Hiring equipment makes sense for one-off jobs and events

Everything in life is impermanent, and for mostly good reasons. Fashions and designs are changing all the time, and society’s demands are ever-evolving. Events and gatherings, whether private, corporate or commercial, come and go, together with the equipment needed to host such events.  Whether you are planning on hosting a memorable business or family event for a large gathering, or looking for the necessary equipment to assist you in building or renovation work, your best option would be to hire the equipment needed and save yourself time, trouble, effort and unnecessary major cost. Private individuals and companies alike sometimes have the need to bring in additional equipment to assist in the completion of particular jobs for a limited period, but do not need the equipment on a permanent basis, so it is an economic decision in many cases to simply hire – or rent – the equipment as needed.

Make use of hired plant for maximum convenience

Machinery, equipment or tool hire/rental, also referred to as plant hire, is a thriving industry globally. This is a service industry which provides machinery, tools of all kinds and sizes and equipment for a specified time period to users who need them. This saves companies and individuals from having to fund the high cost of purchasing tools, machinery, etc. which they will not be using on a regular or even repeated basis. It makes sense, for instance, to hire an industrial cement mixer if you are building a small structure, but will not need large quantities of mixed and ready-to-go cement once the structure is complete. There is a definite bonus in that you will not have to pay for ongoing maintenance of any type of equipment which you do not use regularly, as all equipment is thoroughly safety- and mechanically-checked by the hire company before you use it. And if it breaks down - whilst this may be inconvenient - it will usually be replaced by the hire company with working equipment within a very short period.

To a large extent, even today, when talking about equipment hire, people automatically think of the construction or DIY industry, but there is so much more to equipment hire as it spans many industries and private individual needs.

Don’t “fork out” on catering equipment purchase costs for occasional events

There is a growing offshoot of equipment hire which provides catering equipment, including portable catering or cooking equipment such as beverage dispensers, serving trays, chafing dishes, portable electric, gas or induction cooking hobs, portable ice-making equipment, fridges, etc.

Catering equipment usually includes tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and all other linens such as napkins and tablecloths. 

Throw the best parties under a hired marquee

Setting up a baby shower or engagement party but have no space in the house? Go for impact and hire a marquee with all the trimmings! Many functions which are catered take place outdoors under the shelter of marquees, party and stretch tents, which are great in areas where the weather is unreliable, and especially if the event is to be held after dark. These are wonderful to hire, but you probably would never consider buying such costly items for very seldom held events and gatherings. There are hire companies which provide equipment for children’s parties, including themed jumping castles (even one shaped like a ship!), jungle-gyms or helium canisters for fun balloons, ball ponds, pop-up children’s play houses, age-related tables and chairs, amongst many other options. 

Need medical equipment for a limited period? Hire it!

The medical field is also well catered for by hire service companies which rent out walking sticks, wheelchairs, commodes, walkers, portable oxygen tanks, hospital beds, toilet-seat raisers, together with many other necessary aids which are usually only needed for a limited time. 

How do I find the right equipment hire services?

Check their online ratings and customer reviews

The range of equipment which can be hired seems to be growing all the time. It is a growing niche which is rapidly gaining popularity amongst all spheres. As such, these equipment hire companies are expanding their presence more into web advertisements. You can find plenty of them by searching the internet, but save time and cut your search down even further by using a search site like Uptasker, which will give you listings in your own particular location since this site lists in geographical areas, as well as providing customer reviews and online ratings. Where the suppliers have a website, you will find very convenient one-click links to these. You can also request online quotations, making it easier for you to compare pricing and amenities available. If you prefer the traditional methods, look for adverts in Architectural Digests, House and Home, mom and toddler and general interest magazines, medical brochures and publications, or look through the Yellow Pages, on community noticeboards and ask your colleagues, friends or neighbours if they have any recommendations.

Top equipment hire service tips

Don’t let yourself be limited by the equipment that you own when it comes to planning smaller renovations or DIY jobs, planning a memorable catered “big bash” for a special birthday or celebratory event, or assisting with equipment which will make your aged parents or family members more comfortable. Even if it is simply a matter of undergoing an operation which requires being physically challenged, such as being on crutches or in a wheelchair during the recuperation period, you will find an equipment hire service which will be able to assist you. Hosting special events, undertaking DIY projects or remaining more mobile whilst recovering from surgery are all more affordable when you can hire the equipment you need rather than spending your hard-earned cash on something which you know you will only require for a limited time.
