In today's up and down economy, it can be hard to decide what to spend your precious business capital on. I've written previous posts on how renting Office Equipment can be a great solution for businesses trying save their operating capital for other business needs. All the great reasons for renting office equipment, also hold true for renting Heavy Equipment, for construction businesses.
If you're in the construction business, the purchase and expense of heavy equipment can be astronomical. Sometimes business is booming, and to do the job, you need lots of equipment on site. Other times, construction is slow, and the equipment can sit idle for months. Yet it still costs you a lot of money in payments, or in maintenance and repairs, even when it's sitting there.

Rental fees can be written off as an expense for your business. And you don't need to keep capitalization and depreciation records for this equipment. That's nice, because we all can do with less paperwork.
As you save your money for your other business expenses, you'll get to try out different types of heavy equipment, and see what you like the best. Industrial equipment is such a huge purchase, it's definitely nice to try, before you buy.
Broken down equipment can be a very bad thing on a job-site. It makes it difficult to meet projected deadlines, and keep work moving ahead smoothly on the site.

Obviously, you own some of your own construction equipment, if you're in the business. But as you develop and grow your business, you may want to consider renting Heavy Equipment as an option, for both short term and long term construction projects.
