My name is Joe Hendrix and I’m an accountant in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. I’ve had a small accounting firm in town for ten years and for nine of those years, I’ve been a Rentacomputer.com customer. Let me tell you a little bit more about me and why I would recommend Rentacomputer.com to anyone who is need of computer rentals for tax season.
I was 33 when I started my own business. After working for a major national company for five years, I knew that it was time to branch out on my own and offer something the national company couldn’t: customer service. Don’t get me wrong, my co-workers and I prepared taxes and helped our customers with a smile – most of us anyway – but because the company was so big, ultimately, everyone was just a number or more money coming into the company. I got into accounting because I wanted to help people, not because of the money.
Starting your own business at 33, when you’ve got a wife, two young kids, and a mortgage can be pretty scary. After I’d rented the building and hired two employees, I was basically broke. I couldn’t afford a lot of office equipment, so my two employees shared a computer and printer, and we all did a lot of work from our homes. We didn’t even have a copy machine. It was a nightmare and once that first tax season was over, I swore I’d find a solution before the next year.
Someone suggested renting equipment for the office, but I had no idea you could even do such a thing. However, I did a quick internet search for “copier rentals” and saw that you can indeed rent copiers. Rentacomputer.com was at the top of the search, so I knew it had to be a good company. I was absolutely right.
After one quick phone call, not only were they able to answer my questions about renting a copier, they were able to suggest other technology I could rent for my business and they were extremely friendly. As I mentioned, customer service is very important to me.
I ended up renting a copier from Rentacomputer.com and it was delivered to my office the next day, set-up so we could use it immediately, and anytime we had a problem with it, a technician came out to fix it. Eventually, as my business grew, I found myself using Rentacomputer.com for other needs. My office has grown from two employees to ten employees, and even then, when tax season comes around each year, I find myself having to hire several temps. I learned the hard way that every employee needs their own computer, so, when the temps start each year, I rent them each their own desktop from Rentacomputer.com and just like the copier, they are delivered, set-up, and we’re able to get the most current technology available.
If it weren’t for Rentacomputer.com, I’m not sure I would have been able to grow my business like I did and for that, I will be forever grateful. That’s why I would recommend them to anyone who needed to rent any type of technology for their office.
