About us

In 2019, Herc Rentals acquired United Truck Rental & Equipment Leasing, Inc.

In 1986, the late Edwin Lau started United Truck Rental & Equipment Leasing, Inc. to provide basic commercial to mid-capacity trucks and vans on the Island of Oahu, HI.

Since its inception, the locally-owned and operated company provided rental trucks and vans to a wide-variety of construction companies, engineering firms, delivery services businesses, and consumer requiring vehicles from its strategically and conveniently placed facility at 2804 Kilihau St., in the Mapunapuna business district.

In 2014, Edwin Lau’s son, Lindsey Lau, purchased the company as Kaalawai Holdings. Since taking over, Lau energized its Mapunapuna location by bringing in creative graphic street artists to celebrate Hawaii’s cultural lifestyle, updating the company’s fleet of vehicles to newer, fuel efficient, environmentally-friendly trucks, vans, and medium duty commercial vehicles – all while maintaining the company’s reputation of delivering customer service excellence.

Now, Herc Rentals Inc. – a premier, full-service equipment rental firm with more than 50 years of equipment rental expertise, roughly 4,900 employees and approximately 270 company-operated locations primarily in the United States and Canada – remains committed to continuing the excellent work, first-rate equipment and superior customer service the Lau family offered.

In addition to truck rentals, Herc Rentals serves a broad range of customer markets, including large and small companies in construction; industrial customers such as large industrial manufacturing plants, refineries and petrochemical operations; and other customers such as governmental entities and government contractors, disaster recovery and remediation firms, infrastructure, railroads, utility operators, individual homeowners, entertainment production companies, agricultural producers, special event management and facility management firms.

As a pioneer of the equipment rental industry, Herc Rentals continues to evolve and grow through technological innovations, expanded product offerings and value-added services and consultative solutions to support its customers’ projects safely, efficiently and effectively.
