Why is hiring building equipment probably your best option?

11 March 2014

If you’ve just started a construction company, you’d do well to consider building equipment hire. Even if you do decide to invest in a few key pieces, rather hang on before you go the whole hog – and read on.

The first reason why this is true is rather obvious: Building equipment is expensive, and to get everything you’re going to need requires a considerable amount of cash. Furthermore, even if you have enough start-up capital, what if the business fails? Also, rather invest your capital in your core business, and not in building equipment that can be rented at a fraction of its purchase price.

Then, of course, there is the fact that the only equipment worth spending money on is top of the line building equipment, because most second hand equipment doesn’t come with a guarantee and also, when you buy second hand, you can’t be sure of what it is you’re buying.

When you hire building equipment from a reputable company, on the other hand, you can be certain that you’ll get to work with the latest equipment that is in good condition – and if something breaks, operations won’t grind to a halt because a replacement machine will be on standby. You also won’t have to worry about things like cleaning, servicing, repairs or storage of the equipment.

Another reason why hiring building equipment is the better option is because equipment in this industry can become out-dated. New technology equipment always ensures the most productive operations on the construction site. This means that, if you buy, you’ll likely be looking to sell again in a couple of years – and you’ll be lucky if you get a third of the money you paid for it back.
