Please call your local store directly for instructions on how we can still provide you with product and service, while limiting interactions. We are here to support you.

Rentals Suspended in Edmonton (Yellowhead Trail)
Our rental services are no longer being offered at our Edmonton – Yellowhead Trail location until further notice. Please call our Nisku store for all your rental needs.

Changes to Store Hours
The following stores have reduced their hours:

  • Nisku: Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, closed Saturday and Sunday
  • Medicine Hat: Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, closed Saturday and Sunday
  • Lethbridge: Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, closed Saturday and Sunday
  • All Saskatchewan and Manitoba locations will be open from 8 am to 5 pm, Mon-Fri and closed on weekends.

Increased Health and Safety Measures
Our number one concern is the health of our staff, customers and their families. Here are some additional health and safety measures being put in place at our locations:

  • Employees who can work from home are being encouraged to do so, to mitigate any chance of exposure.
  • Employees are being reminded about proper hygiene and hand sanitizer and cleansing wipes are being made readily available in store.
  • We have contacted our cleaners to ensure extra steps are taken so all stores are properly cleaned and disinfected.
  • We implemented a strict self-isolation policy for staff returning from travel, before it was mandated by the government. Any staff returning from another country must self-isolate for 14 days for any symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever, difficulty breathing.)
  • Our service teams are being extra vigilant in hand washing and using hand sanitizer when they have direct contact with customers' equipment.




Public Health Notice Regarding COVID-19

We'd like to remind you that some of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of disease are:

  • Washing your hands regularly. Wash your hands after using the restroom, touching your face, eating, drinking, coughing, or sneezing, and at regular intervals throughout the day. Use warm soapy water and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, or the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice. Alternatively, alcohol-based hand sanitizer is effective.
  • Following proper cough and sneeze hygiene. Cover your nose or mouth with a tissue or your elbow — not your hand — and discard the tissue immediately after
  • Staying at home if you are sick.
