How Can We Help You?

A World of Rentals was opened in June, 1998 by the Wilson brothers, Chris and Colin. Both had worked at the decorating store when their parents owned it and learned a lot about the business by being involved in all aspects of that store. Their parents have been supportive of this venture from the beginning – from helping out around the store to teaching the ins and outs of bookkeeping.

A World of Paint was formed later that year. Chris and Colin drew on their knowledge of the paint industry and brought a line of top quality Canadian-made paints, stains and urethanes. Paint was a natural fit with the rental side, as it made them a ‘one-stop-shop’. We carry everything that our customers need to complete their projects.

Shelving and Racking World also came into being in the fall of 1998. This side of the business specializes in used warehouse shelving and pallet racking. Lloyd Wilson started this business accidentally, by selling off the used racking and shelving that he had kept from his previous business. Finding a need to be met in this niche, Colin and Chris have continued to supply warehouse shelving and pallet racking in the Kingston area.

A World of Rentals is the type of business where you can expect to the meet the owner in the store and where the person that you talk to on the phone has the knowledge to know what you need for the job. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our customers. It has always been our pleasure to see a job well-done.
