Van’s was recently nominated for the Colorado Companies to Watch in 2015. “It was an honor to be nominated for our successes in the State of Colorado. Our growth is predicated solely on customer service and the outstanding team we have developed at Van’s”, states Kevin Moore, President.
Van’s Equipment began in 1989 as an opportunity to cater to the local contractors by renting low hour, late model fleet. We learned early on that it’s difficult to be all things to all people, so we stick to what we do well, dirt equipment. As we continued to maintain exceptional rental fleet, we had consistent requests to sell our equipment. This sales aspect has become an important driver of our business. We sell both new/used equipment and are a dealer for many major brands.
As a privately owned company, we have the ability to make decisions and provide a service level that is rarely seen in today’s marketplace. Whether its rentals or sales, you’ll appreciate the “customer focused culture” we live in, each and every day. Please enjoy our site, and contact us directly with questions.
