Headquartered at 6730 Roosevelt Ave, Middletown, Ohio 45005 [near Dayton and Cincinnati], Rentacomputer.com celebrates 25 years in the Technology Rental Industry. Rentacomputer.com works in over 1500 cities worldwide with hundreds of LOCAL installers and computer/av rental companies.

1987 Incorporation in Middletown, Ohio
The company legal name at the time was, CFR, Inc. DBA Rent-A-Computer. It was incorporated in Ohio by Rose Morgan its President and John Beagle its Vice President. First hired was Matthew Rye, formerly a Computer Salesman from Abacus Computers.

During it's first year in business, Rentacomputer was able to attract a customer base that included a major utility, a consumer products conglomerate, a candy company, business publications, defense contractors and more.

"Business grew 100 percent from year one to year two." Beagle said. "From year two to year three, we doubled again, then another double from year three to year four." There was one point in 1995 that Rentacomputer had done business with every major company in Ohio and Indiana.

Rent-A-Computer Evolves into Rentacomputer.com
Then in 1996, Rent-A-Computer registered what would become it's trade name. Rentacomputer.com. By 1999, Rent-A-Computer officially and legally changed its name to Rentacomputer.com. Rentacomputer.com began to work with highly qualified local vendors thoughout the United States, Canada and other cities worldwide. Rentacomputer.com partners with hundreds of local SMB Computer and AV Rental Companies. Each company is Ranked and Rated by the Tech Army Organization. Rentacomputer.com obtains wholesale due to high volume. Today many local companies depend on the Rentacomputer.com Tech Travel Agent network for a significant portion of their annual business. The advantage of this model was that equipment is maintained in the local markets, reducing shipping and handling costs. Also when large quantities or av and computer equipment are needed at an event, more than one partner company can be deployed.


Today, with the help with hundreds of partner companies, your Tech Travel Agent from Rentacomputer.com has access to the largest inventory of AV, Staging, Lighting and Computer equipment in the world. Your Tech Travel Agent from Rentacomputer.com is able to handle all your computer technology requirements, anywhere - for any length of time!

congratulations on your longevity!
wishing you all the best, and serious thank you for providing this venue.
I'm sure that you have been pressured to shut it down at times.
