FORT MILL, S.C. – Home Depot has added eight stores to its equipment rental program, offering large equipment, tools, trucks, and trailer rentals.
Those stores are:
- Store #HD6959 in Bainbridge, Georgia
- Store #HD8537 in El Dorado, Arkansas
- Store #HD3106 in Helena, Montana
- Store #HD8531 in Palatka, Florida
- Store #HD4925 in West Bend, Wisconsin
- Store #HD6516 in Conroe, Texas

"Created to solve project and worksite challenges through a continuously improving rental experience at 1,100+ locations, The Home Depot Rental is taking its commitment to another level," the company wrote in a press release.
More rental centers are also on the way.
“Our business is evolving,” said Tony English, Senior Director, Merchandising at The Home Depot Rental. “As we observe trends in our business – and industry – we identified an opportunity to map Rental Centers against markets in which there is a growing need."
In addition to new Rental Centers, The Home Depot Rental also developed and launched a new concept in 2019 – Rental Operations Facilities enabling rental equipment assortment expansion for Pro consumers. While not open to the public, these large equipment facilities enabled fleet growth in many new and larger equipment classes – such as 80-foot boom lifts and 10,000-pound telehandlers – while also improving efficient fleet management which has allowed the business to better meet customers’ rental needs.
The first Rental Operations Facility was introduced in the Greater New Orleans market late last year and was quickly followed by a second location in the Los Angeles market this spring.
