Top reasons why you should use plant hire for construction
Every successful demolition, landscaping or construction project requires the use of reliable plant machinery and a high level of expertise.
Ownership of construction equipment is expensive, labour-intensive, potentially hazardous and can cause a logistical nightmare. So when it comes to the use of excavators, diggers, dumpers and bulldozers, there are many reasons for hiring equipment from a reputable plant hire company such as Farwells.
Key benefits of plant hire:
The number one reason to hire construction equipment rather than buying it, is the substantial cost saving. To home and business owners carrying out one-off projects, this if of course an easy decision to make, unless you have a spare few hundred thousand pounds and acres of storage!
For construction companies and contractors, hiring construction equipment can also be extremely cost-effective. Plant machinery is expensive and hire purchase agreements require regular payments that can affect cash flow.
In addition to the initial purchase costs, there are many ongoing expenses such as servicing, repair, safety testing, breakdown cover and insurance. By hiring plant machinery, construction companies can save a lot of money and earn a quicker return on each project.
2. Storage and logistics
Not to state the obvious, but construction equipment and lorries require a LOT of storage space! Then there is the cost of high-level security to prevent theft and damage. By hiring rather than purchasing equipment, you can avoid storage hassle.
Farwells take away the headache of storage and logistics by delivering your plant machinery exactly where and when you need it. Each piece of equipment is delivered promptly, in impeccable working order, to construction sites on a daily basis, meaning workers can crack on with the job at hand with no delays.
3. Reduced capital expenditure
While businesses can claim capital allowances on expensive equipment such as diggers, it only applies to brand new machinery. If your business doesn’t have the capital to stretch to newer models, then it may well be more cost effective to hire equipment instead. Hired rather than bought equipment also avoids the pitfalls of depreciation.
4. Trained operatives included
If you are an individual carrying out a domestic project, you may not have the qualifications or confidence to operate plant machinery. At Farwells, all of our plant hire equipment comes with a trained operative, providing you with peace of mind that the work is carried out safely and efficiently.
As a construction company, you can also benefit from the additional manpower to get the job done, especially when skilled workers are hard to come by.
5. Variety and quality of plant machinery
There is a huge variety of plant equipment on the market, ranging in quality and price. When you hire from Farwells, you can be sure of a great range of the latest equipment.
All of our machinery is quality checked, subject to regular testing and scrupulously maintained, plus we can offer you sound, professional advice on the best piece of equipment for your construction projects.
