El Camino Rental and Grading, a division of Bilcan, Inc. started in 1975 and as of last year remained an individually, locally owned construction equipment and truck rental company. As a licensed contractor, our firm graded pads for homes and businesses throughout San Diego North County. In 1985, we discontinued our grading operations to focus solely on the construction tools and heavy equipment rental business. In the last 38 years we have provided equipment rental services to the construction, construction demolition, and industrial industries throughout San Diego County. We are one of the oldest independent construction equipment rental companies in San Diego with locations in Carlsbad, Vista and Oceanside.
In 2006 and 2007, El Camino Rental was listed as one of the 100 largest rental companies by volume in the United States by Rental Equipment Register. Since 1975, our company has grown to several San Diego locations that service Southern Riverside and Orange Counties to the border of Mexico.
As of January 1, 2007, due to the generosity of our owner, El Camino Rental became an employee owned company. We are very proud of the fact that our management and sales staff have over 200 years total or an average of over 26 years of experience each in the heavy construction equipment rental industry. Most of our management staff started in entry level positions in a rental yard. Our combined management and sales staff have worked for a wide range of rental firms throughout the country. Some have worked for the large, national rental companies; some have worked for regional or local rental companies. Many of us have worked together over the years at other construction equipment rental companies and most of us have spent the majority of our careers in the San Diego area and with El Camino Rental.
Our office staff, counter employees and yard personnel, as well as our mechanics and drivers are extremely qualified and many are industry veterans. We service, maintain and repair almost all of our own heavy equipment and construction tools. We currently own approximately 12 million dollars of rental equipment. Our biggest investment is in dirt and high reach equipment.
Although we are predominately a contractor oriented company, our customers range from homeowners and small contractors requesting bobcat rentals, truck or tractor rentals to the large corporations in Southern California. Our business has always been based on quality customer service and our strong relationships with our customers.
El Camino Rental has been a proud member of The California Rental Association (CRA) for numerous years. Our president serves on the Board of Directors and is president of the CRA-San Diego Chapter for the last 17 years.
