The Benefits of Renting a Generator

For many reasons, it may not make sense for your team to invest in purchasing a portable generator. Instead, construction companies and contractors can save money by renting generators for specific projects, such as projects on remote worksites, or in anticipation of severe weather. If you don't expect to use a generator frequently, renting allows you to create room in your budget for other needs, save storage space and reduce transportation needs.

Choosing a portable generator for rent offers numerous advantages compared to buying. If your company is spending too much on equipment repairs and maintenance, you don't have to pay for these often prohibitive costs with rentals. You also won't need any startup capital or a substantial downpayment.

Renting also gives you more fleet management flexibility since you'll need to add equipment when your workload increases or you require a quick replacement for a broken-down unit. Your project results will improve because you can match products with specific applications. You can even try one or more models you're thinking of purchasing to help you find the perfect fit for your business.
