Grow Your Contracting Business By Renting the Equipment You Need

Sometimes a shovel works just fine in our town, but for those times that you need a really big hole you should consider Excavator Rental in Harrisburg, PA. If your contracting business only occasionally needs the extra power provided by this type of equipment it might be more feasible to just rent one instead of having to purchase one. Especially since if you own one year round you will have to maintain it and find the space to store it when it is not in use. As a small business owner, it is important to try to grow your business while being careful to keep your expenses in line. When you’re just starting out expansion wise, it can be a wise financial decision to engage in Excavator Rental in Harrisburg, PA. You can always look at buying later once you find yourself busy enough to justify the expense.

Excavators can be used for a variety of jobs besides just digging the holes alluded to earlier. They can lift heavy objects, such as pipes, and they can also be used to make quick work of debris removal. Landscapers also find them handy for larger jobs, and with the correct attachments they can even be used to make mulch.

Most rental companies will allow you to rent it from as little as four hours to all the way up to renting it on a monthly basis. You can reserve the equipment over the phone – or even online with some companies – and then either pick it up or have it delivered directly to your job site. Most insurance companies will extend liability to this equipment at no additional charge, but you should check in with your agent just to be sure. Also check with the rental company on what to do if there is a problem. The majority of companies will tell you to call them immediately if there is a mechanical issue (and then “freeze” the clock so you are not paying for the time that the equipment is not working) and send someone out to fix it. Even if you know how to repair it, they will tell you not to do so.
