One of the biggest advantages of hiring is that you only pay for the cost of using the air compressor for a specific time period, which avoids investing in the full value of the equipment.
Renting also removes the need to organise servicing separately, as the maintenance of the compressor will remain with the air compressor supplier. You will then be guaranteed a level of service maintenance for the duration of your rental.
Depending on the size of your business or the operational requirements, getting sign off for a new compressor can often be time consuming, including extensive research and going to tender. It can be much quicker to organise a compressor hire as it will fulfil your business needs without requiring full capital cost. A rental solution can also form supporting evidence for a service provider who can demonstrate their value during the rental period.
There are also a few scenarios when the ability to rent an air compressor can be very practical and useful:
• Repairs on current compressor are going to take longer than expected, and may need to be taken away to further diagnose;
• Factory is relocating so temporary air is required;
• New equipment is on order and may need temporary standby compressor;
• Temporary compressed air installation.
