have two certified trainers in house including myself. We sell a wide range of safety products from work gloves, hard hats, eye and ear protection, first aid kits and of course all safety gear related to working at heights!
Let’s dive into what we offer to the average home owner now.
Here’s where it gets good!! Let’s start off with this, we’re an authorized Husqvarna dealer that sells and services Husqvarna products ranging from industry leading chain saws, leaf blowers, push and ride-on lawn mowers and weed and brush cutters. Let’s not forget our diverse selection of snow blowers. Great product. Great warranty. Great service.
We are a propane refilling station as well.
We have a bulk tank right in our yard. We offer refills on everything from BBQ tanks ( lowest price in town too) to 30, 33, 40 and 100 lb tanks as well. We even sell tanks.
The list keeps going.
We have an exceptionally good small engine mechanic working here, so we also offer small engine repairs, any make, any model! We also rent party items such as industrial BBQ’s, tables and chairs, 10’x10’ tents and my favorite, an old time popcorn maker!!
So, as you can see, we really are a “one stop shop”! You always hear about customer service is number one, well it is here. Customer service and customer satisfaction. I pride myself on knowing that my staff is the best in the business and they take pride in what they do. It’s just the way we do things here at CRS!
A little about me. I came to the Huntsville area in April 2008 after spending essentially all my life in Toronto. I was in the towing business for 22 years. I had enough of the rat race in Toronto and craved a simpler, quieter life. Muskoka called for me. I started at CRS that April in 2008. I was hired as the float/ truck driver there. I was on the road for three years until I was promoted to working on the counter doing inside sales. I was on the counter for three years when I was offered the position of outside sales. I did that for one year, and I was ultimately offered the position of branch manager in February of 2015. The position I still currently hold.
