Rental Program

When you choose to rent your air inflation machine, your company is likely to be a high-service, fast-paced environment that has no time to worry about maintenance or replacement parts. We have a lot of expertise in high-performance workplaces.

Like most rental programs, Excel requires a small monthly fee – but nothing like the first and last month’s rent, plus a security deposit! Our experienced sales team will work with you to set up exactly what you need and create the options that suit your business. 

Rental customers decide whether to offer free air or create revenue by including an easy-to-use coin or credit card option. Renters are able to track their income transactions in real-time while knowing Excel is delivering their maintenance & service. 

We provide and install our state-of-the-art pay air machines SC09-SS or free air machines SC05-SS at your location(s). 

In exchange for your rental of our air machine, you receive the machine installation and ongoing maintenance and replacement parts. You keep all the revenue generated from your pay-air transactions, so marketing this service will bring in even higher returns.

Revenue Share Program

Revenue Share is Excel’s easiest & fastest way to get your air machine up and running – with no upfront costs. In a nutshell, Excel handles everything so you can focus on running your business. Plain and simple.

The main difference between our rental program and revenue share depends on how you manage your business’s cash flow. Here are suggested considerations for you to ponder:

  • DIRECT PURCHASE: Making a one-time investment in a state-of-the-art, dependable, and effective air machine can bring your business passive and recurring revenue, lots of goodwill, and significant long-term savings with little overhead or maintenance.
  • RENT: If you prefer a small monthly cost while enjoying 100% of the revenue generated from your air machine, our rental program is for you.
    If you prefer to offer FREE air with your rental, pull in new and repeat customers, and generate proven goodwill, a small monthly cost (rental) is for you.
  • REVENUE SHARE: If you prefer to be completely hands-off while receiving a share of the revenue generated with your on-site air machine, then revenue share is your best bet!  Excel will deliver and maintain your air machine and send you a check! 

To guarantee long-term effectiveness and a better bottom line for your company means prioritizing wise investments in quality products – and all of the above, check that box! 

But don’t just listen to us; draw on the experiences of other business owners who have experienced the Excel difference. The testimonials on our website’s home page demonstrate how air machine investments keep owners in various industries happy.

One owner described how our air machine helped them increase customer satisfaction by streamlining the process of inflating their tires. Another client commended the dependability and precision of our products, emphasizing the long-lasting value they offer.
