What Do You Need To Rent Construction Equipment?
Renting construction equipment is very easy if you have everything you need to be prepped in advance. Below are our recommendations for everything you need to make sure your rental experience goes smoothly from start to finish.
Ensure Credit Approval and Have Your Payment Ready
Most construction equipment dealers will request the payment for your rental upfront, or they may direct you to set up an account with them. Prior to choosing the equipment you would like to rent and the time frame needed, make sure to have your payment method ready to cover the cost of the rental. If you are not 100% sure that you will get the credit approval to rent the equipment, make sure to reach out to the construction equipment dealer’s rental department to learn about all of their options for renting.
Delivery of The Construction Equipment Rental
Generally, many construction equipment rental companies will require that you pay for delivery to the location, so it is important to have a plan for transportation and factor in the costs associated with your budget. If you do not have the ability to transport the equipment, make sure to reach out to the rental company to ask for their recommendations or assistance in the delivery.
Insurance For Renting Equipment
In most cases, proof of insurance is required for construction equipment rentals. Make sure to discuss this with your insurance provider prior to engaging with a rental company. If you do not have an insurance provider, we recommend reaching out to the equipment rental company to learn more about their recommendation for insurance.
Terms and Agreement for Renting Equipment
Carefully review the rental agreement before signing. All rental agreements will outline the terms, and it is important to understand all details and identify any hidden fees that are not obvious, like cleaning and potential repair fees. Make sure to discuss all questions or concerns with the rental company before signing.
Responsibility for Rental Equipment Damages
It is important to keep the equipment in excellent condition throughout the duration of your rental period. Generally, you will not be charged for normal wear and tear, but if there are any damages that resulted because of great negligence, you will be charged. If any damage occurs while you are operating the rental, make sure to notify your insurance company immediately.
