Compaction Equipment: Why Renting Might Make Sense for Your Business

With spring around the corner and contractors gearing up for a busy 2022 you may be thinking - why rent? And more specifically, why rent from Conquest Equipment?

Well, we might be biased, but we think there are lots of good reasons to rent – and not just from us. (Although it would be our pleasure to work with you).

Maintain Cash Flow
Renting a machine allows you to get equipment on your work site for the projects you are working on without tying up valuable cash. A smaller up-front cost means you can get to work without having to worry about how to pay for that equipment once the project comes to an end.

Save on Repairs and Downtime
When you take a machine on rent you are responsible for the upkeep of basic maintenance, but if something goes wrong, you don’t have to deal with the headache or cost of repairs.

Conquest machines are kept in rent-ready condition so that you can trust when a compactor shows up, it can get straight to work. Another consideration is that rental fleets tend to be newer equipment and a rental machine is much less likely to run into downtime issues while having some of the newer features you might not get purchasing an older used machine.

RPO is an Option
A program we offer here at Conquest Equipment, and I am sure at many other equipment dealers, is a rental purchase option (RPO). RPOs give you the flexibility you need. Get equipment working on a project with a smaller up-front cost allowing you to maintain your cash flow when and where you need it in your business.

Specialized Equipment
Every project has its own specific requirements and specific pieces of equipment to get the job done. This makes renting specialized equipment make sense. Why outright purchase something that is only needed for a limited amount of time?

Shortage Issues
Purchasing equipment has been a challenge the last couple of years due to supply chain issues. There have been long wait times and a lack of availability across the board on equipment.

Renting removes some of the uncertainty in a project. You will have the equipment you need, where you need it, and when you need it.

Of course, these are ideas you want to take into consideration. The fact of the matter is that you know your business best and will have to make decision based on what makes sense financially for you. It is always good to look at all the options available when in that decision making process.

Here at Conquest, we would be privileged to help you get to work on your next project. You can learn more about our rental program over on our rentals page. or you can give Sam or Gary a call and they can help you get on the right track.
