THE POSITIVES FOR RENTING EQUIPMENT RATHER THAN PURCHASING
Safety Equipment is relatively cost effective to purchase when buying individually. There are many positive reasons to rent equipment that will save you time and money. Let’s take a look at what situations that it is best to rent versus own safety equipment.
Things to consider for Safety Equipment rental.
Rentals are a popular option for companies and contractors who need safety equipment for short periods. Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you should rent or buy your safety equipment.
1. How Much Money Can You Spend Upfront with Safety Equipment Rentals?
If you lack cash on hand to purchase safety equipment, renting may be a better option. You will pay less initially for the rental while still getting to use the equipment as needed. You can also skip insurance premiums and maintenance costs when you rent instead of buying equipment.
When you spend less money upfront, you have more working capital to invest in your project. If you want to rent more equipment or purchase supplies, you will have the money to do so since you do not have capital tied up in purchased safety equipment.
2. For How Long Will You Need To Use The Equipment?
If you only need the equipment for a short time, renting is the lowest cost option. Especially if you need it for three months or less. With flexible rental agreements, you can rent equipment for a few days or several months. When buying does not meet your budget, renting can help you keep working and get your job done.
3. Do You Want To Try The Equipment On Your Job Site First?
When you rent, you get to see how your personnel adapts to using the safety equipment and how well it fits with your site and operations. Renting lets you select from a variety of sizes, options, and brands to find the one perfect for your business before buying. During the rental period, get feedback from your personnel to see which equipment performs best with and if they have other recommendations for options that you should look for in your next rental or purchase.
Using a try-before-you-buy approach helps you make the most informed decision before investing in safety equipment. Through renting equipment, you will know what works well with your site and operations. You will feel confident that your purchase was a quality investment.
4. Do You Want To Free Yourself From Repair And Maintenance Responsibilities?
Equipment you own comes with the added cost of having to make repairs and conduct regular maintenance on it. When you rent you get the benefit of enjoying well-maintained and thoroughly inspected safety equipment. Maintenance costs are included the rental fees, so you can free yourself from worrying about separate fees to have maintenance done on your rented equipment.
5. Do You Have Storage Space?
For safety equipment, you must have dry climate-controlled storage to prevent damage when not using the units. With rentals, we store the equipment for you. Not needing to store the equipment during periods of nonuse means you have one less thing to worry about.
