About us

Great products for great people

Helping traffic control companies secure the best equipment at the nation’s lowest rental rates. Street Smart Rental, Inc. is a nationwide family owned and operated traffic safety supply company based out of Lino Lakes, Minnesota. Started in 1999 as a renter for traffic control companies, Street Smart and its owner, Mike Granger, have taken pride in being a “small” company delivering “big” ideas to the traffic safety industry.

Our Team


We offer both “short-term” and “long-term” rental options for traffic control companies across the country and Canada. Our rentals range from 1 trailer for 1 week, to 50+ trailers for 1 week/ month/ year.

“Peak season” customers use Street Smart to bid jobs that call for equipment that they don’t have (and may not want to buy).  Bid any job and feel confident that Street Smart will be there to support you.  “Year-round” customers recognize the value of managing cash flow.  They realize the true cost of ownership and choose to supplement their inventory with rental inventory.


After 10 years of renting products to the traffic industry on a national level, Street Smart has developed a sales and technical support staff with industry experience that is second-to-none.  Using volume purchasing we can get the lowest prices in the country on traffic safety equipment.

This allows us to resell to traffic-control companies at a competitive price.   Customers buy from Street Smart because, along with a competitive price, we can offer a warranty and service that the manufacturers cannot. Using our nationwide rental fleet, and service technicians, we are able to support and respond to warranty issues better than anyone in the industry.


Street Smart has worked-out distributor agreements with several of the large traffic safety manufacturer’s in the industry.

Our sales and technical support staff have traveled the country (and continue to do so) visiting manufacturing facilities and staying up to date on the latest products and practices in the industry.  As a result, today we are a certified distributor, re-seller and repair facility for many of the major traffic safety manufacturers in the industry.

Street smart takes pride in providing you fast easy access to the most technologically advanced, reliable, and cost effective traffic safety devises in today’s market. More importantly, we take pride in providing exceptional customer service in a small company style manner.
