Should I Rent or Buy Used Forklifts?

This can be a very complex question and there are obvious advantages and disadvantages of both options.

The benefits of Forklift Fleet Management vary from industry to industry, the main points are summarised below for your consideration.

Financially

  • Capital Gain is realised when your existing equipment is purchased turning assets into cash
  • Rental charges are part of your operating costs and therefore are 100% tax deductible
  • Lines of credit are enhanced as rental payments are not required to be shown as liabilities on financial statements
  • Costs can be controlled with rental fees established up front which incorporate repair and maintenance costs facilitating accurate budgeting

Productivity

  • Availability of equipment is guarantied with replacement equipment supplied, at no additional cost, in instances of equipment failure
  • Flexibility can be built into fleet management to ensure seasonal requirements can be met cost effectively allowing your equipment to increase and decrease to meet your needs
  • Regular consultancy and planning in terms of programmed maintenance timing and additional equipment requirements will provide optimum equipment availability

Administration

  • Elimination of all administrative duties associated with record keeping, maintenance and compliance with OH&S standards.

Simplicity

  • Your responsibilities are limited to manning the equipment and meeting basic operating costs
