12 Good Reasons to Hire Equipment:

Minimum Stockholding

Ownership can be very expensive when equipment is idle.


Preparing, advertising and selling are cost factors that do not occur when hiring.

Right Equipment for the job

Eliminate the costs of using the wrong size or type of equipment. Hiring ensures the right equipment for the job.

Cost Control

Knowing the true cost of owning equipment is difficult, job costing is easier with hire.


Hiring eliminates the need for large storage areas thus reducing your overheads.

Stock Control

Continuous billing establishes accountability. Inventory loss due to pilfering is reduced.


All equipment is subject to breakdown occasionally, however our euipment rarely breaks down and if it does we will have you up and running again with the minimum loss of time.

Tax Allowances

Hire is 100% allowable immediately, no complicated depreciation sums to work out, no arguments with the revenue.


No workshops, no spares to stock or order, no mechanics to pay, no H&S records to keep and no unexpected repair bills.

Conservation of Capital

Hiring equipment frees your capital for other potentially more profitable uses.

Equipment Obsolescence

Equipment is constantly being changed and updated, make sure you are using the latest, fastest machines by hiring.

Increased Borrowing Capacity

Contractors who hire instead of buying find borrowing easier for actual projects instead of using up borrowing capacity on under utilised equipment.

In Short the whole point of hiring equipment is to allow you to get on with what you are good at.

Profit is in using the tools not owning them.
