About Murray's Tool Rental
It seems like we have been here forever. Well, since 1937, anyway. That was the year that Harry Murray, Sr. opened a Sunoco station on this corner of Main St. and James Rd.
Harry’s sons, Harry, Jr., and Paul took over and ran the station together until the late ’40s. At that point, Harry, Jr. bought out his brother’s interest in the business and began expansion. Harry, Jr. began fabricating and renting moving trailers. By the mid-1950s, he was a full-fledged member of the American Rental Association, offering a modest line of tools and equipment to people just like yourself.
In 1979, Harry, Jr. handed the keys to his daughter Patsy and son-in-law Terry Moore. Their son, Andy, joined the business after high school, and their daughter Wendy came on board to handle operational duties. And now some of the 5th generation Murray’s are putting in their time.
We are immensely proud to have been serving Columbus and surrounding areas for nearly 70 years. And we look forward to many more years to come.
