Considering construction equipment rentals?

Sometimes renting construction equipment is better than ownership.

We get it – owning your own fleet of construction equipment has its perks. You can be confident you’ll have access to the equipment you need, when you need it. Your team gets to know the gear inside out and backwards. And you can take pride in your fleet, knowing you’ve worked hard to build it.

It’s not all sunshine and roses, though – when that equipment breaks down, or worse…you’re on the hook. When disaster strikes, support from your construction equipment rental provider can save the day.

But the benefits of renting equipment go well beyond being able to access the right piece of gear in a crisis. 


Renting construction equipment lightens your load

When you own equipment, you’re on the hook for all the carrying, maintenance and operating costs, and sometimes, despite your best efforts, equipment breaks down at the worst possible moment. Sometimes it even gets stolen. 

When you rent construction equipment from Cooper, you’re tapping into our fleet. We take full responsibility – from maintenance to safety, delivery and pick-up. We’ll replace equipment if it fails, or if your needs change. You can still be confident you’ll have access to the equipment you need, when you need it – and it will perform when you need it. When you’re done, we take it back. 

We’re not just lightening your mental (or financial) load either…we also employ the skilled trades necessary to maintain our equipment so you don’t have to.

Learn how often you’ll really use that specialized equipment

It happens to the best of us. We hear about a new product. We take in the rave reviews from people we know and trust (plus a few strangers on the Internet). We get excited. We take the leap…and six months later, that product is tucked away somewhere collecting dust. Why? Because we just don’t [insert ambition here] as much as we thought we would, if only we owned the thing. 

Fitness equipment and kitchen gadgets are one thing. But specialized construction equipment costs a lot more than the latest treadmill or tricked-out coffee maker. Your business can’t afford to invest in a piece of equipment, only to have it sitting in your yard because you just don’t do a certain type of job as often as you thought you would. 

With construction equipment rentals, you can monitor usage, crunch the numbers and calculate whether purchasing the gear is an investment that will pay for itself over time, or if it’s more economical to rent on an as-needed basis.


Get exactly what you need for a job

When you already own a fleet, there can be a temptation to settle for a “good enough” tool for a job. Maybe a skid steer with a 3,300 lb. operating capacity would make the work go faster, but you make do with the 2,500 lb. capacity machine you purchased three years ago. After all, it still gets the job done.

But when you rent, you have the freedom to scale equipment up or down on a job-by-job basis. That’s why it’s important to partner with a good construction equipment rental company that takes the time to understand the finer points of every job and recommend the right piece of equipment – and the appropriate specs – to get the work done right.
