Renting Equipment For Your Construction Project


Before starting a large construction project, there will be many different pieces of equipment that need to be acquired. Generally, the most affordable option for getting this equipment will be to rent it from a heavy construction equipment provider.

Prepare A List Of All The Various Pieces Of Equipment You Will Need

Before you start the process of evaluating potential heavy construction equipment rental providers, you should prepare a comprehensive list of the various tools and other pieces of equipment that your project will need. This list can make it much easier to accurately assess whether or not a particular rental provider will be capable of offering you all of the different types of equipment that your project will need. By limiting the need to use multiple rental services, you may find it easier to streamline the process of acquiring these tools for the project.

Always Perform An Inspection Of Any Rental Equipment

Prior to taking control of the rental equipment, a physical inspection should be completed of it so that you are aware of any visible damage or other issues with the equipment. This will allow you to alert the rental provider so that they can make a note of the issue. This can spare you from a situation where it is assumed that you caused this damage, which could lead to you being liable for the repair costs. Fortunately, this type of inspection will be very quick, and it is a routine part of the rental process. In fact, many providers will have an agent accompany you during these assessments so that it can be easy to report any issues.

Follow Your Maintenance Obligations For Long-Term Rentals

If you are renting heavy construction equipment for a long-term period, you may need to review the maintenance obligations that you will have. Luckily, rental services will typically limit the amount of maintenance that their clients will have to do to their equipment as much as possible. For example, these services may even be able to dispatch a technician to the site to complete routine maintenance that the equipment may require over the weeks and months that the client is using it. This can significantly reduce the risk of there being a malfunction that causes major damage to the equipment and that causes substantial disruptions to the project. When these services are needing to send a technician to complete routine maintenance, they may be able to work with you to schedule this work for a time when it will cause minimal impacts on the project.
