5 Benefits of Renting Heavy Equipment


If you are considering whether to purchase or rent construction or other heavy equipment it is important to evaluate the pros and cons of each. While buying heavy equipment can be spendy, it may be the right choice in certain situations, like as knowing you will be using it for many years and many jobs. However, there are many costs associated with buying equipment that you may not consider until the deal is signed. When deciding to buy or rent be sure to think about the following.

Equipment is Broken In

When you rent heavy equipment you will receive machinery that is up to date on maintenance, broken in and ready rumble. Buying new construction vehicles may seem like a good idea, but it could need hours of use to fully break in.

No Storage Costs

When you purchase new equipment you need to have a place to store it. If you do not you'll end up having to pay in order to rent a storage spot. If you're having to rent storage space you will likely also have to consider th transportation costs associated with getting the machinery to each jobsite.

No Maintenance Spending

When you rent equipment all maintenance is will be conducted by the fleet owner and you won't be responsible for any breakdowns. Maintenance can be expensive for any type of machinery, and unexpected breakdowns cost even more time and money. A rental item can generally be quickly replaced if it can't be fixed quickly.

No Big Investment

Purchasing equipment is expensive. While it may be the right move for some people or businesses that will be utilizing it time and time again, for many others, renting is a much easier financial investment.
