Rent-E-Quip is central Virginia's premier wedding, party, and special event rental company. From the essentials to the exotic "If we don't have it, You don't need"


  Organic Marketing
  
   Hey friends! This is David Darby from Rent-E-Quip and I was hoping I could ask a quick favor of you today. As with many businesses in the hospitality and event industry this virus has hit us hard. Thankfully we are diversified with the general tool and construction side and are getting by, in fact we are looking forward to hiring back many of our furloughed employees in preparation for fall. In the meantime however marketing budgets have been cut to save costs. One of the biggest advantages we have is our organic and free word of mouth traffic as generated by local awards and review platforms such as Google. If it is not too much trouble we would be in your debt if you could help us spread the word of our services until we are able to party together again this fall. Thank you!

Virginia's Most Reviewed Rental Company

   We are blown away by your support on the most popular platforms such as Google and Facebook . We would also love to fill out our profiles on some of the smaller service discovery pages such as Richmond Weddings , WeddingWire , The Knot , and Yelp . Being a local business a majority of our business comes from word of mouth traffic and getting our name out there on these platforms will help us continue to grow and better serve our community. 

Oh, and did we mention you will get 5% off your next rental for each review?

(Discounts do not stack with anything other than our 3% back customer rewards program)
(Yelp does not qualify, they don't like promotions)
