Those who are aware of the variety of devices and machines that can be rented and analyse the benefits of renting versus buying will opt for the flexibility and cost savings of renting. Very important for the decision is the availability of the desired machine at the desired delivery date as well as the proximity of the rental company to the place of use. AMRENT wants to implement these requirements everywhere.
Renting has the following major benefits over buying:
The liquidity leeway is not restricted as with investments. Liquid funds are not tied up in physical capital, but can be used freely. The equity capital and the existing credit lines with banks are not affected by a rental.
When investing in your own machines, it is often not possible to achieve the level of utilisation required from an economic point of view – this constraint does not apply when renting.
The optimum machine for the application can be selected, because many construction sites always require different rental equipment. Upgrading your own machinery accordingly can be uneconomical.
Careful and timely management of rentals can contribute to a better construction site performance.
Expenses for rental can be deducted as business expenses. They reduce the profit-related taxes in full.
The administrative, personnel and operating costs for service, maintenance and repair are eliminated.
Costs can be calculated on a project basis with manageable costs, as the rental prices are fixed from the outset.
The balance sheet is not extended by borrowing. This improves the balance sheet structure ratios.
Own transport vehicles can be dispensed with because rental companies deliver the machines or provide transporters.
The machines are modern and reliable due to the professional adherence to the service and inspection cycles at the rental company. Failures are therefore rare and are remedied by professional customer service. If there is no damage, after-sales service is included in the rental price.
Instead of buying or leasing, rental equipment can be taken on long-term rental. These are rental periods of 1-2 years, which are used when the utilisation of the machines is high but the investment is not to be made. The commitment to the rented machines is shorter than with purchased or leased machines. Investment risks and the risk of obsolescence are avoided. After the rental period, the machine is returned or exchanged for a new, more modern machine. Machines for a long-term rental are invested for the customer and can be delivered in the customer’s corporate colour.
