“In the Spotlight”
Our Focus Business this week is:
All American Rentals
David Weatherall, owner
425 SW 2nd AV, Estacada -- PO Box 2130
He’s from Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England. He met his wife Antina, (who grew up in Carver), in Florida. David and Antina Weatherall have a 12-year-old daughter and have been living in the old Methodist church on the hill, for the last 6 years. They own three businesses here in the Estacada neighborhood. And Glen James married them.
The business we’re featuring this week is All American Rentals which opened in 2007. David opened it in order to have the equipment he needed to renovate the old Methodist Church into a home. The other two businesses owned by the Weatheralls is Hot Diggity Dawg and Antina’s Doll Supply.
“I love Estacada and the people who live here. That’s why I moved here and opened businesses. The people are honest and friendly and I enjoy meeting them. I can help most homeowners with the equipment they need. Tractors and rototillers -- equipment most homeowners use. We have new, quality equipment.”
“We are now a Bobcat dealer. There are only five in Oregon. The local people don’t have to leave town for a large variety of quality rental equipment.”
The All American Rental mission statement is “to grow it.” David believes Estacada will be “massive in 10 years, if allowed to grow.”
David’s involved with the community by sponsoring a little league baseball team; he helps with the 4th of July celebration; and he has donated rental equipment for the work on the memorial park.

very hard working, says Antina, David’s wife
When asked “what’s one question you wished I had asked today?”, David said, “I’d like people to know that we are an official Bobcat Dealer. It’s just like being a “car dealership” for this sort of equipment. We have tractors, UTVs and much more. And we’re at least $5 cheaper than anyone around. The customer is king!”
SPECIAL -- If you come in to All American Rentals and mention seeing this spotlight feature on the chamber website, you’ll get a FREE hot dog meal, at Hot Diggity Dawg.
All American Rentals was started by David Weatherall and Antina Berray in October 2007.
David had a vision when he saw the old run down mobile yard on 2nd street.
They purchased the property in May of 2007 and worked very hard to get it ready for a grand opening in October of that same year.
All American Rentals has all types of items to rent such as trailers, generators, compactors, lawnmowers, rototillers, and much more
including storage containers for either at yard storage or they can bring the container to your house.
David brought Bobcat in as a part of the rental fleet and it has become a real good asset to the community.
All American Rentals is open 6 days per week
from 8am – 5pm Winter &
