Before you pay out cash and become the proud owner of that 40 Tonne Tracked Excavator or the shiny D3 Bulldozer, you should consider hiring. There are many benefits to renting construction equipment for your next project rather than putting down a substantial payment on a new piece of machinery. Deciding to rent or buy can be difficult, if you weigh up your situation and list the pros and cons, you should be able to make a choice that best suits your business. Money is always a consideration, so why not contact a company who specialise in plant hire in Motherwell and test out their machinery before you invest.

Short Duration

Renting is perfect when you need equipment for a short duration, once the project is complete, the hire company will collect their machinery. If the equipment is liable to stand idle after the work has been done, it makes more sense to rent it rather than buy.

Test the Water

Renting machinery also gives you the opportunity to test equipment before you make a big purchase. You’ll be paying a lot of money when you buy, so why not test different brands beforehand?

Zero Maintenance Costs

Another good thing about renting is having no maintenance costs. The company you rent the construction machinery from will look after all maintenance and repair costs, leaving you free to use the equipment, avoiding additional payments.
