Thinking about whether to rent versus buy a forklift or other material handling equipment? You’re not alone. Long-term rentals are increasingly popular with companies both large and small.
Here are 12 benefits of a long-term equipment rental and whether it’s a good option for your business.
Benefits of Long-Term Equipment Rental
Long-term rental costs are significantly less than purchasing new equipment. Invest your cash in other opportunities that produce greater profit for your business.
Pay for what you use
Long-Term rental agreements are based upon the expected hours and operating conditions that you will use the equipment. Compare this to purchasing a piece of equipment: you pay 100% for an asset regardless if you plan to use it a little or a lot.
Rental payments are 100% tax deductible
Rental payments are an operating expense and are 100% deductible as a business expense. No confusing depreciation schedules or damaging tax ramifications at years-en.
Fixed payments, no maintenance surprises
Keep your material handling costs free of unpleasant surprises! Long-term rental agreements include regular maintenance as well as unforeseen unexpected repairs, meaning the cost is someone else’s responsibility.
Eliminate your parts and service departments:
If you currently own your fleet and maintain it you need mechanics, tools, and parts. Increase warehouse and plant space by eliminating the need for stocking parts and providing space to service equipment.
Long-term agreements can provide for upgrades should your business change. Don’t get stuck with equipment you no longer need due to a change in your business plans.
Keep your credit line clear
Unlike financing equipment, long-term rentals have little impact on your ability to borrow money to grow your business.
