Hire v purchase

When it comes to equipment and plant, there are two options available. Hire or buy.

There are many advantages to hiring your equipment as opposed to buying them. Here we look at what they are:

  1. Cashflow
    There’s no beating around the bush. Hiring the equipment you need for the duration you need it is much cheaper. Even if it’s an extended period of time you can spread the cost month by month so your cashflow isn’t affected.
  2. Expertise
    When you hire equipment through a credible company such as Onsite Hire, you can be assured that, along with the product itself will come a team of experts who will be on hand for the duration of the hire to help with any issues you may have, including if the product itself has any technical problems. No more grappling with a company’s returns/refund policies!
  1. Maintenance
    When you hire a piece of equipment you can be safe in the knowledge that it will have been serviced and maintained to an exceptionally high level before being hired out to you. Ongoing maintenance adds extra costs on top of the sum you will have paid to buy the product – something you don’t have to worry about when hiring.
  1. Quality of equipment
    Hire companies tend to have top of the range versions of their products and will always upgrade, so they are offering their customers the best equipment available. If you buy, the chances are that you will have an old version pretty soon, which you’ll have to replace if you use it a lot.
  1. Storage
    Hiring out large pieces of plant is a much better idea than purchasing them because you don’t have to worry about where to store the item once you have finished using it.
