Herc Rentals officially opened at 2005 SW Haverhill Road in El Dorado on June 5. After the company won a contract with HollyFrontier around May this year, they decided to establish a presence in El Dorado. Herc Rentals services are also available to the general public.

"We rent pretty much anything you can think of. You know, we have small jackhammer-like equipment and stuff like that to massive, earth-moving equipment. So, really, we can rent basically anything you'd need," Parker Hodges, sales coordinator at Herc Rentals, said.

The El Dorado location is currently the only Herc Rentals branch in Kansas. Eventually, the branch would like to get business from Augusta, Wichita and the surrounding areas. Herc Rentals, Inc. is headquartered in Bonita Springs, Fla.

"Hopefully, if they see we do well here, they may open up more locations throughout Kansas," Hodges said.

Herc Rentals is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Yet, the company is also a 24/7 service if people need to reach Herc Rentals after hours. The phone number for normal business hours and after-hours is 316-321-1315. The company has a special where people can rent equipment on Friday, bring it back on Monday and only pay a one-day charge.

Herc Rentals is now hiring for assistant manager and yard worker positions. Those interested can apply online.
