3 Tips for First-Time Equipment Rental

Renting equipment is a good financial choice for your business – but it takes a little research to choose the best equipment rentals for your needs. Especially for the first time, the equipment rental process can have many moving parts to consider. It will help to assess your wants and needs before committing the resources to equipment rentals.

Here are some tips for a smooth rental experience for those new to the world of equipment and tool rentals.

1. Be Mindful of the Timeline of Renting Equipment

Choosing the perfect time to schedule your rental can feel like a guessing game at the beginning. You don't want to rent too early, or the equipment may come when you don't yet need it. You could incur unnecessary fees or experience other disruptions by having unneeded equipment on site.

On the other hand, if you wait too long to inquire about renting specific equipment, you risk it not being available, putting your job at a standstill. When you’re renting equipment, you’re going to want to keep a close eye on your projected schedule to find the best window to place your rental.

2. Rent the Right Kind of Equipment for the Job

When you’re renting equipment for your project, it’s not a good time to be estimating what the job will be like. There is probably nothing worse than paying for a piece of equipment that you can’t use because it’s not suited for the job.

The best way to avoid this is to thoroughly understand the job you need to be done and research what equipment will and won't work for the tasks.

3. Ask What Services the Rental Company Provides

Do you know your rental company's policies on what's included and what is extra? Be clear about the fees associated with maintenance, repairs, and refuelling, so you're not shocked when you receive your invoice.
