Do you want to open your own demolition company without having to spend too much on equipment upfront? There is the option of renting all of the demolition equipment that you need to get your business started. You can also purchase a few pieces, and simply rent anything that does not presently fit within your budget. Here are a few things that you might have in mind in regards to renting equipment as a new demolition business owner.
How Long Can Equipment Be Rented?
The length of time that demolition equipment can be rented out depends on the terms of the company that you get it from. Some rental companies might place a limit on the duration of time that each customer can keep rental equipment in their possession. However, many of the companies will allow the equipment to be out as long as it is needed. You will basically have to sign a contract, and the equipment must be returned on a specific date. Keep in mind that if you still need the equipment after the contract ends, it might be possible to get an extension by paying more money.
What Are Types of Demolition Rental Equipment?
You should be able to obtain any type of demolition equipment that you need from a rental company. However, some of the companies might have a larger selection to choose from than others. You can rent demolition equipment such as jackhammers, robots, diamond wire saws, and many other types. Simply contact rental companies in advance to find out if they have the type of equipment that you need available.
Can Operators Be Hired Through Rental Companies?
It is possible to hire operators through demolition equipment rental companies. If the service is available, you will likely be charged by the hour for the operator's time. However, keep in mind that it is most ideal to hire operators if the equipment is only needed for a short-term project. You can hire your own contractors if you intend on keeping the rental equipment on a long-term basis.
What If the Equipment Is Accidentally Damaged?
If there is any accidental damage to the equipment while it is in your possession, you will be held responsible. However, a deposit is usually required when a contract is signed that can be used towards repairing accidental damages. You will have the chance to inspect each piece of equipment before signing a rental contract.
