Forklift Rental vs Purchase – Pro’s & Con’s
Renting helps businesses avoid being tied down to a single type of forklift, that in most cases, will work for only a specific job, but not others. Rental forklifts that compliment already owned equipment during “rushes” or busy season is a great way to maximize productivity and utilization. It’s costly to let purchased equipment sit idle when business slows.
Rental equipment ensures peace of mind. You will be stress free knowing equipment will be delivered to the job site, it has gone through a rigorous “pre-rental check-out” process, and has been properly taken care of with routine scheduled maintenance.
When owning equipment, bills can pile up fast with the endless stress of transporting equipment from job site to job site, searching for a service provider to perform the necessary scheduled maintenance, and having to take care of equipment after break downs. Maintenance costs are the biggest expense associated with owning your own equipment.
These are just a few of the main reasons you may want to consider forklift rental vs purchase. We offer a wide variety of rental equipment, from forklifts for material handling needs to aerial equipment for inventory control and facility maintenance.
