As the summer approaches, you’re likely to be carrying out home improvement projects. If you’re looking to complete any large jobs, you may be wondering whether it’s better to purchase the equipment you need, or hire it. Below are our top four reasons why we think Frank Key Plant and Tool Hire can be the best solution for you.

Cost benefit

Unless you’re purchasing the equipment you know will be used regularly, hiring is often the most cost effective solution. That’s because an upfront payment to buy a large piece of equipment, is usually out of most peoples budgets. Hiring, on the other hand, is much more manageable whilst still getting you the equipment you need, for as long as you need it. In the case that there are several expensive pieces of equipment you need the savings hire can offer are huge.

Maintenance free

When you purchase a piece of equipment, you may not be considering the maintenance costs that come along with it. Faulty equipment costs can mount up quickly, often costing more that the product did in the first place. When you hire, all the servicing costs are covered by the supplier, meaning you only pay once.

No need for storage

A small but significant factor to consider is the storage space a large piece of equipment can take up either in your home or outdoor storage spaces. You may be looking to buy a pressure washer or woodcutting table to complete a project, but don’t have the space to store it. Hiring removes the inconvenience of having to find room to store your equipment.

Latest and greatest

Few of us have the luxury of buying the latest models of the equipment we use. Whilst most equipment is hard wearing, if you’re looking for an upgrade, purchasing a brand new piece of equipment can be expensive. With hiring however you have access to the most current product models, as they’re released, at a fraction of their retail price.

With plant and tool hire, you are able to avoid upfront costs for purchasing expensive machines and tools that may not see regular use. This method can be highly cost effective when considering the above factors. Frank Key Plant and Tool Hire ensures you only pay for what you use and when you use it.
