If you’re renting equipment for a construction or renovation job at your home, you’re probably hoping to get a good price on the rental. After all, nobody wants to pay any more than they have to, and a construction equipment rental company might charge quite a bit for their services. Luckily, a big determinant in the overall cost of your rental is the time of year. So, if you’re able to put your project off until peak rental times are over, you may be able to rent construction equipment at a heavy discount. Discounts on Rental Equipment.
As you might expect, the best way to get major discounts on heavy rental equipment is to rent the equipment when it’s not “in season.” For instance, if you’re looking for lift equipment rental
, you might want to wait until the winter if you can. This is the time of year when lifts are less needed for home construction projects. If you’re doing work on a large lawn and looking for rental equipment, lawn tractors might be most available (and thus available at a good bargain) some time in the mid-summer or winter. Again, these are times when tractors are less likely to be a high-demand commodity.
Think about the equipment used in your project. After determining this, try to figure out the time of year when the equipment is least likely to be in general use. In doing so, you’ll have a much bigger bargaining chip when trying to get a rental discount. Discounts on Rental Equipment.
