New Contractors: Don't Be Afraid to Rent Equipment

2 Reasons To Purchase Heavy Construction Equipment Instead Of Renting It

by Ian Howard

If you have your own construction business, then you are going to need to use a large variety of heavy construction equipment. Because of this, you are going to need to determine whether or not you should rent or purchase the equipment that you need. There are some situations where renting may work well for you, but there are also other situations where it is going to be in your best interest to purchase the equipment instead. This article is going to discuss 2 reasons to purchase heavy construction equipment instead of renting it. 

You Don't Have To Wait For It To Become Available 

If a piece of heavy construction equipment is in high demand, then you may have to wait until it becomes available to rent. This can have several negative consequences on your business. One negative thing that can come of having to rent a piece of equipment is getting behind on your jobs. This is not only going to make your customers unhappy, but it is also going to cause you to lose money because you are not getting your work done as fast as you possibly could. Then, once the piece of equipment does become available, you may only get it for a limited amount of time because it is in such high demand. This can make it very difficult for you to get all of the work done that you need to, or to get good quality work done, because you will feel very rushed to get the job done in the time that you are given.

You Can Easily Make A Return On Your Investment 

If you purchase a piece of heavy construction equipment that you are going to use for almost every project, such as an excavator, you are going to quickly see a return on your investment. While this is going to depend on how big the projects are that you are using this piece of equipment for and how long they take you to complete, you are still going to be able to make a good profit off of them, which essentially goes toward paying for the cost of your equipment. This is going to be much more beneficial than renting because once the piece of equipment is paid for, it is paid for. Whereas, when you rent, you are going to be paying for the piece of equipment every single time that you rent it.
