Guide to Heavy Equipment Rentals

Industries such as construction, landscaping, agriculture, road building and waste management rely on the productivity of heavy equipment and machines to make development feasible. The increased benefits of construction equipment rental make it a practical alternative when choosing a temporary solution.

Not sure whether to rent or buy? We put together a guide to renting heavy equipment to make the best decision for your situation.
When deciding what rental equipment to get, use three steps to compare your options:

1. Set a Budget

Weigh the expenses of renting vs. purchasing when looking at your budget. Examine your internal budget if you want to utilize heavy equipment for several projects. If you need specialized equipment for a few jobs, consider how renting construction equipment may fit into your budget.

2. Weigh Ownership Versus Rental Costs

Calculate the total cost of ownership against renting to determine the appropriate choice. Include the cost of one-time capital expenditures, such as purchasing the equipment, along with operational expenses, such as insurance, maintenance and fuel.

3. Compare Equipment

Now that you’ve considered budget and ownership, you’re ready to compare your options based on the specific equipment needed. Take the time to review and compare information about different types of construction equipment like compactors, graders, excavators and tractors.

Mistakes to Avoid When Renting Heavy Equipment

It takes some consideration to know when renting is right for you. Consider these common mistakes that could leave you stuck with equipment you do not want or cannot afford.

  • Overestimating your needs: Rent what you need — not just what you think you need. If you start with a larger piece of equipment than needed, you might end up paying for unnecessary extra time and fuel.
  • Not preparing for downtime: You might have a construction project with a tight deadline. Prepare for the worst with extra time for breakdowns, repairs, and maintenance.
  • Failure to understand your responsibilities: Understand when your rental period begins and ends and your responsibilities during that time. When finished with the equipment, make sure it is clean and in good shape to return it properly.
  • Overlooking safety: Don’t forget to double-check if the equipment you are using is safe to operate under the conditions of your specific project.
