Message From CRA's President

John Grill , CRA President



First of all, I would like to thank all of you for the opportunity to serve as the president of the California Rental Association.

I am grateful for the past presidents and directors, whose work and vision has made the CRA a strong organization.


I was first introduced to the rental industry in 1977 as a yard person and am now a partner in a rental company in Northern California.

The CRA was formed in 1946 as the California Trailer and Rental Yard Association by a group of individuals who recognized how much can be accomplished by working together and sharing ideas.


Fast forward 60+ years and the CRA’s benefits to its members include:

  • Discount Buying Programs
  • Industry Related Legal Advice
  • Trade Shows, Seminars and Territory Meetings
  • Business Form Services
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Insurance Services

What an exciting time for the CRA as well as the rental industry as a whole, full of opportunities, changes and challenges.


Has there ever been a better time to be a CRA member?
