Things to know about hired equipment
• There's no insurance on hired equipment.
• Hired tools should therefore be treated in the same way as you would your own.
If the tool breaks while I use it?
• We simply replace it without cost! Only if the tool/s is/are damaged due to mishandling, a repair charge is involved.
• The price on the price list is the price charged.
• There's no hidden cost in hiring of equipment.
• We stock certain consumables for machines at additional cost to the hiring cost of the machine, such as floor sanding paper, belt sanding belts, grinding discs, grinder blades.
• Hire-It! has 10 branches and strives for 100 percent customer satisfaction!
Virtually all equipment is subject to occasional breakdowns. However, when hired equipment break downs, idle time is minimised through replacement by the hire company and repair costs are eliminated.
Hired equipment includes full maintenance, no repair shop, no spare parts inventory, no mechanics, no added maintenance payroll of maintenance record keeping.
Equipment Obsolescence
Ownership of equipment involves the risk of rising wage costs and slower job completion time due to owning worn, obsolete models when new, better, faster models are available from HIRE IT!
Minimum inventory
Ownership can be very expensive when equipment is idle. Combining ownership of basic equipment with hired equipment as needed will minimise idle time.
Right equipment for the job
Eliminate the hidden costs of inefficiency due to use of wrong size or type of equipment and the maintenance and repair incurred. Hiring equipment ensures the right equipment for the job.
Use of hired equipment eliminates the need for large storage areas/buildings, thus overhead in your cost of doing business is minimised.
Personal property taxes and licence's costs are eliminated on hired equipment.
Conservation of capital
Hiring Construction equipment frees your capital for other potentially more profitable uses.
Increase in borrowing capacity
Contractors who hire instead of purchase find borrowing easier with better ratio of assets to liabilities since equipment does not appear on the balance sheet. The normal line of bank credit is not disturbed, a most important asset in securing bonds for construction work.
Disposal costs
Preparing used, obsolete equipment for resale, advertising and selling time are factors of ownership that do not occur in hiring.
Cost control
Knowing the true costs of owned equipment is difficult. Hired equipment offers you just one accountable cost figure, the hire invoice cost.
Inventory control
The presence of continuous billing on hired equipment establishes personal accountability. Inventory loss due to pilferage is minimised.
