About Top Gunn Equipment Rentals, Inc.
In 1988, my two brothers & I were using trailers on weekends to haul furniture. With the trailers sitting idle all week, one of my brothers suggested we offer them for rent at the rate of $20 a day. Within a few weeks we were ready to give it a try. In a matter of days we had our first rental and a new business was born. The name of that company was Three Gunn Enterprises, Inc., and it eventually operated over 300 rental trailers at an average of 20 to 50 stores, from 1988 through 1995, similar to U-Haul except that we did not offer one-way rentals. Being spread out from San Antonio to Waco and Bastrop to Johnson City became unmanageable in many respects. We were operating through other businesses, and sharing the revenue gave us too little control over the quality and details of customer service.
In January 1996 all trailers were sold off and Top Gunn Equipment Rentals, Inc. was born. We had acquired our 1st Street location and offered $20 a day trailer rentals and vehicle inspections. Within a couple of months we slowly began acquiring different lines of rental equipment and our present business model was formed. In 2000, a north location on W. Anderson Lane became available and we opened our North Store. In 2012 having long out grown the north location, we were able to acquire a larger location directly across the street and now operate at 7920 Anderson Square, with a 10,000 sq. ft warehouse and showroom. It was a huge relief for us, our customers and employees. We finally had enough room to provide better, faster and more organized customer service.
Since 1996, we have grown from one employee to over 25 employees. Our product lines are expanding all the time and we are currently a dealer for Hustler Zero Turn Mowers, Stihl Outdoor Power Equipment, Top Hat Trailers, Kawasaki Engines and much more.
