The tools and equipment contractors use are quite expensive. In fact, many contracting companies like yours will rent, lease or borrow some types of equipment because it is not cost effective to purchase the item outright. If you cannot justify the cost of ownership, leasing or renting are much more viable ways to still have the use of the equipment and have it be affordable. If something happens to those tools or the specialized equipment while it’s in your care however, you may find yourself legally and financially responsible for the full cost of what was lost or destroyed. If your company is unable to afford purchasing equipment outright, do not put yourself at risk of having to pay for a leased version instead.

Whether your company needs to rent a crane so that you can complete one of your contracts, or you need to lease equipment so that you’re capable of fulfilling the needs of a new job you recently won, if you’re unable to fully afford the cost of ownership then leasing and renting expensive equipment is the best way to go.

Some of the specialized equipment that your contracting company must lease or rent as needed cannot be quickly or easily repaired.
