Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Center Tool Rental!
They are located in the increasingly thriving Delridge Triangle, where West Seattle meets White Center at Roxbury, at 9444 Delridge Way SW (map below).
Their phone is 206-762-5057, and they happen to be located right across the street from one of our original and ongoing sponsors, White Center Glass and Upholstery.
Center Tool Rental’s slogan is “We Rent Most Anything.”
And they’re not kidding â€“ from plumbing equipment, lawn and garden tools, to items for basic home improvements, there’s plenty to choose from.
“The list of what we have to rent out is pretty long,” owner Doug Stevens said. “Our rental book has 37 pages.”
“About 70% of our rentals are for around-the-house projects, and about 30% goes to light contractors,” Doug said.
But more than a healthy inventory, it’s the personal touch that Doug and his staff have to offer over big box competitors.
“My parents, Jack and Stella, started Center Tool Rental 35 years ago,” Doug said. “And I started working here when they first opened their doors. My parents were really good at the personal touch, asking people about their kids, and giving them advice on how to complete a project.
“Some of my current customers are the grandkids of Mom and Dad’s first customers.”
“I like to think I carry on the neighborly feel and that I impart helpful information to people who come in,” Doug said. “And you know, I generally learn something new every day.”
