There is a lot of hearsay and speculation when it comes to hiring plant equipment for large, ongoing or one-off projects.
There are many, and we mean many plant equipments hire companies to choose from, which makes finding the right information from a trusted source vital, (if you’re to avoid unnecessary expenses.)
This can especially be the case if you’re considering buying new equipment or renting machinery, as a mix of information can be found, depending on the salesperson you’re speaking too!
However, if your project is well underway or even just about to start, and you find that you’re missing vital tools and plant equipment that will not only make you and your teams lives easier but in essence will keep the project moving along, do you really want to be purchasing these pieces hastily and taking away from your bottom line, when you can hire high-quality and in some cases new machinery instead?
In this post, we want to separate fact from fiction, providing you with some high-quality and proven facts about hiring plant equipment, so you can make the best decision for you and your project.
FACT: Renting equipment doesn’t have to be expensive
Many people we speak to believe that renting plant equipment isn’t cheap.
But we believe they don’t always have the full picture.
Yes, the cost of renting equipment does depend on varying factors. For example, how long do you need the equipment for?
If it’s going to be for a long period of time, and we mean a seriously long period, and you’re using one of the basic pieces of heavy machinery which will also be used for future projects too, then yes, in the long-run renting could work out to be slightly more expensive.
But, if you’re using equipment only a handful of times, for short periods, or require a more specialist tool for a particular project, then renting is the perfect fit and is a much cheaper option.
To help with your expense predictions when calculating the cost of your overall project, the first thing is to list out each stage of the project, highlighting what plant equipment would be necessary to complete each stage. You’ll then be able to see with more clarity what equipment you already have and what equipment you require for new and different projects.

FACT: You can rent some of the latest plant equipment around
Renting plant equipment doesn’t mean renting old, used, and worn pieces of machinery.
In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
Renting offers you a much wider choice and the pick of some of the latest models and new machinery available.
This is because it is more cost-effective. Renting new equipment is by far much cheaper than forking out thousands to buy a new machine or heavy-duty piece of equipment.
Plus, as the plant hire market is so competitive, no professional hire plant can afford to rent out unreliable and worn-out equipment. What’s more, if you have a long-term relationship and contract with the supplier in question, they will more than likely also replace old models for new when they come into stock.
Renting plant equipment from the professionals at Addplant couldn’t be simpler. With experienced and qualified staff to help you when you need it, we make the whole process of hiring plant equipment as smooth as possible from start to finish.
