The advantages of purchasing equipment
We recently covered the advantages of hiring access machinery in another blog post, but if you're still undecided about what the best solution would be for your company, read on to find out why purchasing your own equipment is definitely worth consideration.
1. You will always have the machinery you need
If you use cherry pickers, access platforms or hoists everyday, or your company has several projects lined up that require the regular use of such equipment, purchasing it will mean you always have everything you need, whenever you need it.
2. Could be more cost-effective
Buying may prove more cost-effective if you find you're repeatedly hiring the same piece of equipment. Rather than having to pay every time you need to use it, purchasing the machinery outright may cost more short term, but will likely not cost as much as any long term hiring fees will.
3. Buy second hand to reduce costs
Purchasing your own cherry pickers, hoists and other access machinery doesn't need to be expensive. If your company has limited funds but needs its own equipment, why not buy everything second hand? It will still do exactly the same job, work as it should, and will help you to save money.
4. You can accept as much work as you like
Buying your own access machinery will mean it is right there on site and readily available to use. There will be no need to rush jobs because you need to give the equipment back by a certain date, or delay work until the right cherry picker is available to hire. When you buy your own, your work will never be interrupted again, and there will be no limit to the number of jobs you can accept as a result.
By buying your access machines from Rapid Platforms, you can trust that your equipment will perform as it should for many years to come. Take a look at our sales page to find out more about the new and used hoists we have available.
