Plant Hire and Tool Hire: The Pros and Cons

Plant and tool hire is a great way to get the equipment you need for a project without having to buy it outright. There are many benefits to hiring plants and tools, but there are also some potential drawbacks to consider. It’s all about choosing the right option for your business to help you get the job done efficiently and with as little expense as possible.

If you’re wondering whether to choose equipment hire, here is everything you need to know.

The pros of equipment hire

- Cost-effectiveness - Hiring equipment such as mini digger hire or excavator hire is often much cheaper than buying them outright. This is especially true for large or expensive equipment. This enables you to get your hands on the things you need at a much lower price. Great for businesses just starting out or if you only need the tool for one job.

- Flexibility - Hiring equipment gives you the flexibility to use them for a specific project or task, and then return them when you're done. This can be helpful if you only need the equipment for a short period of time or if you urgently need a piece of equipment. Ordering a new piece of machinery can often take time but hire allows you to get it much faster.

- Variety - Plant and tool hire companies offer a wide variety of equipment to choose from. This means you can find the right equipment for your needs without having to buy everything yourself.

- Expertise - Plant and tool hire companies often have experts on staff who can help you choose the right equipment and provide training on how to use it safely and effectively.

Things to consider about equipment hire

- Availability - Plant and tool hire companies may not have the equipment you need in stock, especially if you're hiring it during peak season.

- Damage - If you damage the equipment while you're using it, you may be responsible for the cost of repairs or replacement.

- Insurance - You may need to purchase insurance to cover the cost of the equipment in case of damage or theft.

However, even with insurance costs, equipment hire is usually cheaper and the hire company will pay a service fee should the equipment break down on the job. If you’d like to try plant hire or tool hire, give Rocket Rentals a call today or visit our website.
