United Rentals starts construction on new location

June 13, 2018

United Rentals is building a new location in north Sioux Falls.

The current site at 1201 W. 51st St. along Interstate 229 has great visibility, but the property isn’t the best setup for the construction equipment rental business, said Adrian Johnson, operations manager.

The new location at 5010 N. Ninth Ave. near the airport will have more shop and less office space for the staff of about 15, and more room outside for equipment.

The goal, of course, is to have most of the inventory rented out.

“If they all came back today, we’d be stacking them everywhere,” Johnson said.

The new site will have twice as many service bays, expanding from three to six.

With construction work underway, “we’re shooting for mid to late fall (to make the move) … before the snow flies,” Johnson said.

Lloyd Construction is serving as the general contractor for the $1.4 million project.

United Rentals has 1,100 stores across the U.S. It has been in Sioux Falls since 1999 when it purchased Elmen Rent All.
