5 REASONS TO HIRE RATHER THAN BUY
How do you decide when to buy essential Construction / Gardening / DIY equipment and when to hire what you need? Here are our 5 pros for hiring instead of buying.
More cost effective – This is particularly important if you are only completing a once-in-a-blue-moon type of job. Hiring is a better financial decision with a lower upfront cost.
Better product – Hire & Rental companies will own better tools than you could realistically expect to purchase on your own. Better quality equipment will be able to complete the job you are doing to a higher standard than any tools you own yourself.
No need to store – Do you have suitable storage space for the equipment? It is likely that you may not have the space available to store a lawnmower, a compressor or other pieces of large equipment.
No maintenance cost – If you own your own tools, you will have to ensure they are being carefully looked after. Hiring them instead takes away all of the maintenance worries as they become someone else’s problem to deal with.
Better for the environment – Sustainability is key here and hiring tools instead of purchasing new items means fewer pieces of equipment will need to be built to meet demand. This reduces the amount of greenhouse gases that go into their creation. According to good housekeeping, the average power tool is only used for half an hour in its lifetime – it clearly makes more sense to rent one when you need it.
