A lot of customers ask us why they should hire items instead of buying them? So we thought we would put a short list together on the key benefits of hiring tools and equipment to help you make that all-important decision. Hiring in the construction industry is extremely common and beneficial, so why not take their lead?


#1 It’s More Cost-Effective To Hire

One of the greatest reasons to hire tools and equipment rather than buying is the substantial reduction in costs. It eliminates the initial upfront investment which can be incredibly expensive. It also alleviates any loan or hire purchase agreement payments which in turn helps with cash flow. You only pay for what you need making it much more cost-effective.

It is also particularly important if you are only going to use the item on a specific project so likely won’t use it often or again. Our prices for tool and equipment hire are some of the best in Staffordshire and Cheshire so you can feel safe in the knowledge that you are saving those precious pennies for more important purchases.

#2 Low To No Maintenance

By hiring equipment directly from a hire business the cost of the equipment maintenance is with them. Not only does this mean you don’t need to invest in the equipment to repair when it goes wrong (which can be extremely costly), paint when it’s looking a bit tired or clean when it gets covered in mud (it happens trust me!). It also means that you do not need space to store the equipment, some of our machines take up a lot of room. No lifting equipment is needed to move it around in your garage or storage facility either so it’s a win-win!

#3 Disposal At The End Of Life 

If you hire equipment, when that piece of machinery has sadly come to the end of its life you do not have to worry about selling it or disposing of it. The hassle that is associated with this process using auction sites or similar selling pages often results in a low return on investment. You may also not get a true value for the equipment.

#4 Flexibility

You may hire tools and plant equipment for your own business. You can have flexible hire agreements during your peak season meaning you are not tied down to long lease agreements or loans to purchase your own. 

#5 Latest Tools

You can have access to all the latest tools and equipment. At Instant Tool and Plant Hire, we heavily invest in the latest and safest technology. Some of the benefits of up-to-date models include precision, reliability and efficiency. They can also be more efficient cutting your job time down.
