ESTA Fraud and Theft Prevention

Welcome to Rental Guard 

ESTA's RENTAL GUARD is an alert system that has proven effective in preventing fraud and theft, and locating stolen equipment. It enables the world-wide network of professional rental companies to list missing/stolen equipment, share information about how thefts are occurring, gain intelligence about potential new customers, and report and receive information on questionable customers.

Anyone may receive theft alerts and report stolen equipment free of charge. You must register to receive the email alerts.

You must be an ESTA or PLASA Member to post, receive or respond to a New Customer Inquiry.

Anyone may post a Questionable Customer Alert but you must be an ESTA or PLASA Member to receive them.
