Its no secret that rental companies make a killing
with the equipment they rent out. Most companies
will rent on a daily or weekly basis, which is good
for them but can be bad for you. Depending on what
area you work in, the price can be very high or
Depending on what type of equipment you need, the
price to rent will vary. Excavators and off road
dump trucks are among the highest to rent, as they
can cost as much as 12,000 dollars per month! This
may seem a bit outrageous at first, although if you
own a profitable company and are working on a big
project, you'll have problems meeting the price.
When you need more equipment and don't want to rent,
you can buy your equipment. Buying is the way to
go if you plan on using the equipment more. If you
work on large projects on a frequent basis, you may
want to look into buying the equipment you need
instead of renting.
Buying will save you money in the long run, providing
you are going to be using the equipment again. If
you need the equipment for one or two projects, you
may just want to rent. Sure you won't own the
equipment, although you certainly don't want to buy
something you won't be using.
