We have lowered the local delivery fee on our 3/4 tonne pick-up truck from $30 to $15.
We hope that by lowering our round-trip rate in half – from $60 to $30 – it will be more feasible for everyone to get the rental tool they need, regardless of what they drive!
Please note that we cannot deliver any bulk materials (such as gravel or soil) with this truck, and this rate does not apply to delivery of heavy equipment, such as skid-steer loaders, mini-excavators, or scissor lifts.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us at (250) 758-2401.
