In the current economic climate, businesses of all sizes are looking for ways to reduce costs and maximise profits. Whether you’re an SME or a large corporation, making your money go further is crucial to the success of your business. That’s why more and more people are choosing to hire their industrial cleaning equipment, rather than buying the machines outright.
The initial attraction is the short-term cash flow increase but there are additional long-term benefits that are not often discussed.
Maintaining and servicing your own cleaning equipment can take away precious time needed in other areas of your business. If repairs every crop up, they can be extremely time-consuming, not to mention costly, and the downtime can be detrimental to your business. However, through hiring your cleaning equipment, all your maintenance and servicing needs are included as standard, repairs can be swiftly carried out and in the event that your machine is beyond repair, a new machine will be provided.
Convenience and flexibility
Hiring your industrial cleaning equipment means that more often than not, your chosen equipment is with you as soon as the next working day; with delivery straight to your door. If you’re unsure of the specific machine, or machines, you require, hiring means you get the expertise of those in the know who can listen to your individual needs and recommend the right machine for you. A visit to your site can even be arranged. To ensure you get the most out of your cleaning equipment, full training is provided to all your operatives. This means once you have your equipment you can get using it straight away.
Hiring industrial cleaning equipment also gives you the flexibility to choose how long you want your machines for. A week? A few months? Years? It’s completely up to you.
Try before you buy
Perhaps one of the least highlighted benefits of hiring cleaning equipment is to try before you buy. Purchasing industrial cleaning machinery is a huge commitment for any size business so it makes sense for you to be able to trial a machine for a few weeks to make sure it’s exactly what you need. Through hiring, you get a trial run to see how it fits with your business. Then you can be sure your spending your money wisely.
We mentioned early on in the article that increased short-term cash flow was an initial draw for hiring cleaning equipment but there’s actually significant long-term savings that can be seen through opting for hire instead of purchasing. First and foremost, there’s no getting away from the fact that high-end industrial cleaning equipment is expensive to buy. When you factor in maintenance costs and repairs on top of the initial cost, the fees begin to spiral. Choosing to hire negates any significant upfront cost, freeing up capital to be used elsewhere. With services, repairs and maintenance included in your hire fee, you can begin to see how much more cost-effective it is to hire industrial cleaning equipment.
