The Benefits Of Long-Term HirePosted 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.
