Our History

Stephenson's Rental Services has been helping build Canada for 65 years.  We have helped our customers build infrastructure, hospitals, and schools that have improved our cities and towns. We have provided a wide array of jobs, we have supported and employed the trades and we have helped Canadian businesses and communities grow.  We pride ourselves on being a full-service tool and equipment rental and services provider.

Our focus on continuous improvement has allowed us to provide new and innovative equipment and solutions to ensure customers are completing projects safely and on time and on budget. We provide convenient and cost-effective training classes to ensure teams are kept safe and remain compliant with government safety regulations.  Our experience has taught us the importance of trust and integrity, which are pillars of our organization's existence. We constantly strive to help make renting easier by providing our customers the right tools, for the right amount of time, at the right price.

Our store network now includes a total of 38 stores in Ontario and 7 stores in Alberta and additional openings pending.  Our base of locations in the downtown Toronto core, in the western GTA, in the eastern corridor, and north of Toronto means that no other rental provider has more locations in Southern Ontario.
