Blue Book

Every year, the B.C. Road Builders & Heavy Construction Association, in partnership with the provincial Ministry of Transportation, publishes the Blue Book Equipment Rental Rate Guide.

Over recent years, the Blue Book has become a standard for determining equipment rental rates across the industry, and it is used by private contractors, large corporations and the government.

The Ministry of Transportation determines the annual rates for the guide based on recommendations from the Association’s Blue Book Committee, and from its own research and calculations. The committee prepares its recommendations based on current equipment and ownership costs. The published rental rates are a guide and each operator must determine if the rates apply to their individual circumstances.

The main purpose of the Association’s involvement is to advocate for fair rental rates that reflect the true costs of operating construction equipment in B.C. The Association and Ministry of Transportation have forged a strong working partnership on this initiative.
