Why you should hire an excavator, not buy

Deciding whether to hire an excavator or buy one depends on several factors, such as the frequency of use of this construction vehicle, the size of the project, and the availability of funds. However, here are some reasons why hiring an excavator for your next construction project might be a better choice:

  1. Cost savings: Excavators can be very expensive to purchase, and they usually require a large downpayment to purchase the machine outright. Not to mention their maintenance costs can also be high. By hiring an excavator, you only pay for the rental period (the time when you need to use it), which can save you a lot of money in the long run.
  2. Flexibility: Different projects require different types and sizes of excavators (from mini excavators to the largest heavy machinery excavators). When you hire an excavator, you have access to a variety of models and excavator attachments which means you can choose the one that best fits the construction site and job requirements. This flexibility can save you time and money by ensuring that you have the right construction equipment for the job.
  3. Reduced downtime: If you purchase an excavator and it breaks down, you will need to have it repaired, which can take a lot of time and money. When you hire an excavator, the rental company takes care of maintenance and repairs, ensuring minimal downtime on your building project.
  4. Reduced storage costs: Excavators are large machines that require a lot of storage space. When you take on an excavator dry hire company, you do not have to worry about storage space costs, as the rental company takes care of the equipment when it is not in use.
