Buying vs Renting Access Equipment

Buying vs Renting Access Equipment

It goes without saying, an effective and efficiently run workplace relies heavily on the equipment and tools you have available. What’s more, the quality and diversity of machinery is necessary to ensure you can always get the job done. The question remains however, should you be buying or hiring access equipment?

No matter your business size, the benefits of access hire vs buying can be far-reaching and have a significant impact upon your bottom line, amongst other things. We recommended performing a full assessment of your business to determine whether these benefits would work for your individual circumstance.

These are some of the advantages of hiring access equipment:

1. Cost Effective

One of the major benefits of access hire is the affordability of hiring instead of buying. Not only are you required to have a large amount of capital on-hand to purchase the machinery, but there are a number of ongoing costs. This can include paying for appropriate storage, transportation costs, routine maintenance and upkeep, repairs if they arise, and registration costs. In cases where you only use the machinery intermittently, these costs can add up.

2. Flexibility Hiring

instead of buying access equipment means that you have more flexibility and access in the machinery you have available. Depending on the job, you are able to quickly and easily hire the right machinery to carry out the works. It is far cheaper than buying all the necessary machinery outright and prevents wastage if you’re only going to be using the equipment once. You are also able to access the latest models each time you hire, when you need it, avoiding the issue of products becoming obsolete. Leasing access equipment also allows you to test the equipment to ensure you’ve chosen the right piece for the job. We have a range of forklifts, cranes, scissor lifts and boom lifts for hire.

3. Time Effective

Access equipment requires a lot of time and attention. The performance of ongoing maintenance and servicing is a necessary component of owning access equipment, and it is of the utmost important to ensure that your machinery complies with industry regulations. This can be incredibly time consuming, however, when hiring access equipment, it is the responsibility of the hire company, in this instance Auslift, to perform these necessary tasks, saving you time and money.

4. Availability Of Equipment

In some cases, you may have the necessary equipment on-hand already, however, there may not be enough of it to get the job done as efficiently and effectively as possible. Access hire accounts for peak demand times and the need for extra equipment on site.
