RENT vs BUY – Which is Best for Your Business?
The Rent VS Buy debate is a common discussion we have with our customers. We understand every business is different and their equipment requirements can vary greatly; yet when we list the pros of renting your materials handling equipment from Preston Rentals, many are surprised by the long list of benefits that can be enjoyed.
Retractable Loading Platforms are a specialized piece of equipment. Our SuperDeck is designed to simplify the handling of materials, particularly on multi-level construction sites. Its unique design creates a ‘drawer-like’ loading platform system allowing the platforms to be stacked vertically and retract and extend from the building. This innovative feature has dramatically increased safety and reduced crane operation time for customers around the world.
We understand the pressures faced in construction and regularly have discussions with customers who are considering purchasing their own loading platforms rather than renting them. 5 important points to consider include:
When reviewing costs associated with the purchase of a loading platform, the initial purchase price, interest payments, maintenance, storage, licencing and transport should all be considered. These costs can add up quickly.
Preventative maintenance such as regular servicing, safety checks, fine-tuning and refurbishing / fabrication are extremely important to ensure your site and personnel are always safe with well-maintained equipment.
When you rent SuperDecks from Preston Rentals, these costs are our responsibility. You only pay for the equipment for as long as you require it and are guaranteed a quality, well maintained and full functioning platform is delivered every time.
Many businesses choose to rent construction equipment based purely on convenience. As well as overseeing maintenance, registration and insurance, renting equipment offers the convenience of transport being taken care of, with no ongoing storage costs when the rental period ends.
You can COUNT ON US to deliver you an easy and convenient rental process.
Rental equipment gives you the flexibility of always having the right equipment and the right advice for any job. We understand that different builds have different requirements, therefore our SuperDecks are available in varying sizes and widths to ensure a seamless installation and appropriate fit for each of your builds.
Our team will work closely with you to supply the equipment you need.
Risk is another major consideration. Renting equipment allows businesses to mitigate some of the commercial risk and occupational health and safety (OHS) risks that come with owning equipment. As employers, we are all responsible for ensuring the safe access to and operation of all equipment. However, when purchasing equipment, we also take on responsibility for mechanical safety and maintenance. Renting equipment provides businesses with the same assurance of equipment that is rigorously tested and serviced, without bearing this additional cost and responsibility.
Leave the risk to us!
Technology that underpins construction equipment is always changing and by renting construction equipment your business will always have access to the very latest in technology and innovation. Working alongside an equipment rental specialist is also a great way of keeping abreast of industry developments, as they occur.
There are extensive benefits of working with a trusted and reliable brand like Preston Rentals for your loading platform needs. Our team of professionals will gladly discuss your specific needs, make recommendations on the equipment you require and provide a detailed quote for your consideration.
We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
