Construction Equipment for Rent
Heavy construction equipment that costs a fortune to purchase is available for rent at a fraction of the price. Fixed rental contracts for days, weeks, months or years take only a few minutes to complete for a huge variety of heavy equipment. Large or small contractors and home owners can make use of equipment rentals for trenchers, cranes, dozers, backhoes and almost anything else needed on a construction site. Arrangements for delivery are usually made at the time the rental contract is set.
Equipment Availability and Affordability
The advantages of using rental equipment for construction jobs include affordability, availability and flexibility. Small contractors do not usually choose to invest large sums of money into rolling stock that requires routine maintenance. A busted hydraulic hose can shut down an essential piece of equipment and cause contractors to miss important deadlines. Construction equipment that is presented as rental property is always in working order, and it gets replaced if it fails to perform properly.
The variety of equipment that is available at a well-stocked construction equipment rental outfit is wide enough to allow a contractor to complete a job without using any owned equipment. By scheduling the equipment that is needed ahead of time, anyone who plans to use rental equipment can make sure that it is on hand. Availability is never a problem when the demand is planned for, and rental store owners can make sure to have the specific piece of equipment that a customer needs.
Flexibility of rental terms helps a contractor or home owner avoid excess expenses. The number of days a piece of equipment is required may change as a job progresses, and a series of short term contracts makes it possible to avoid paying for equipment that has served its purpose on the job site.
Construction job sites frequently need trenches for pipe and electrical installations. Depending on the size of the project, a backhoe is often the preferred method for opening a trench large enough for workers to stand in while doing various jobs. Home owners need trenchers to open areas for septic or electrical lines. A backhoe is the most versatile of equipment rentals on a job site, with its ability to demolish old buildings, move heavy equipment or materials excavate large areas, break concrete or asphalt and many other essential tasks.
Large and Small Equipment
Many jobs on a construction site need equipment that is much smaller than a truck, crane or dozer but is equally important. A compressor or a generator can make all the difference in accomplishing important tasks that keep the project moving along.
Equipment rentals level the playing field for contractors by making everyone look the same. Large companies that use rental equipment save wear and tear on company-owned equipment and small companies have access to everything that is needed to complete a successful contracting job. Any company or home owner can find the equipment that is needed. The price is right for every budget and job.
