Puckett Rents Opens New Cat Rental Store in Meridian


JACKSON, MS – Puckett Rents, the Cat® Rental Store for central and southern Mississippi, has announced the opening of its newest facility in Meridian. Located at 1105 South Frontage Road, this new store makes the fifth Puckett Rents currently operating in Mississippi.

Puckett Rents has been a major force in the Mississippi construction equipment and supply marketplace since its inception in August 1998. The Puckett Rents headquarters is located at their full-service facility on Highway 49 South in Richland. Additionally, Puckett Rents operates full-service facilities in Hattiesburg, Biloxi, and Madison, MS.

Says President, Hastings Puckett, "The Meridian area plays a vital role in Mississippi’s construction industry. We’re committed to being here and are excited about the opportunity to expand our service to the construction community. We’ve built a very successful business serving our customers better than anyone else out there. With top quality equipment, a wide selection of products and supplies, and a team of well trained, experienced rental professionals, we believe Puckett Rents brings an entirely new level of rental services support to the area."

Roger Brown, Puckett Rents Vice President, adds, "This new facility is going to quickly become a vital resource to area construction professionals. Just like Mississippi’s other four Puckett Rents stores, our Meridian facility will offer top of the line equipment rentals from industry leaders like Caterpillar, Genie, Soff-Cut, Allen Engineering, Wacker, and many more. Puckett Rents also boasts the newest and most reliable rental fleet in the area. In addition, we’ve brought in a full line of new and used Cat Compact Equipment for sale: mini hydraulic excavators, skid steer loaders, and track skid steers."

Every Puckett Rents store has a full inventory of contractor supplies - with ladders, silt fence, power tools, diamond blades, fall protection equipment and a whole lot more. In short, just about anything a professional in the construction industry might need, Puckett Rents has in stock and ready to go. Comments store manager, Adam White, "This new store is conveniently located for easy access. We’ve got the equipment and supplies our customers need, it’s fast and easy to get in and out of, and we’ve got a top-notch staff of people who know how to get the job done. It’s pretty exciting to have so much to offer contractors here in Meridian, all in one place. We invite everyone to come by today and check things out."
