About Us


AC&E Rentals Inc. was established in 1967 in Okemos, MI by Charles and Edna Withrow.  In 1989 AC&E Rentals was aquired by David Henderson who was the owner/operator of Helping Hand Rental and Storage (est. 1985) in Grand Ledge, MI.  After the aquisition Henderson phased out the Helping Hand Rentals name and operated both locations under the AC&E Rentals Inc.   Mr. Henderson retired and sold the business to his son, Ryan Henderson, in 2004.

Ryan has actively grown the company since 2012 by adding new equipment to it’s rental fleet and by year end 2017, has tripled the total equipment fleet.   Renting to homeowners, as well as small to mid-size contractors has always been our business model and niche in the marketplace and will continue to do so in the future.  The rental industry has changed significantly in the last 25 years, but we embrace the change and can’t wait for what tomorrow may bring.


Currently AC&E Rentals offers rentals to the Do-It-Yourself, contractor, Party/event, portable toilet and storage markets.  We strive to provide modern and well maintained equipment that is reliable and easy to use for each customer. In late 2011 we started a project to expand our storage facility by 20,000 square feet and successfully completed it in May of 2012.  This expansion added 143 units and  increased the total number of storage units to 353.  The new building houses standard storage lockers as well as 99 climate-controlled lockers.  A new secure access gate was also added during the expansion that allows customers 24-hour secure access to our facility.
