Rental of Industrial Equipment

Rather than going the traditional route of buying, consider renting as the solution for your equipment needs. Equipment rental through GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) contractors may be the best option to fulfill your equipment needs. For fast, flexible, cost-effective renting of equipment, turn to GSA MAS Special Item Number (SIN) 532310.

Renting equipment is an attractive option for the government, one that can provide more benefits than purchasing. Renting offers your agency the widest variety of equipment for added job versatility without the headaches associated with the by-products of ownership, including the costs of:

  • Regular maintenance and repairs
  • Transportation
  • Insurance
  • Warranties
  • Storage
  • Emission-law compliance
  • Contractor professionals who will:
  • Assess and secure the right equipment for the job
  • Offer a wide variety of specialized and modern equipment

Transferring the Burden of Ownership can Save Money

Buying a piece of equipment is a capital investment that includes the cost of warranties, maintenance, insurance, and storage. Other expenses of ownership include maintenance facilities and staff, training, fuel, and more. For this reason, ownership requires consistent utilization – typically more than 900 hours per year – for the purchase of equipment to be cost-effective. Renting keeps the burdens of buying, maintaining, and selling the equipment with the GSA MAS contractor. Also, contractors make significant annual investments in updating to the newest, most-advanced equipment and staffing experienced, well-equipped maintenance professionals. Renting agencies can receive the benefits of the newest and best-maintained equipment without the full costs of ownership.

Renting Offers Flexibility

Renting gives you the flexibility to take on a wide variety of jobs and projects that may require equipment you don’t have the capital to purchase. From seasonal jobs to large projects requiring specialized equipment, you’ll have the equipment you need, when and where you need it. This access to equipment will save you time and money, so you can focus more resources on your mission goals.

Renting Includes Knowledge and Training

Having the most up-to-date equipment is one challenge, but knowing how to use it can be an even greater hurdle. GSA-approved rental companies are staffed with professionals who will provide advice and training on the tools and equipment for rent. Also, some rental companies offer groups that have experience with specialized equipment applications, such as scaffolding-service providers, aerial specialists, pump and power, and more.

Benefits Include Transportation and Maintenance

When it comes to completing a project successfully, finding the right equipment is only a part of the solution. Selecting the appropriate means of acquiring equipment is a critical element of the process. GSA-approved rental companies can help you weigh your decision, select the right piece of equipment for the job, train you on the use of the item, transport the piece, and service it.
