Member Spotlight: Taylor Rentals



Out of all the wonderful things that can be said about ERNIE and COLIN BARNCASTLE, the owners of TAYLOR RENTALS (and there are a lot of them), the best thing that can be said is: They Keep Their Promises.

In business your WORD matters. Commitments made, need to be kept.  Unfortunately, there are too many businesses and business owners whose word can’t be trusted.  Who often fall short on keeping their commitments.

That’s why meeting Ernie and his son, Colin owners of TAYLOR RENTAL PARTY PLUS,  is so refreshing and encouraging.  Because they do what they say they will do – and they do it with style, grace, patience, kindness and professionalism.

Ernie is a Mid-west kid, born and raised in Iowa, who came to California in 1957, and moved his family to the Central Coast in 1984.  He went to work as a Manager for Stanley Tools in 1987 and in 1994 purchased both Taylor Rentals and Stanley Tractor. 

Today, TAYLOR RENTAL PARTY PLUS has two Central Coast locations – one in San Luis Obispo and a second in Paso Robles, from which they generate every resource (i.e., tents, tables, chairs, dance floors, platform staging, pipe and draping, silverware, glasses, china, etc.) necessary to enhance or enable any and all events.  Since they design and build their own inventory they are able to meet the need of every client.

Whether it be a back yard or ballroom or any other site, they are masters at setting the stage for WEDDINGS, anniversaries, retirement parties, birthdays, religious celebrations, etc.    They will show up as promised, set up and stage, and clear and clean up afterwards.  They are in constant contact with their customers and always make sure things are right.

Colin, who has a degree in Psychology from UCSB and a Masters in the same discipline from Aukland University in New Zealand; runs the day by day operations of the business, while Ernie over sees planning and promotion. Together they make TAYLOR RENTAL PARTY PLUS a success.

If you want to enhance your event, make sure it is perfect starting from the ground up, then give Ernie and Colin a call.  They will help turn your Dream Wedding (or any other event) Into A Cherished memory.
