Working in Alaska isn’t like working in other parts of the United States. It’s tough. Arctic tough. Conditions routinely drop below zero. You have to work around snow and ice. You’re always looking for gaps in the weather. But you still have to get your work done.
Equipment Source, Inc. (ESI) has a range of top-rated earth movers, heaters, generators and pumps available for rent at our Anchorage location that have been tried and tested in Alaska’s most challenging conditions. We carry a wide variety of equipment, including products from our own factory in Fairbanks and trusted Kubota and JCB machinery.
There are many reasons why you should source your equipment rentals from ESI in Anchorage, but for now we’re going to focus on three: trust, range and convenience.
Equipment You Can Trust
If you’re looking to rent equipment in Anchorage, who better to rent it from than an Alaskan company? ESI began when we started reconditioning heaters on the North Slope of Alaska back in 2000, and we’ve been connecting customers to the right equipment ever since.
We specialize in high-quality equipment for the oil, mining, construction and agriculture industries and we proudly serve customers who are working all around the state.
We’ve been to the Arctic. We know what Alaska’s toughest conditions are like, we know what it’s like to have a job that needs doing, and we know what it takes to succeed in these conditions. Our experience means we’re perfectly placed to source the best equipment, the kind of machinery you can depend on to work every time – even when it’s -40F outside.
At ESI, we take a lot of pride in manufacturing custom equipment locally in Fairbanks, but we know that isn’t the right answer for every customer. Sometimes, you need equipment for a specific purpose or short timeframe and it doesn’t make sense to buy your own.
Every product we recommend is based on the experiences our customers have in the field. This feedback loop means we only rent the most efficient and effective tools for the job.
Interested in our back story? Our guiding principle is that Arctic challenges require solutions that are built Arctic tough. Read more on our About page.
