Why you should hire your plant instead of purchasing

The construction and landscaping industries have always been in a constant state of evolution, with new technologies and equipment emerging all the time. One of the biggest decisions that contractors and business owners face is whether to purchase machinery for their operations or to hire it. While purchasing machinery can provide a sense of ownership and control, it often comes with a range of disadvantages that can outweigh the benefits. In this blog, we will explore why hiring machinery can be a more advantageous option for your business. 

Access to the latest technology: Hiring machinery gives you access to the latest and most advanced technology without having to make a significant investment. This means that you can deliver projects more efficiently, to higher standards and take advantage of the latest innovations in your industry without having to purchase outdated equipment. An example of this is ATM’s very own McConnell Robopower. Being the only Robopower in operation in the UK we are proud to offer a solution that is the toughest, safest, and most productive remote controlled tool carriers of its kind. It’s high-grip tracks and low centre of gravity enable the Robopower to work on slopes of up to 40 degrees. 

Reduced maintenance costs: When you hire machinery, the responsibility for maintenance and repairs falls on the equipment rental company. This means that you don’t have to worry about the costs associated with maintaining and repairing your machinery, which can be substantial. Additionally, at ATM we offer regular maintenance checks, ensuring that all machinery is always in good working condition.

Cost-effective: You will only pay for the time you use our machinery, which means you don’t have to make a large upfront investment when purchasing. This can be particularly beneficial if you only need machinery for a short period of time or for those that are just starting out and don’t have the budget to invest in expensive equipment.

Reduced storage space requirements: When you hire machinery, you don’t have to worry about finding space to store it when it’s not in use. This can be particularly beneficial for businesses that operate in urban areas where storage space is at a premium. Additionally, if you don’t use the equipment regularly, it can be expensive to store and maintain, making hiring a more cost-effective option.
