As we approach the end of the year, the holiday shopping season goes into full gear and businesses are preparing for an increased demand. During this peak season, you might find yourself in need of additional scales to help your business run more smoothly. However, is it worth purchasing all those equipment right now?
If you are not yet ready to buy, hiring scales can be a great option. Here are some benefits of renting and hiring equipment:
No large upfront cash outlay
Purchasing a scale can be a large investment, and it may be an investment that your business cannot afford at this moment. Renting allows you to acquire equipment you need today without the capital investment needed to purchase a new scale. In other words, you do not have to part with a large amount of cash upfront. You will only need to pay your first hire instalment and have the scale ready for use.
No maintenance costs
All hire equipment will be fully repaired and maintained for general wear and tear, for the entire length of the hire period. You will also have access to trained personnel who are ready to provide support and technical assistance, to ensure you are able to use the equipment properly.
Not stuck with an asset
You might only need certain equipment for a specific purpose during a specific time – for example, counting scales for stocktaking, or certain bench scales during fruit picking season. These scales may not be needed for the rest of the year. If that is the case, renting prevents you from being stuck with an asset unnecessarily.
Renting scales allow you to upgrade to the latest equipment to keep up with technology. Or, you can switch to different scales as and when your requirements change. Not only that, but you will also have a huge inventory of options to choose from.
Try before you buy
With so many different types and models of equipment available, how do you know which is best for your business? By renting, you are able to try a scale out before committing to a purchase, so that you can know for sure that you are investing in an equipment that your business truly needs. And once you have found the perfect equipment, you get to enjoy discounts if you hire first and buy later!
