Chris, our coffee guy!

If you are wondering who this is, this is our coffee guy, Chris. He dutifully comes by every morning in his coffee truck and re-energizes us with his awesome coffee. We decided to give him a Durante Rentals t-shirt and he happily put it on for us (I mean who wouldn't? They look awesome!). And now we get free advertising! This picture was taken by a Picone employee when Chris came by their job site to sell coffee.

Showroom Renovations

As part of the recent renovations, we've also made some changes to our showroom. We waxed the floors over the weekend and now they look brand new! And if you look closely you can even see the reflection of the equipment on the floor! Also, we added some shelving to the walls in order to better display some of our equipment. Come down to Durante Rentals at our Queens location and have a look for yourself!

New Desks!

Recently, there have been a lot of improvements going on at our Queens location office. With the addition of a couple new employees we've added some brand new mahogany desks to the office! Space is limited so it took quite a bit of trial and error to finally got the furniture arrangement to make everything fit but now we have everything just the way we like it :)

IHI Mini Excavator

Check it out! One of our customers sent us this picture of our IHI mini excavator in action! The IHI mini excavator is exceptional for working in a confined place (like this basement). IHI Mini Excavators offer unsurpassed operator comfort with more spacious cabs, better view and sight lines, lower noise levels and smooth, easy operator controls that give the operator more leg room by moving all the auxiliary controls to the joystick.

New Artwork!

To spice up our workplace, we decided to do some decorating and added some nice artwork to our walls. We took some pictures of a skid steer and had them turned into canvas art. What do you guys think?

Mobilair M50

Take a moment, and look at this picture of one of our compressors, taken by a customer on their job site! Notice the composition and layers, the file details you notice the more you look. The bright yellow contrasts the background, as if the compressor is drawing in your attention to tell you a story.
If you have any pictures of our equipment, send it to us and we'll showcase it! Send it to

If you're interested in buying or renting a compressor, we highly recommend the Kaeser brand, and it's not just because they're yellow. Give us a call at 718 697 6969 for more information!
