Air Compressor Rentals in Alabama & the Florida Panhandle

Compressed air is essential for powering pneumatic tools used in numerous commercial business applications. In the construction industry specifically, air compressors are used to operate drills, saws, jackhammers, nail guns and other pneumatic tools required to do the job. Air compressors also inflate forklifts, digger loader tires and hoist lifts, proving their versatility.

Businesses throughout Alabama and northwestern Florida turn to Thompson Rents for all their compressed air equipment needs. We're the rental division of Thompson Tractor, a leading heavy equipment solutions provider in the region for more than 60 years.

General Rental Equipment Usage and Maintenance Tips

When you rent equipment, you aren't responsible for continual maintenance like you would be if you owned the equipment, but you still need to take proper care of your rented machinery. Here are a few general usage and maintenance tips to ensure your team gets the most out of the rental and returns it in great condition:

  • Refer to the user manual at all times: If there's any uncertainty about how the equipment should be utilized, the user manual is your go-to reference. If you have questions the user manual can't answer, you can always reach out to our team for quick assistance.
  • Lubricate moving parts regularly: All long-term rentals should be maintained to improve their longevity, especially if they're used daily. Lubricate parts that require grease to keep the equipment in optimal working condition for the rental period.
  • Inspect the equipment and parts: Some pneumatic tool parts like cylinders, shafts, blades and clips can break due to wear and tear and should be inspected frequently for signs of visible damage. If your rental stops working for any reason, we can address the situation quickly to help you get back to work.
