The right tools. The right advice. Since 1954.

About Us

A Family-Owned Business for Two Generations

Handyman Equipment Rental started in 1954 when current owner Brad Watson’s father, C. Merle Watson, started Handyman Rent-A-Trailer Co. in South Portland. From the beginning, Handyman has focused on a simple philosophy; providing The Right Tools and The Right Advice to homeowners, municipalities and contractors alike. That guiding principle influences everything we do today. We love what we do and are committed to the communities we serve.
 

The Right Tools

At Handyman, renting equipment isn’t a sideline, it’s our primary reason for being in business. Our equipment is meticulously maintained after every rental and we strive to keep our fleet modern and relevant as project methods evolve and new technologies emerge. We have the tools and equipment that make tough jobs easier and the results professional grade.
 

The Right Advice

With an average of more than 25-years of experience each, our staff will recommend the best piece of equipment for your particular needs and make sure that you  know how to operate it as safely and effectively as possible.
