John Leigh established V-Bar Equipment Company in 1993 which has maintained family owned and operated. Originally, a purchaser and re-seller of used forklifts, the business has grown along with the building. After the passing of John Leigh in 2014, daughter Susan Elgin took over and quickly found her passion. V-Bar Equipment Company has been your premier provider of a variety of warehouse equipment services and your trusted used forklift dealer, since. Conveniently located on I-20 in Abilene, TX, we are proud to provide Taylor County, TX and the rest of Southwest Texas with the highest-quality forklift rentals, training, and maintenance.
The American Rental Association (ARA) annually recognizes companies that improve the image of the rental industry. In March of 2019, V-Bar Equipment Company in Abilene, TX was presented with the President’s Image Award for Region Four at the Regional Receptions at The ARA Show.
