Durante Rentals was selected the new Takeuchi dealer for North New Jersey, the companies announced. The new territory will span 11 counties: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren.

The New Jersey-based dealership will offer sales, parts and service for the entire line of Takeuchi earthmoving equipment, including mini-excavators, skid-steer loaders, track loaders, and wheel loaders.

Durante’s New York-based dealership, New York Takeuchi, was recently named one of Takeuchi’s top dealerships in the United States, based on total market share.

“We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Takeuchi as the new dealer for Northern New Jersey,” said Chris Hamblet, vice president of NY-NJ Takeuchi Sales at Durante Rentals. “We’re confident we can duplicate the success we’ve had with our New York Takeuchi division as we’ll continue our winning formula of providing quality machines, honesty, integrity, and above all the highest level of customer service in the industry.”

For the next few months, the Northern New Jersey territory will be serviced by the Durante Rentals West Nyack store, which borders Northern New Jersey, as well as their Brooklyn store, which provides easy access via the Verrazano Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing.

“We are currently looking at strategic locations for our New Jersey-based dealership,” said John Durante, co-owner of Durante Rentals. “In the coming months, we plan to secure a prime location and assemble a professional and knowledgeable New Jersey-based sales team.”

The New Jersey location will also serve as Durante Rentals 10th rental store and its first in the state of New Jersey. It will offer a variety of construction rental equipment and tools including aerial lift equipment, material handling equipment, landscaping equipment, quality used equipment and more. Durante Rentals currently has eight New York-based rental centers: Brewster, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Carmel, Elmsford, Flushing, Mt. Vernon, and West Nyack. It also has a branch in Danbury, Conn.
