Botten's moves to Mac Rental site
Alan and Shannon Botten launched the business two years ago, in partnership with Shannon’s parents, Richard and Johanne Edwards. They had previously operated Botten’s Radiators at the site, a building owned by Alan’s parents at 1053 N.E. Lafayette Ave.
They initially kept the radiator business going, but Alan said the industry had changed so much, he decided to dissolve it.
“It’s going to give us a chance to expand and grow,” Alan said of the large new quarters. “We’re trying to meet the needs of the community.”
The business rents everything from small hand tools to excavators and road graders. Many items are available on site, but larger ones may take a day or two to bring in.
“The community as a whole has been very supportive,” Alan said. He said the old location is now for rent.
Mac Rental was founded by the Hurl family in the mid-1970s. They sold it to Hertz in 2000.
