Acquiring construction equipment is an important part of starting a job. The job cannot start without the equipment, and the construction equipment you get has to be adequate for the job. Buying construction equipment takes time and can much more expensive than renting. It also constricts you, as you will be tethered to one type of boom lift, telehandler or other equipment instead of being open to changing your equipment as the jobs change. Renting equipment is less expensive and for many, a more efficient way of getting the job done.
When you rent equipment, you are only paying for equipment per job. You are not forced to make payments months after the job ends. This allows you to add the price of equipment rental onto the price of the job, which means one invoice and one easy payment. With renting equipment, everything gets a lot simpler.
Renting also allows you to choose exactly the type of equipment you need. Whether your next project requires a boom lift, telehandler, or something else, you can rent the necessary equipment quickly and easily. You can choose the reach your equipment must have, or the weight it must carry. When renting equipment, the options are fairly endless. Being able to choose equipment better suited to each and every project is more productive and efficient. Jobs are done faster and better than with equipment that “will do” for a project. On top of this, the equipment available for renting is constantly being updated. You will usually be getting the latest and best equipment available on the market. Depending on the advancements, this new equipment could make your job easier and faster.
Transportation is made easy by renting construction equipment. When you buy equipment, you have to store it somewhere in between jobs. When it is time to use it, you have to haul it to the job site. You may end up having to transport this equipment back and forth multiple times, which is colossal waste of time. If you rent equipment, it goes to your job site and usually stays there until the work is complete and then it is returned. Renting also relieves you of the insurance hassle. Typically, policies are taken care of by a third party, which saves you time and money.
There is a reason why renting construction equipment is the go to option this year. We are stepping into the future of technology, where there is no room for wasted time. People are not interested in waiting around for their construction to happen gradually. For many contractors, jobs do not last long enough to make purchasing equipment worth the price tag, especially when a new and improved version becomes available before the bills are even payed off.
