Serving Joliet since 1927

Rendel’s started out as a chandelier maker back in 1927 when Adolph Rendel started the company.  His repair shop was converted into an automobile repair business and changed the name to Rendel’s Radiator & Body Co.

In the early 1930s James Langer and Abe Aronin bought the business and expanded services. As the business grew, Rendel’s became a corporation and added a GMC truck dealership to the company.

In 1961, Rendel’s accountant Harry Polcyn purchased the business and continued developing the business into a thriving GMC Dealership, Repair Center and Towing service.  H&J Truck Leasing, Inc. was added to rent and lease trucks to local companies and contractors, as it does today.  It was through this ‘Full Service’ approach that Rendel’s became synonymous with quality Trucks and Service in Joliet. 
Today, almost 90 years later, Rendels Inc. is still proud to be a Union, family-owned and operated company.  

When GMC discontinued the medium-duty truck we added Mitsubishi Fuso and Autocar Trucks.  We also added Hustler Mowers, Stihl handheld equipment, Mahindra tractors, and other quality lines of Power Equipment to our Dealership.  We stand behind every brand we sell.
We have a Light and Commercial Truck Body Shop and we work with all major insurance companies.  We boast one of the largest paint booths in Will County and all our work is guaranteed! 

In 2010, we purchased our first Heavy Duty Wrecker.  Since then we have made a significant investment in our Towing & Recovery Operations.  In 2013 we added a 60 ton Rotator, and in 2016 we added an 80 ton Rotator with twin steer axles.  There is no job we can’t handle.  

The Polcyn family, long time Joliet area residents are proud to carry on that commitment with every customer they serve.  We stand behind every Truck and piece of Equipment we sell, all our repairs are guaranteed, and your complete satisfaction is our top priority!
