If you regularly need certain items of plant machinery such as dumpers or diggers, you may wonder whether buying would be a better option than hiring. This needs careful consideration, as plant machinery is extremely expensive and mistakes not easily rectified!
Cost – This is always an important factor with most things, and hiring your plant machinery is hands down the most cost effective option. By hiring, you have the choice of a range of products as and when needed. Purchasing plant represents a major investment, and construction companies often have to make difficult decisions. It’s no good buying a digger, then discovering you need a dumper just as frequently.
Storage – Storage of plant machinery is a bit of a dilemma for many, as most machines such as dumpers, rollers and mini diggers are valuable. Plant theft in the UK is a major problem, and 90% of vehicles stolen are never recovered. In fact the problem is so widespread that honey trap vehicles have been used to catch thieves. A stolen dumper for instance is more than just inconvenient, as jobs may have to be postponed. Professional plant storage will add significantly to the cost of owning your machine.
Flexibility – When you hire dumpers etc,you are afforded the flexibility to choose the length of your hire. You can have the exact type of vehicle you need for the job in hand at short notice. Hire your plant machinery for short or longer periods, depending on your need. You may need a dumper for a one off job, in which case hiring is the ideal option.
