As you ready your construction company and crew for a new project, you might review what equipment you have on hand and what types of machinery you will need to use for it. You want to be sure you have what is needed to begin and complete the work on time and to your client's satisfaction.
However, you also may not have the money in your budget to go out and buy the machinery and equipment needed for the project. Instead of spending that kind of cash, you can instead invest in a crane rental for it.
A crane rental comes with a lower cost than what it would cost you to purchase a crane outright. In fact, the purchase price for a new crane can be in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Your cash flow may not be able to absorb this huge price tag.
Instead of blowing all of your company's cash on a single piece of machinery, you can lease it for the project for which your company has been hired. You might pay a fraction of the purchase price in leasing it every week or month. Your cash flow might accommodate this amount of money better than what it would cost you to buy a crane outright for your company to use.
Delivery and Setup
Even more, you may not have the flatbed trailer to load up and haul a new crane to your project's job site. When you opt for a crane rental, however, you can arrange for the crane to be delivered and set up for you.
The leasing company can arrange for the crane rental to be delivered on time for you to start your project. The delivery crew can also set up the crane for you and make sure the crane rental is safe and ready to use.
Upkeep and Repairs
Finally, during the time you lease the crane rental, you may not have to pay for its repair or upkeep. The costs for repairs and maintenance, such as oil changes, may be included in the leasing price you pay. You may avoid having to take them on as additional costs for the time you are using the crane rental.
A crane rental can save your company and give you access to the machinery you need for a new project. You can also have it delivered to and set up on the job site and get repairs and upkeep included in its leasing price.
