Over the years, plant hire companies have gone from strength to strength following an increase in construction activity. Most construction companies have used plant hire as their go to solution, when a specific job needs doing. This also extends to those carrying out DIY or home improvement projects, as they may only need to use the equipment once.
There are several advantages to hiring your mini digger, dumper, skidsteer or roller, a major one being cost. Companies of any size will be impacted by investing in a high quality piece of kit. These are extremely valuable machines, which is why they have state of the art security features. Purchasing a machine of your own means expenses which include the original price [that will depreciate]. Not only is the machinery expensive, but any attachments available are also pretty costly.
Costs do not end there, as you have insurance etc, service, maintenance and repair charges. Storing these big vehicles can also be tricky, as they can’t be left just anywhere. They need a dry and secure space, preferably inside a building or unit, to ensure their longevity. Storing them on-site is not always the best option, as if people can gain access to the site at night or during breaks, they can be stolen or damaged. Even if you are insured against this eventuality, the job will often have to be postponed. This isn’t a good look where customers are concerned, and commercial projects have time constraints to stick to.
When you hire, you arrange the dates you need the equipment, pick it up or have it delivered, and get on with the work. Clients such as local authorities expect contractors to be reliable, and ready to go.
The technology involved in plant design is ever changing, and new features are constantly appearing. Machines are also increasingly built for sustainability, with reduced carbon emissions etc. It isn’t uncommon to invest a large amount in a new machine, only to see an updated model released weeks later. Apart from this aspect, construction companies are realising that hiring equipment is a much more environmentally friendly way to go. This is particularly relevant as there have been calls for the construction industry to modernise and change their way of doing things.
Hiring lessens the need to continually produce new machinery, which also contributes to carbon reduction. So when you hire compact excavators, dumpers, loaders and rollers as well as other tools and equipment, you are helping the planet. Properly serviced and maintained machinery means less chance of accidents too, as they perform as intended.
So it’s clear that hiring construction equipment offers a convenient, low risk, safe and cost-effective solution with minimal maintenance. Businesses with reputations to uphold prefer hiring, to ensure they always have the correct piece of kit or tool for the job.
