The Show Must Go On: CGM Equipment Rentals

February 14, 2024


Let’s talk about rent. No, we’re not talking about the 1996 Broadway rock musical that became a sensation and inspired the hearts of many. We’re talking about equipment rental, which in our opinion, is just as fun but without the big musical numbers. Glue-mergencies can strike at any moment and cause chaos. Even in the big win moments, an underlying glue-mergency or a machine gone bad can rear its ugly head and put a damper on the occasion. But in the five-hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes (approximately) that make up a year, Chicago Glue & Machine has your back every step of the way.

Influx of work? The show must go on!

You know the moments. You get an SOS call from a customer who needs a large order with a quick turnaround. A major influx of work comes from out of nowhere when multiple customers need something all at the same time. Yes! But also, yikes. Your customers rely on you to get the job done efficiently but what happens when the workload doubles (or triples) and outmatches the equipment you have on hand? Enter stage left, Chicago Glue & Machine equipment rental.

We have the equipment you need for those moments when the orders are stacking up and you need to get the job done. We’ll deliver the equipment you need, and you’ll keep it for a week, a month, or two. However long you need it on the floor to finish the job, it’s yours. Once complete, we’ll come out and pick it up. Take a bow and close the curtain.

A glue-mergency is not going to steal this show!

Let’s set the scene. It’s a beautiful day; the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the machines are humming. Until they’re not. Equipment is down and you’re not sure what the issue is. Downtime could be five hours or it could be five days. You won’t know until our technicians get out there to investigate. Downtime, no matter how minor, can throw a major wrench in your production schedule but equipment rental can shrink that time significantly and act as your understudy. While we troubleshoot and determine the cause of the equipment malfunction, you can continue production without the downtime drama.

No rehearsals needed here.

We know what you’re thinking. Chicago Glue, that sounds great but how long does it take to get this rented equipment up and running? We’re on a tight schedule and we need to get this show on the road!

Our equipment rentals are what we call drop-in. This means it’s as easy as delivering the equipment, connecting it, and once the job is complete and the equipment has served its purpose, disconnecting.  And scene!

We call this number Rent to Own.

You need a new piece of equipment permanently, but you aren’t prepared to purchase it outright. Talk about a showstopper. Some may even call it a glue-mergency but not us. That’s where CGM’s equipment rent-to-own program comes in. We set up a payment program so you can have the equipment you need on the floor without the financial burden.

Cue the final curtain drop!

Glue-mergencies happen. Yay-but-also-yikes moments, too. That’s the gluebiz, baby. That’s why Chicago Glue and Machine is here 24/7/365 (or 525,600 minutes) to save you from a world without glue and machines gone bad.
