Wide Range of High Performance Heavy & Small Plant Machinery for Hire in Benfleet
It’s no secret that heavy plant machinery hire is extremely popular in the UK, with 80% of all UK purchases destined for the rental sector. This trend is expected to increase throughout the globe, as the many benefits of hiring machines like mini excavators, skid steers and telehandlers are realised. Here are four reasons people choose to hire:
One of the major reasons for hiring equipment for your project in Benfleet rather than buying, is the fact that diggers etc are pretty expensive! This type of investment can be a burden for new start up construction companies, who are in the process of building up their reputation. Hiring a piece of heavy plant machinery means you can try out designs and brands, giving you a good idea of what you prefer, when you come to buy your own.
Each job may require a different purpose built machine, and although many models are quite versatile, you may find you suddenly need something you don’t have. If this is the case you could always hire a specific piece of machinery in addition to owning some of your own plant. This gives you additional choices should your requirements alter.
3. Additional Costs
It’s not only the initial outlay of obtaining your own heavy plant, there is also the question of ongoing service, maintenance and repair costs. Some hire companies like Rhino offer the services of their skilled mechanics and engineers for a customers own vehicles, but with a hire vehicle all checks etc are automatically completed. Models are also likely to be updated with the latest technology and security features.
There are always risks with any business venture, and should the worst happen, companies who own their heavy plant will have some big decisions to make. As vehicles and equipment depreciates it is unlikely that companies will gain a decent return if they need to sell.
As you can see it’s a good idea to weigh up the pros and cons of hiring as opposed to buying heavy plant machinery for your construction project. Call us for advice and info about our range on 01277 372 626
