Construction Equipment Rental

Construction & Forestry Rental Benefits

Construction and Forestry equipment is too-often left to collect dust until it’s needed for a new project.  Doing so leads to equipment depreciation. Renting can be a double benefit to construction and forestry companies because rental fees are often immediately deductible as business expenses as opposed to depreciated over a long period of time.

Instead of buying it, renting includes the opportunity to “upgrade” your equipment as you see fit, which gets around maintenance costs, and costly storage space.  For many construction and forestry firms, renting instead of buying heavy equipment is a net benefit for the company, and gives managers the opportunity to try out construction equipment before making a purchase.

Since we maintain the unit, you avoid the expense of upkeep. If a piece of machinery breaks down, we will fix it, and if the repair will take an extended amount of time, we will usually exchange the broken unit with a different one.
