About Us

Certified Rental®  is a division of Bramco, Inc., started in 2001, a separate rental division of Bramco focusing on the rental needs of our customers. Certified Rental provides short or long term rent-to-rent construction equipment and machinery with a fleet of over 1000 late model, low hour machines in a wide variety of classes. Certified customers are able to rent machinery with the most efficient technologies which enhance operation, give them am competitive edge and reduce their downtime.

Our large rental machine investment is fully supported by factory trained field service technicians. This allows the construction and machinery to be constantly monitored and ensure you have little to no downtime on your projects. Certified Rental is your valued partner for your projects.

Rental has been a part of our company history since 1966 when we started RESCO RENTS. Resco grew to a 16 branch operation throughout 8 states and was a top ten rental company in the United States. We sold Resco in 1997 to Prime. In 2001 we went back to our experience and success in the rental business and started Certified Rental®. 

Certified Rental® is a provider of short or long-term rent-to-rent construction equipment. Distribution of the rental fleet is done through the 16 branches of Bramco, which encompasses two equipment distributors, Brandeis Machinery & Supply Company and Power Equipment Company.

We are able to offer construction equipment and unmatched distributor service from locations throughout Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Certified Rental® is co-located within each of our distributor branches.

Our Family of Companies

Certified Rental® is a member of the Bramco family of heavy equipment sales, service and rental companies.

Brandeis Machinery and Supply Company was founded in the explosive urban and industrial growth of the 20th century. It was during this time there was huge demand for equipment that built skyscrapers, factories, houses, streets, stores and other public facilities. Brandeis offers  a diverse selection of construction, aggregate, road construction, scrap, recycling, port, mining, forestry, crane, demolition and earth moving equipment. These products are supported by an unmatched level of customer service from eight locations that cover Kentucky, Indiana, and portions of West Virginia.

Since its founding in 1908, Brandeis has been creating solutions for optimizing customer profits and minimizing downtime at construction sites, mines, and quarries. By giving customers what they need, when they need it, Brandeis remains a leading heavy equipment supplier and is committed to be your “Partner in Productivity.”

Throughout its history, Power Equipment Company has been dedicated to meeting the equipment and service needs of the construction, earthmoving, forestry, crane, material handling and processing and demolition industries. Power’s provides a diverse line of heavy equipment choices and the highest quality and responsive services, all delivered by knowledgeable, customer-focused and technically competent equipment professionals. These needs are supported from eight locations that cover Tennessee, Arkansas, northern Mississippi, and southwest Virginia.

Since its founding in 1946, Power has been a leading heavy equipment supplier and is committed to giving its customers “The Power to Perform.” We give our customers the Power to Perform by customizing solutions designed to maximize their equipment investments. Our customers’ reputations rely heavily on our customer service and the performance of our products. While we sell, service and rent equipment solutions, we never forget that ours is a people business.

Recognizing the crushing and screening needs of its customers throughout the Brandeis and Power regions, fueled the creation of Bramco-MPS. Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, top Bramco regions, are three of the top ten leading producing states for crushed stone, sand and gravel. To service this,  Bramco-MPS offers a full range of mobile and tracked crushing and screening equipment. Excellent manufacturer partners are only part of the equation, Bramco-MPS is a customer first full service provider. Specialized Bramco MPS sales and support staff means customers get knowledgeable, experienced people helping them making decisions on their material processing needs.

Bramco-MPS, while its own company within Bramco, serves as an extension of both Brandeis Machinery & Supply Company and Power Equipment Company’s products and services.
