What You Should Know About Construction Equipment Rentals, Hamilton, Ohio

No matter the size of the project, if you have a one-time need for a piece of construction equipment, it’s impractical to make the purchase. Not only is it expensive, but you may also have to pay to store it somewhere. Construction equipment rental is a better alternative because you can rent exactly what you need for a short period. Although it’s a smart decision, there are a few details you should understand about equipment rentals first.

5 Factors to Consider Before Renting Construction Equipment

1. Timeline

Equipment rental companies may charge by the hour, day, or week, so the price can vary considerably, depending on the timeline for your project. Get an accurate estimate of the timeframe you’ll need the equipment, and ask the company how they charge for rentals. This will give you a better idea of the total cost.

2. Training

Renting construction equipment means using some of the latest technology, which you may not have training on. If you aren’t familiar with recent models, ask the company if they provide training. This will ensure you can safely operate all machinery and take advantage of the benefits newer models offer.

3. Transportation & Storage Costs

Transportation and storage for large pieces of equipment are expensive, especially when those costs are in addition to the purchase price. Equipment rentals can eliminate these added costs, particularly if delivery and pickup are included in the rental price.

4. The Right Equipment

Otherwise, you run the risk of renting the wrong tools or equipment and having to return them and pay to rent the correct ones. This switch could cost more money and delay your project. If you aren’t sure which machinery is right for the job, ask for a recommendation from the equipment rental shop beforehand.

5. Your Responsibilities

Before you sign a rental agreement, ask the company a few questions so you fully understand your responsibilities. Find out which party is responsible for delivery and pickup, what happens if the equipment doesn’t work properly, and if there’s anyone available to assist you after hours. Also, find out what their maintenance schedules are like to ensure you are working with well-kept equipment.
