A New Tool

Forconstructionpros.com promises to facilitate peer interaction and provide the info you need to run your business.

Interaction with other rental business owners and managers who are willing to share their experiences can be one of the greatest learning tools available to industry professionals. Getting together with your peers at conferences, tradeshows and other programs gives you a chance to pick the brains of those who have gone through similar experiences, and might perhaps help you solve a problem or avoid mistakes others have made in the past.

But finding the time to get together with your peers when you need help most can be difficult, if not impossible. This time of year is especially challenging. Fortunately, the Internet can bring your peers right to your fingertips with the click of a few keys. Our new website, www.forconstructionpros.com, presents the perfect vehicle for this interaction.

www.Forconstructionpros.com provides peer-to-peer feedback on a 24/7 basis. The new site features a series of topic-related forums, called Tailgate Talk, that will enable you to share questions and ideas with other rental business operators who have been there/done that. Need an innovative solution to a problem? Just post the question to one of the forums and gain insights from your peers all across the country.

In addition to these forums, www.Forconstructionpros.com delivers the most complete collection of equipment updates, management tips and industry news available. The site supplies information on hundreds of products and offers dozens of stories on topics directly related to equipment rental.

To make your job even easier, www.Forconstructionpros.com is set up as a "one-stop shop", delivering the resources you need to effectively manage your business operations all under one umbrella. Sections of the site include:

  • Running Your Business - Information to help you effectively manage the shop and office, plus stay on top of safety and regulatory information and training.
