There are several Reasons why equipment rental is the best choice for your business

MAINTENANCE

Equipment rented on a day-to-day basis includes full maintenance, relieving you of the need for repair shops, mechanics, spare parts inventory and maintenance records.

BREAKDOWN

Rental allows you to avoid the time and money lost due to breakdowns. At Total Tool, if rented equipment breaks down, we’ll replace it for you at no cost.

WAREHOUSING

Warehouse facilities are seldom needed for rental equipment, making it possible for contractors to operate with less overhead.

MOBILITY

Availability and convenience have become strong arguments for rental. Bidding on jobs several hundred miles away based on renting equipment near the jobsite is ideal for contractors.

COST CONTROL

Better cost control is possible with rented equipment. Knowing the true cost of owned equipment is difficult. Rented equipment offers one accountable cost figure shown on the rental invoice.

DISPOSAL COSTS

Preparing for the resale, advertising and selling of obsolete equipment are non-factors when you rent.

OBSOLESCENCE

Equipment rental businesses provide the latest types and models of equipment, thus eliminating obsolescence.

MINIMUM EQUIPMENT FOR THE JOB

Equipment ownership can be expensive, especially when the equipment is idle. This problem can be minimized when ownership of basic equipment is combined, as needed, with rental.

PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES AND LICENSES

There are no personal property taxes or license costs for rented equipment.

CONSERVATION OF CAPITAL

Rental conserves and frees capital for other potentially more profitable uses.

INCREASES BORROWING CAPACITY

Since rental equipment does not appear as a liability on a balance sheet, the normal bank credit is not disturbed. This can be important in securing construction bonds.

RENTAL PACKAGES

Need more than one tool or machine? We’re happy to customize a multi-unit rental package for your job. Whether it’s plant shutdowns, turnaround or short term jobs, this may be a perfect option.
