The Blue Book Equipment Rental Rate Guide is published annually by the BC Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association, in partnership with the provincial Ministry of Transportation.The Blue Book has become the standard for determining equipment rental rates across the industry, and it is used by private contractors, large corporations and the government.
Blue Book Rates
The Ministry of Transportation determines the annual rates for the guide based on recommendations from the Blue Book Committee, and from its own research and calculations. The committee prepares its recommendations based on current equipment and ownership costs.
The Association advocates for fair rental rates that reflect the true costs of operating construction equipment in BC. The published rental rates are a guide and each operator must determine if the rates apply to their individual circumstances.
