Working Smarter

One phrase I hear often in the business world is “working smarter.” It’s now a common phrase used by brands and those working in business, but what does it really mean? After working in the industry for 20 years I can tell you this: when you own equipment and have it sitting idle it’s stressful and when you’re looking to rent equipment you almost always need it immediately.

Redefining “Smart”

We started DOZR to solve a real-life problem that we were facing ourselves as contractors. Working “smarter” to us isn’t just something we say; it’s something we do. But what does working smarter really mean? It means having one spot to go to every time you need equipment and knowing that one place will deliver what you need. It means saying goodbye to multiple calls, emails and texts, and saying hello to all the information you need in one place. Working smarter means taking full control of your business and empowering yourself as a business owner by making decisions with confidence.

Rent with Confidence. Rent The Smart Way.

That is our goal at DOZR: to help you run your business more efficiently. Whether you’re an equipment owner looking to become a rental partner or a contractor looking to rent equipment, DOZR puts the power back in your hands.

At DOZR we have taken the concept of “working smarter” quite literally. After submitting your equipment search, our intelligent engine locates and predicts available machines across North America and delivers the best package for your needs. Pricing is available instantly and displays equipment based on proximity, pricing and supplier details. We understand the challenges with equipment because we have been there and we’re on a mission to make the lives of contractors easier. We’ve developed the world’s first comprehensive smart search for the online rental of heavy equipment to help you truly work smarter.

While on vacation–booked through the sharing economy–Kevin and his family started discussing a challenge that he and many others in the industry has discovered: how do we make our equipment work for us in the off season? Within weeks DOZR was born. Kevin, Tim Forestell, and Erin Stephenson founded DOZR in 2015.
