GCBAA Partner Programs

The GCBAA Partners Program provides significant discounts for products or services your GCBAA member business may utilize. GCBAA has negotiated these programs to save your company money and to improve your margins. Each program's requirements and enrollment procedures are different. Please read carefully the procedures for those programs for which you elect to enroll.

Caterpillar Inc. and the Cat dealer network through their Cat Rental National Accounts Program have created an incentive program to further Caterpillar's commitment to supporting the GCBAA and the GCBAA Foundation. This program will recognize the collective rental volume of GCBAA members and reward a rebate on total revenue volume of our membership to the GCBAA and Foundation. Participation in this rebate program couldn't be easier. Simply rent machines from a participating Cat Dealer and leave the rest to GCBAA. Your company will be loaded into the Caterpillar tracking system and all eligible rentals will be combined with the rebate paid to the aggregate number. Eligible machine rentals will be from a Cat Machine Dealer or Cat Dealer Rental store only and not include other dealer divisions such as SiTech, Cat Power, or Cat Marine. Contact GCBAA Members Chris Caccavale at (507) 647-9157 or Caccavale_Christopher_M@cat.com for a copy of the contract.

The GCBAA and Foundation Board of Directors are pleased to continue their partnership with GCBAA Charter Member Sunbelt Rentals. Sunbelt Rentals has agreed to make a donation to the Foundation based on the rental volume of GCBAA members throughout the year. This charitable donation is available to GCBAA members even if they have a separate agreement with Sunbelt Rentals. If you are a  current Sunbelt Rentals customer or would like information on becoming a customer and helping support this program, please contact either the GCBAA executive (link) office or Sunbelt Rentals’ primary contact, Kevin Grieder: kevin.grieder@sunbeltrentals.com.
