More About American Hazmat Rentals

Our family has been working together for over 20 years mainly serving the needs of our US Navy and supporting Shipyards within the San Diego area. We established our business in 1997 when Craig bought his first refrigerated container to rent to a local shipyard using contacts he acquired from his current job at the time as a commercial underwater diver.

With his first containers successfully rented out making about $300 a month, he quickly bought two more. His wife, Carolyn, came on board helping out in anyway she could while still being a stay-at-home mom with 6 kids. She managed the books and ran the office. Those three containers quickly turned into a hundred within the next couple of years. They had widened their portfolio of equipment to include dry storage and hazardous storage containers. Craigs two sons, Josh and Landon came into the company, working part time while in high school. Josh went on to refrigeration school and became the top Container Refrigeration Mechanic in all of the San Diego area. Landon received his class A license to help deliver the containers alongside his father. As the company grew, so did the employees to include Craig’s three daughters, three son in laws and family friend’s. As of 2018 we have grown into one of the largest women owned business within the San Diego area.

Hard work and long hours have rewarded us with a thriving company. There has been several times we have all put in a 12+ hour work day to fulfill an order. In the “good old days, working on 6 containers layed out in our backyard converting them from a standard ISO shipping container to the latest UL, NFPA and OSHA approved hazmat containment storage container. Now we operate out of our 2 acre facility in otay mesa, equipped with the latest tools for manufacturing top notch products available for rent to you.

We are constantly striving to outperform our competitors in the way of customer service and product quality. Our team has been building hazmat containers for over 15 years constantly improving the functionality, layout and looks. With the safety of our customers and their product at the forefront of our goals, we have developed over 20 different versions of hazmat lockers, each time perfecting our product. Now we have what we believe to be the best 4 hour rated and non-fire rated hazmat material container available for rent.
