MANAGERS

Andrew Ward, Owner
Andy is actively involved in every aspect of Ward’s Rental. He aims to provide excellent service and quality products for every customer, solving problems with fairness and efficiency. Andy loves learning from others and considers himself a student of life. Andy’s career in the rental industry began in 2002 when he took over his family’s equipment rental business, and five years later, he ventured into tent and party rentals. Since that time, Andy has dedicated himself to building Ward’s Rental into the area’s premier rental provider; more than that, Ward’s is a local business that supports the community and helps other individuals and businesses to pursue their goals. In his free time, Andy enjoys playing poker, being a businessman, humanitarian, and most of all, a dad.

DELIVERY DRIVERS

  Adam Schurr, Lead Delivery Driver
Adam joined our team in 2018. He is a native of Missouri. He has owned his own business for the past 5 years: a field repair business repairing machines such as tractors, chainsaws, and the like. In particular, Adam is an expert in Kubota products. Prior to that, he was employed with another company in the rental industry. We met him as a customer and found that his skills were exactly what we needed to add to our team.
  Jim Thesier, Delivery Driver
Jim joined our team in early 2015, and he quickly became a very important part of our daily operations. His primary responsibility at Ward’s Rental is to deliver earth moving and lawn and garden equipment. Jim was the proud owner of Thesier’s John Deere Dealership in South Lyon, Michigan, for over 40 years. After retiring from his business, he became available to support our team for the spring, summer, and fall seasons. This keeps him involved in the equipment industry that he loves so much. Jim has proven to be reliable, honest, hard-working, and dedicated to every aspect of what he does here.
