Many considerations have to be made before you hire a plant. All construction projects are different in terms of size and scope. Some plant hires are more affordable and practical for specific construction projects than others.
Let’s explore the top three considerations for hiring a plant.
1) Choose New and Modern Equipment
Some plant hire companies will rent out old machinery and equipment. You might find cheaper rates hiring older machinery, but it probably won’t function properly. Older machinery usually needs repairs and maintenance, which these companies don’t always perform.
Therefore, you’re much better off with plant hires consisting of modern and up-to-date equipment and machinery.
2) Accredited Operators Included
Are you entirely CITB and CPCS accredited to operate machinery? If not, you’ll want to ensure your plant hires come with CITB and CPCS accredited operators. These accreditations prove they know how to operate machines safely and securely.
Accredited operators also must receive continuous education to ensure they understand the latest health and safety issues regarding machine operations.
3) Credit Accounts Available
No one expects you to have the cash available when you want to hire the machinery and equipment. That is why it would be more convenient to find a plant hire company that allows you to open a credit account with them. Then you can pay your invoice after hiring the plant rather than before.
