Why It Might Be Best to Rent Some Equipment for Your Business

Posted on: 25 October 2016

Before you spend a lot of money on the purchase of new equipment for your business, you will want to take a few moments to read through the following reasons why you should look into equipment rentals from companies such as A-1 Rental.

You Won't Have to Increase Your Insurance-Policy Value

The more pieces of expensive equipment you own, the bigger your business insurance policy has to be. After all, you need it to cover everything, including the repair or replacement of any equipment that is damaged in an accident while transporting it down the road or from a natural disaster. If you simply rent a lot of the equipment that you do not use every day, you will not have to worry about the increase in your policy. Generally, most of the equipment-rental companies out there will have a rental insurance policy that will protect you should something happen to their equipment while it is in your possession. Make sure that you are always asking for a copy of the rental insurance coverage so you will have that for your own records.

Your Policy May Come with Operators

Depending on the type of equipment you need to rent and your experience with such equipment, it might be in your best interest to contact a company that will send an operator as well. This way, someone who has a lot of experience or is certified to run such machinery will be able to come in, do the job that needs to be done with the equipment, and then take it back to the rental company when the job is done. This relieves a lot of pressure from you to find someone experienced enough to run the equipment for you if you personally are not able to do so. This might also save you a lot of time, as you won't have to spend valuable time loading and unloading the rented equipment on one of your hauling trailers. You will also not have to spend time figuring out how to work the equipment if you are left alone with it. This is time that you can spend doing other things, such as prepping the job site, cleaning up construction debris, or supervising your employees.

With just those two points in mind, it should be rather easy for you to see why it might be best for you to rent some of the construction equipment you may need for your business.


Swimming Pool Design Dilemma

I decided to have a swimming pool put in my back yard last summer. I remembered the pool that my grandparents had when I was a little kid, and I thought that it would be just a simple rectangular pool like theirs. But when I began researching and talking to swimming pool contractors, I found out that I had a lot more design options than I had originally thought. Picking out the pool design and pool features that I wanted was harder than I would've thought, but I wound up with a great free form pool with a few fun features. I love it and I use it daily. I decided that I would start a blog to share what I’d learned about swimming pool design, and how to work with contractors, to help others resolve their own pool design dilemmas.
