The Benefits Of Long-Term Hire

Posted April 25, 2017

Why buy when you can hire?

Take the scenario of a warehouse manager where a forklift is required to move and rotate stock.  Do you buy it or hire it on a long term deal?

Let us explain why the overall costs and benefits favour hire:

Service and Maintenance Do you have the capacity and skill set to carry out routine servicing? With a long term hire contract in place, we take the strain.  We attend site and complete all servicing at no extra cost.  It becomes our responsibility to keep a working machine in place.

Breakdowns – If a machine breaks down we may have to exchange it but at least you have a constant, reliable supply allowing your business to continue. Warranty, breakdown problems and costs stay with us. It becomes our responsibility to keep a working machine in place.  You can rely on us!

Keeping the machine legal – LOLER inspections are a mandatory legal obligation for anyone using lifting equipment. These periodic inspections cost between £300 and £500.  When you are in a long term hire contract with Mainline, we cover this at no extra cost.  It becomes our responsibility to keep a working machine in place.

Upgrades – Upgrading old machines is a constant challenge; when to change and to what. Breakdowns are inevitable the older the machine.  Under a Mainline long term contract, we will constantly review your machine to ensure our mantra ‘use the right machine for the job’ is maintained.  It becomes our responsibility to keep a working machine in place.

Fast supply – Forget long lead times on new equipment. We are a very reactive business.  We deliver the right machine for the job to where you need it promptly.  Brilliant for those last minute jobs.  It becomes our responsibility to keep a working machine in place.

Favourable rates – Favourable rates can be achieved with a Mainline long term contract. Avoid having to finance or fund a capital project.  Avoid depreciation.  Enjoy a fixed, competitive rate.

Hire costs are fully deductible.

Cashflow is eased and can be managed more effectively.

Give us a call.  We think you will be surprised how our low long term rates can save you money!!
