The sharing economy is gaining momentum, and new winds are blowing in the construction sector.

Full-service leasing of heavy machinery is a legitimate activity for a modern and optimised company. Especially in today’s market situation.

Firstly, full-service leasing allows heavy equipment to be used on an as-needed basis and without large investments. Secondly, the smooth operation and maintenance of heavy machinery is ensured.

In this blog post, we’ve put together 10 ways that full-service heavy equipment rental makes life easier, more efficient and more convenient for construction companies.

1. Lower initial capital requirements

One of the biggest advantages of full-service leasing for heavy equipment is that it no longer requires a large amount of upfront capital for expensive heavy equipment with high maintenance costs. There is also no need to tie the business down to long-term commitments, fluctuating Euribor rates or machine changes, with the time and money lost.

With full-service rental, you can bring exactly the machines you need to the site, as and when you need them.

2. Easy to budget

The fee for the period of a full-service lease is stable and predictable, allowing, for example, construction estimators to plan project budgets more profitably. You don’t have to worry about unexpected repairs or equipment wear and tear, as the equipment rental company is responsible for all of this.

3. Operate with state-of-the-art technology

Frequent renewal of the machinery fleet is not economically viable for many construction companies, as machines lose value as soon as they leave the dealership. Not to mention additional equipment that is only used a few times a year for specific jobs.

For the lessor, however, the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment and specific accessories is essential. This may be the use of a centralised system for setting machinery and the presence of a mast or stake and specialised trailers.

4. Hassle-free maintenance and repair

Frequent renewal of the machinery fleet is not economically viable for many construction companies, as machines lose value as soon as they leave the dealership. Not to mention additional equipment that is only used a few times a year for specific jobs.

For the lessor, however, the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment and specific accessories is essential. This may be the use of a centralised system for setting machinery and the presence of a mast or stake and specialised trailers.

5. Quick access to an efficient fleet of machinery

A very good full-service partner upgrades its fleet in a way that increases the productivity and competitiveness of the lessee.

Imagine that your day-to-day work on a site requires you to travel long distances. Instead of using a machine that can travel at 10-20 km/h, you use a rental machine that can travel at 30 km/h. Efficiency increases by 50-200% over different distances. More economical engines and lower fuel consumption, for example, also increase efficiency.

6. Fewer risks you need to hedge

Owning machinery can lead to a variety of risks and unexpected costs, including depreciation, theft and accidents. In the case of a full service contract, these risks are transferred to the service provider, who is responsible for the equipment.

7. Lessor’s 24/7 guarantee

In the event of a breakdown, a reliable partner will guarantee you the transport of an equivalent machine to your site within 24 hours. Regardless of whether it is an accident at work, a traffic accident or a crime. You’ve counted on getting the job done on time – your partner must be ready to support you.

8. Be more flexible between projects

If your company operates on a seasonal or project basis, a full-service lease allows you to tailor your fleet to your needs. You can hire more or less equipment, depending on the number of projects and their scope.

9. A partner you can count on

It’s the heavy machinery that most construction companies are not happy to deal with themselves. Therefore, it is appropriate that the partner you are working with is willing to listen to you and proactively propose solutions to problems that arise.

10. Hire with driver and cleaning and excavation services

Sometimes a machine is not enough. There is also a lack of a suitable manager to call on site as needed. This is where a full-service lease with a driver comes into play, whereby the service provider not only provides the machine, but also machine operators with an average of +10 years of experience to carry out the work quickly and to a high standard.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


It can be said that full-service leasing of heavy equipment allows smart companies to be more flexible, efficient and profitable. This is useful, for example, in procurement and service tenders in general.

By deploying technology according to the workload and need, it reduces risk while maintaining control over the company’s finances. In the current economic climate, solutions need to be found to keep the cost of ownership down – full service leasing of heavy equipment is one way to achieve this.
