3 Reasons Renting Garden Equipment Is Better Than Buying

Posted on: 4 September 2015

Whether your a business maintaining a piece or property or simply a homeowner looking to deal with some major yard work, it can be quite difficult to decide whether it is best to simply rent or buy the equipment needed. Renting is often the better option in many cases, especially if you don't find yourself frequently needing to use the piece of equipment in question. This way you can use the equipment without shelling out retail price for it for one task. However, there are some other benefits associated with renting, such as...

Easy Delivery And Pick-Up 

One of the most daunting task you might be scratching your head about before renting is how to get the equipment back to where you rented it from when you're done. Yet, you shouldn't worry about this, most rental companies offer superb, fast acting delivery services which can deliver any piece of yard equipment to and from your home at a moments notice. This means you can simply rent the equipment you need, choose a date and have it promptly delivered to wherever it's needed. A prompt retrieval service is also quite handy as well, since you'll be able to get the equipment back to the company as soon as you no longer need it, which will save you the headache of having to store it somewhere on your property.

Don't Worry About Maintenance 

If you bought a hefty piece of equipment yourself, you might find yourself surprised to find out just how much of a cash sink they can be in order to keep them running properly. By renting, however, you can dodge this pitfall as you'll never be responsible for the cost of maintenance. When you rent, maintenance and any associated storage cost are for the rental company to deal with, which means you can focus on what's important and that is completing whatever task is at hand.

Never Get Stuck With Outdated Equipment

Rental companies also generally keep their equipment models as new as possible in order to give them the edge over other rental companies. After all, if another rental company down the street has the same gear, only newer it might be more efficient which can cause renters to go there instead. As such, you can rest assured that garden rental equipment will always be state-of-the-art and well maintained in order to ensure maximum satisfaction. 

So, the next time you have a big landscaping project planned, consider renting any necessary heavy machinery, you probably won't regret it. 


Using Heavy Construction Equipment Safely

When I was a kid, my family owned a small timber company. My father, my grandfather, my three uncles, and my cousin worked hard to make this family business a success. Every year, they assessed their heavy equipment needs. If they discovered that they needed a new piece of heavy machinery, they did not hesitate to purchase it. They knew that replacing worn equipment was necessary in order to protect the employees of the business. Whenever they bought a new piece of machinery, they also scheduled training sessions to teach employees how to properly use it. On this blog, you will discover the importance of training employees how to safely use new heavy construction equipment.
