Associate Member Spotlight Cal-West Rentals, Inc. has been a family-owned North Bay business since 1958. For the last 30 years, it has been owned and managed by the Doherty family, with second generation owners and siblings Bridget and Tyler Doherty currently managing the business. Cal-West Rentals is proud to be the only rental company that is a member of the North Coast CLCA, and Tyler currently serves on the Board of Directors. Cal-West Rentals is located in Petaluma and frequently covers all over Marin, Sonoma, and Napa County, as well as all of Northern California. We are a full service equipment and party goods rental company that serves contractors, homeowners, ranchers, and the event industry. We pride ourselves in offering excellent customer service and quality equipment at competitive prices. Pat Doherty started Petaluma Rental Center in 1978. He then bought Cal-West Rentals, Inc. in 1987 and subsequently consolidated both Tyler & Bridget Doherty stores into our current location at 1300 Petaluma Blvd. N. in Petaluma. Pat died in a snowmobile accident in December of 2000, so his daughter Bridget decided to take over the business right after graduating from USC. She stepped into an already successful business with great management in place and huge support from the community. Tyler Doherty, Bridget’s younger brother, joined Cal-West Rentals in a full-time role in August of 2007 after graduating from UC Davis and working in sales for Ditch Witch for two years. He acts as the sales manager, as well as the many other roles that come with running your own business such as driver, yard worker, and occasional weekend manager. Today, Bridget and Tyler work to grow and expand the family business while keeping the same strong focus on excellent customer service, quality equipment, and constant involvement in the community. Our business has been increasing each year as we expand our inventory to meet the growing demand of our expanding customer base. We are constantly upgrading our equipment and adding new models to our fleet to reach the different niche markets of both construction and party equipment rentals. We hope to continue to grow our equipment and customer base in Northern California in the upcoming years.

A Huge THANK YOU to Calâ—?West Rentals for all their help & support for the North Coast Chapter!!
