That's the way my rental department (shop foreman) is ran, If a machine isn't 100% it doesn't get rented or sold. The last thing I want is to cause a contractor or even homeowner down time from faulty equipment.....

Be careful and check out the equipment! The big "green" rental place sells a lot of their equipment with problems. I bought a rollback truck from them - Blown head gasket. Drivers daily logs I found under the seat noted the issues. They denied it and refused to do anything about it. An equipment dealer bought 10 skidsteers from them and ended up sending 8 to the auction because of major issues. Not all rental places are the same, but some sell equipment for a reason!
