We believe we have made a huge impact in this valley with our community support, and we know that will continue under the Sunbelt Rentals name.

“All of our stores will still have the amazing staff that you know and love, and the service will continue to be second-to-none. With an even larger equipment selection and eight branches in the Okanagan from Kamloops to Oliver, the options for customers are endless. Looking forward to a bright future.”
