About Tinga Online

Tinga Online Limited™ is an online marketplace that connects construction equipment owners with potential equipment users.

We help individuals or corporations who may not have construction equipment of their own and have a project that creates a need for them to rent equipment. Through Tinga Online, you can source for required construction equipment that is closest to you or your work site. Our construction equipment portfolio varies from heavy machinery such as trackhoe excavators, to portable welding machines, and anything in between. Headquartered in Nairobi (Kenya), our solution is expanding rapidly across Africa.

How It Works





Search for your desired construction equipment or other required equipment at your location of choice.


Select an equipment among the displayed results and complete a simple request form.

Tinga Online aims to provide value to contractors and equipment users alike.
