About Action Rental

Action Rental is the leading supplier of light to medium construction and maintenance equipment in the Lehigh Valley and Wilmington DE. Action Rental offers rental and sales equipment as well as parts, repair services and delivery, providing full support of its clients' equipment needs. Action Rental serves three general market segments, construction, facility maintenance, and homeowners. Currently, the geographic trading area includes, but not limited to Lehigh and Northampton counties, which comprise the Lehigh Valley, with an approximate population of 300,000 people. This trading area is served by two locations, one on the west side of the city of Allentown, and the other in Bethlehem.


Action Rental was founded in 1967 by Mark Budick as A to Z Rentals in Allentown, PA, and the name was changed shortly thereafter to Action Rental Center. The original facility was a small office space in a strip mall on Cedar Crest Blvd on the West End of Allentown. The fledgling rental store served primarily homeowners with lawn and garden equipment, ladders, automotive tools, power tools, healthcare equipment, and a small selection of party goods. In 1972, Action Rental Center moved to its current location at 4535 Broadway in Allentown. In the years that followed, Action Rental Center began to develop a client base of contractors by adding more and larger commercial construction equipment as well as expanded its event rental division. Action Rental Center continued to grow in size developing a substantial commercial construction equipment rental trade as well as a commercial party and event rental business. This became an obvious odd marriage of two different types of clientele and products. It was decided to separate these now totally different businesses. In 1998, Action Party Rental opened its doors in a newly renovated building on the East side of Allentown. The separation of party rental from construction equipment allowed Action Rental to focus on our specific customer-base and clarify our image as a construction and industrial equipment rental source. In 2004, Action Rental opened its second location at 1007 Marshall Street Bethlehem. In 2015, Action Rental opened a third location in the Philadelphia region at 23 Industrial Highway Essington PA, just south of the Philadelphia International Airport.

Action Rental owes its success to its dedicated staff and the many great customers old and new that we look forward to serving daily.

Thank you for your continued support.
