The Women of Taylor Rental of Petoskey
Rental companies are predominantly made of up men. Our store is no exception; most of our employees are male. However, the women that we have on staff are incredibly strong and intelligent people. There is a notion in male dominated industries that women cannot possibly know as much as their male counterparts and perhaps are not taken as seriously. We, the women of Taylor Rental, do rely on our male coworkers in many situations; however they rely on us just as much. Together, we make up a staff full of knowledge, and experiences that would not be as complete if it were only men in the industry. We all work together to make our business successful.
I, Angela, can lift and walk with an 8’ table over my head, as pictured below. Those tables weigh 80 pounds- wood table with metal legs, 30” wide and 8’ long. Can you do that? I will also look up Honda parts and start up a pressure washer for you. Marie grew up on a farm and can throw around racks of dishes that are a good 30 pounds a piece with almost no effort. She has driven around our Bobcat Loaders and Excavators too! Becky will load and unload wood boxes full of metal pipe all day. She also is in charge of our linen and dish facility, if that sounds easy, you haven’t seen our warehouses! Diana will work with customers on setting up reservations for generators, jack hammers and sanders – all guy stuff right? Wrong. As women in the rental industry we have to be able to do every job- including the traditional female role of working with brides and choosing linen and dishes and designing fashionable events. But, we also have to work with contractors, builders, and homeowners about dump trailers, tillers, Honda parts, nailers and staplers too.
When you call our shop you can be confident in the person who answers the phone. We will direct you to the most knowledgeable person regarding your question, whether it is a male or female. When we offer to help load or unload equipment be assured we Taylor Rental women can do it!
