Testimonials

  • Rusty was very personable and great to deal with. He not only takes into account the value of your equipment, but also many other aspects of the company which bring value as well. I was very impressed with knowledge, experience and professionalism Rusty brought to the table.

  • I contacted Challenger and left a message about purchasing some used drill pipe. Within a few minutes my call was returned. I explained what I needed and the type of job I needed it for. Within a half hour, we were closing the deal and getting my job moving. Thanks to everyone at Challenger International for making this such an easy transaction. You are my primary source for any equipment needs.
