Welcome to Hodges Rent All

We have your tool and propane needs.

WHEN Howard Hodges was 14 years old he bought three bicycles – one new, two used – with the money he earned by working at his fathers gas station in New Monterey. He took the bikes down to the gas station and propped them up next to a  "For Rent" sign. World War II was on, money was short, and a lot of kids did not have bikes of their own.

So they came to the gas station and rented Howard’s bicycles for 25 cents an hour... GI’s from For Ord would bring their girlfriends, rent a bike and make the loop from Monterey to the 17 Mile Drive over the Carmel Hill and back to Monterey..."
