This is Durante Rentals’ ninth location overall, third in New York City, and their second to open in the past 90 days, with the other being their Danbury, Connecticut, store.
“We are excited and more importantly, so are the local contractors, as there aren’t many equipment and tool rental choices in this particular area of Brooklyn,” Anthony Durante, co-founder of Durante Rentals, says. “With its central location and proximity to the city, we are now better equipped to service our large Manhattan customer base as well.”
The Brooklyn store will offer a variety of tools and equipment for construction, industrial, landscape and homebuilding applications. It will also offer boom lifts, light towers, air compressors, forklifts, mini excavators, generators, scissor lifts and more. Its indoor showroom features chainsaws, power cutters, safety gear, diamond blades, traffic safety products, accessories and more.
“Over the past few years, Brooklyn has seen an unprecedented renaissance that is still ongoing. This area is part of a more recent transformation and the initial feedback from the local community has been overwhelmingly positive,” John Durante, co-founder of Durante Rentals, says. “Many have commented that our yellow, white and black color scheme add some much-needed color and vibrancy to the area.”
This location will also serve as one of its Takeuchi earth moving equipment showrooms as Durante is the Takeuchi dealer (New York Takeuchi) for the five boroughs of New York, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam Counties, offering mini excavators, track loaders, skid steers and wheel loaders for retail.
Durante Rentals Brooklyn will be open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
