Opening in 1958, Borgmeyer Rental began as a Rental “Tool Crib” and Hardware Store, serving the Ruskin Heights & Hickman Mills area. This section of Kansas City was a thriving suburban neighborhood that was home to many post-WWII, baby-boom families. Ruskin Heights was also rebuilding after the devastating tornado that tore through the area just a year prior to opening our doors.

Milton C. Borgmeyer Sr. founded the family business and through the years provided tools, hardware and helpful advice to the young families just getting their start. In the 1970's, Mary, Milton Jr., and John Borgmeyer began working after school and during summer vacation. Milton Jr. and John eventually started working full-time and in 1983 took over the operation of the business and continue to serve our customers' rental needs.

Today, our focus is serving homeowners, do-it-yourselfers and contractors. We offer a wide range of tools, including construction, remodeling, plumbing, painting and moving equipment. Along with our well maintained, professional equipment we offer our customers knowledgeable advice that comes from years in the tool rental business.

In addition to our line of equipment we offer fast, economical refilling of all types of propane cylinders and RV's, K-1 Water Clear Kerosene and One Way & Local Penske Truck Rentals. As our neighborhood has matured and surrounding communities have expanded, our convenient location just east of U.S. 71 Highway and west of Longview Lake, we’re proud to serve our surrounding neighbors such as Grandview, Lee’s Summit, Belton, Raymore and Peculiar.

So when a rental need arises, call or stop by. You’ll always find John or Milton behind the counter, ready to help with any project you may have! And of course, we’re open 6 days a week and many holidays for your convenience!
