What are the benefits of Hitachi Premium Rental?
The European construction equipment rental market has grown rapidly over the past few years – and Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe) (HCME) has increased its rent-to-rent facilities in line with this growth. This is due to the multitude of advantages that this service offers to contractors and businesses alike.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, many contractors have looked towards new, more efficient ways of working and want to get started quickly on new projects. For those who do not want to invest in or purchase machines and equipment, Hitachi Premium Rental could prove to be a valuable alternative.
Renting allows businesses to take on more contracts and ensure they have the equipment needed to complete multiple tasks. The rental period can be adjusted accordingly (as per demand) and can reduce their financial risk over the long term, allowing contractors to be reactive to fluctuating market demands.
Sustainability and environmental responsibility
Premium Rental is also a great example of using machines efficiently to reduce sector-wide emissions. Rental increases the utilisation rate of each item and works better for longer due to local dealer maintenance activities. Most rental machines are also newer and therefore more technologically advanced – meaning they meet the latest sustainability standards of low fuel consumption and low emissions.
The sharing economy is undoubtedly better for the environment and can help businesses to achieve their own, individual sustainability goals as well as those of their customers. In addition, this promotes a recycled economy and a more efficient use of resources.
Rent-to-rent is an opportunity to reduce capital risk and output, especially during times of recent economic instability – allowing customers to pay as they earn, instead of before they earn. Rental payment holidays are also available for those who need it. Premium Rental offers consumers more choice and minimises the burden of ownership by reducing outright costs, maintenance fees and risk.
Rental machines are easy to budget for and do not come with any unexpected costs, as the already reliable models on offer are maintained and serviced by a trusted Hitachi Construction Machinery dealer. In addition, short-term contracts allow businesses to address more time-sensitive projects – earning them more money and work. Arguably, Premium Rental could prove to be the solution for economic uncertainty in an ever-evolving industry.
