4 Reasons Why Equipment Rental Beats Buying

It’s time for another project. You’ve got your contractors and subcontractors lined up, and everything is in order to break ground—but wait, you don’t have any machinery!

There’s no doubt purchasing construction equipment is extremely costly. Not every person or company can just go out and spend tens of thousands on a new excavator—that’s where FastTrac Rentals comes into play. Take a peek at four of our favorite reasons to rent equipment instead of purchasing it.

1. Expense Reduction

This may seem obvious to many, but equipment rentals are by-and-large cheaper than purchasing. Of course, this depends on how frequently you find yourself in need of equipment, but in most cases, this holds true. Reducing expenses by going with rental equipment means you’ll have extra dollars to allocate to other areas, yielding you the best return on investment.

2. Obsolescence is Obsolete with Equipment Rentals

Another great reason to stay away from purchasing equipment is obsolescence. Rental facilities like FastTrac will always have sturdy, newer, and well-maintained equipment with a great service record. Plus, not owning the equipment means you’ll never have to deal with trying to sell or get rid of old equipment. Leave the paperwork to us and get straight to the dirty work!

3. Accessorizing

We’re not talking about matching your boots with your hat either—we mean equipment attachments! Renting equipment from a trusted source like FastTrac Rentals will allow you peace of mind knowing that you’re getting the correct attachments compatible with the equipment you are renting. No more wasting time and money trying to find the right accessories.

 4. License and Registration? Please.

This one is a common favorite: renting equipment from FastTrac means you don’t have to factor in the cost of applicable license fees, registration costs, or depreciation in value as soon as you drive it off the lot.

These are just a few of many benefits equipment rental has over purchasing equipment.
