What Is Equipter?
Equipter is a roofing equipment company made by and for roofers.
While running his own roofing company, Aaron Beiler wanted to revolutionize the debris removal process. He then created the Equipter RB4000: a drivable, lightweight, and compact dump trailer that’s perfect for holding discarded roofing materials.
Today, you can rent or buy the RB4000 across the nation.
Equipter has expanded into smaller portable dumpsters, cranes, chutes, and other products that make roofing cleanup easier and the work site cleaner.
Roofers love Equipter. They especially appreciate how easy it is to use. They can quickly learn how to use Equipter and then train employees.
One Equipter user, Paul Biniek of Biniek Specialty Contractors, says the Equipter is “very self-explanatory. Somebody could start using this unit in the morning, and by afternoon, they’ll be pretty good at it.”
With Equipter’s wide range of roofing equipment, they have something to benefit every roofing business.
7 Huge Advantages of Using Equipter Products
Save Time & Increase Productivity
How many labor hours does your crew spend double- and triple-handling shingles, nails, and other debris? If the answer is too many, then it’s time to change the way you do roofs.
Cutting down on how long tasks take is one of the best things you can do for your business.
Without an Equipter, your teams may be throwing old shingles and nails off the roof as they work. Then at the end of the day, a few crew members pick up everything and put it in the trash.
But an Equipter makes debris removal fast and efficient. In fact, in a 2018–2019 survey by Equipter, 91.67% of customers said their company is able to do more work with more efficient crews.
Use the Equipter RB4000 in just four easy steps:
- Tow the unit to the job site.
- When you get onsite, use the Equipter’s gas-powered engine to drive and position it virtually anywhere on the property, including right next to the building.
- Raise the container using the hydraulic 12-foot lift so you can place it just off the roofline.
- Once the container is full, just drive the RB4000 to the dumpster and use the unit’s hydraulic tailgate to dump out the debris.
Luis De León of Quality Management and Building Services says, “Bringing [20 squares] of debris takes us 10 minutes, and it used to take us two or two and a half hours.”
That’s about 12–15 times faster than cleaning up the site by hand!
Keep Properties Pristine
Protecting the properties you work on will help you take your roofing business to the next level. A mess-free job site shows professionalism and instills confidence in your work.
But keeping things clean can be difficult when roofing materials are constantly falling off the roof.
Using the Equipter RB4000 and roof chutes ensures minimal damage to landscaping, so you don’t have to pay to replace damaged shrubs.
Plus, homeowners hate having ruts in their yard. They want a clean lawn, not tire tracks left in the grass. The Equipter’s lightweight, wide tires prevent grass damage.
Equipter user Philip Jordan of Clean Cut Roofing says the Equipter helps “eliminate the risk of debris falling behind the bushes and on sidewalks for our customers to keep them safe and to keep their landscaping in great order.”
If you want to keep the job site in tip-top shape while you work, the RB4000 is the perfect solution.
Give Your Company a Competitive Edge
Every roofing company can use a competitive advantage to grow their business. Getting into hard-to-reach areas will give you that edge.
When speaking about the RB4000, Daniel Young of Kingdom Roofing says, “I don’t know another piece of equipment that could get into this space and do the work that we need it to do.”
The Equipter is more than just getting into tricky areas; it’s a sign of your professionalism.
When you invest in professional equipment, customers see you as more credible. They can tell you understand your industry, and they’ll want to work with you.
Stand out for all the right reasons and capture more customer attention with Equipter.
Create Branding Opportunities
One subtle benefit of having an Equipter product is branding.
Many companies put their logos or slogans on their Equipter to promote their brand. Jestin Hoss at Hoss Roofing and General Contracting says the Equipter is “a beautiful piece of machinery. We’ve wrapped it very well, and it’s brought a lot of business just on drive-by traffic.”
If you’re going to take the RB4000 to the job site, brand it as your own. Effortlessly spread awareness with a decal or wrap and get more future customers.
Keep Your Employees Happy
Show your employees you care by getting equipment that simplifies their job.
The Equipter takes on more of the physical work, so your team has less heavy labor and less risk of injury.
Beyond reducing the risk of injury, an Equipter can boost team morale and lead to better employee retention rates. Shorter workdays for your team attract and retain quality roofers.
Additionally, the Equipter can lift materials, so your roofing contractors can put their energy towards working on the roof itself.
Paul Biniek mentioned, “You want your workforce to be happy and have good morale. That’s the number one thing the Equipter will do for your crews.”
Keep your crews happy by introducing the Equipter into your roofing process.
Lower Your Project Costs
The Equipter speeds up the roofing process, resulting in lower project costs. You’ll need fewer people to get the same amount of work done.
And using professional-level roofing equipment means you can put your resources towards other roofing activities. Simply train your clean-up crew to start working on the roof instead of picking up debris.
The extra number of people combined with the streamlined roofing process translates to fewer hours on the job.
“In one day, we did the job that took us four days, so that’s going to save us on the cost of labor… Everything’s going to go faster, and I’m going to feel better at the end of the day,” says Michael Holtzman of Git R Done Contracting.
The RB4000 not only makes your roofing process easier but cheaper.
Provide Customers with an Amazing Experience
Customers are the lifeblood of your roofing business. One positive experience with your company could lead to a lifetime of services and referrals.
But many homeowners are worried the roofing company will litter their property with old shingles, material packaging, old nails, and other debris. Or, worse, they fear falling debris will damage their landscaping or exterior HVAC units.
Those hazards can be hard to avoid if you’re relying on nothing more than tarps, boards, or street-side trailers.
With the Equipter, you provide faster job times, cleaner yards, and safer conditions for your customers. The equipment improves the customer experience, so more homeowners love your work.
When your customer has a good experience, they’ll want to leave positive reviews and give word-of-mouth referrals.
Daniel Young attests to how much the Equipter can help bring in customer recommendations: “Pre-Equipter, our average recommendation rate was in the mid-80s, about 86–87%. And tracking the last two quarters, we are well over 90%, so we have greatly increased our recommendation rate, and I do 100% give credit to Equipter.”
