Top 4 Reasons to Rent Equipment and Attachments

No matter the situation, renting equipment can be a great option.

Are you looking for a cost-effective solution to remedy a sudden increase in business, want to evaluate adding a forklift to your operation without buying, or have a temporary need for equipment because of a seasonal job?

At HODGE, we have several types of equipment and attachments available to rent. Our rental terms are customized to meet the needs of each customer. Whether it’s a day, week, month or year – we’ll work with you to make sure you have the equipment you need.

Check out some of the benefits of renting equipment from HODGE:

  1. Yours when you need it, ours when you don’t.

    You might not always need a specific piece of equipment, but maybe you have a seasonal job or a sudden increase in business where the equipment would come in handy. You could also make counting inventory easier with a scissor lift or an order picker. Renting will allow you to only pay for the equipment when you need it and save money when you don’t.

  2. Use the right equipment for the job.

    If you run into a temporary situation where a job requires different specifications than your existing equipment can accommodate, renting the right equipment is a great solution to the problem.

  3. Get the equipment you need fast.

    Unfortunately, breakdowns and situations where equipment needs extended service can happen. Don’t let your operation fall behind because your equipment is out of operation. Renting on a short-term lease can be a great option to maintain efficiency even when your equipment is out of service.

  4. Try before you buy.

    Maybe you’ve been thinking about adding equipment to your operation but want to test a few products before making a purchase. Renting can help you decide what works for your business and what specifications are most important to you before purchasing a new or used forklift.
