A-1 Coast Rentals Corporation was founded in 1945 under the name of Lomita Saw & Lawnmower Shop. The company repaired saws and lawnmowers and added locksmithing and key making. Within a year, the company acquired utility trailers and began renting these along with other equipment to contractors, industrial firms and homeowners. Demand was high and it has become a non-stop effort to keep up with the customers ever since. The company became A-1 Coast Rentals, A-1 Coast Temporary Services in 1963 with the acquisition of LeBleu Sanitation, a small company, which rented portable toilets. The company has expanded to become one of the top equipment suppliers in Southern California, not only portable toilets but also temporary power poles, fencing and job sheds. A-1 Coast sister companies, operating together, are able to furnish the greatest varieties of rental equipment services in the country. If not the largest, certainly one of the most diverse, including boomlifts, scissorlifts, forklifts, skiploaders and bobcats, excavators and trenchers, landscape equipment and pressure washers, to name but a small portion of the company;s inventory. A-1 Coast Rentals has a location in Torrance, Calif.
