The Benefits Of Contract Hire Over Purchasing Your Industrial Cleaning Equipment

More and more companies are choosing contract hire over purchasing their industrial cleaning equipment and are subsequently seeing the huge benefits that come with that decision. At Karcher Hire, we offer our clients a range of contracts to suit their exact needs.

Thinking about hiring industrial cleaning equipment? Here are just a few reasons it’s worth doing.

More Cost-Effective

You can get yourself a good deal when you buy a cleaning machine, but opting for contract hire is actually more cost-effective. Like when cars are first driven off the forecourt and they instantly lose a percentage of their value, the same goes for cleaning machines. Buying outright means you have to make a large expenditure up front that you’re never going to make back – even if you sell it on. With contract hire, you spread the cost over a predetermined length of time and you get to take advantage of so many extras such as breakdown cover, training and upgrade options.

Delivery & Collection

When you hire a cleaning machine from Karcher Hire, we take care of the delivery for you so all you have to do is sit back and wait for your machine to arrive. Similarly, when your contract term is up, we’ll collect the machine from you. It’s completely hassle-free.

Breakdowns Are Covered

Not only do we cover breakdowns, saving you money, we have a priority service for breakdown for all our contract hire clients. If a breakdown occurs we fix the problem within 48 hours. If it can’t be done in the that time we provide a loan machine as standard.

Full Training Is Given

When you’re upgrading to a new model or hiring a machine for the very first time, we know it’s unreasonable to expect you to know how to use it competently from the get-go. That’s why we provide full training to ensure you get the most out of your cleaning machine. Knowing how to use your machine correctly will reduce the likelihood of breakdowns or faults occurring from improper usage.

Complete Convenience

We provide replacement parts should something happen to your machine and offer 24 hour support services for your complete convenience – something that you don’t usually get once you’ve purchased a cleaning machine. We know how frustrating it can be to be without one of your vital cleaning machines which is why we aim to get parts out to you and fix any problems within 48 hours. If we can’t we’ll send you a machine in the meantime so you’re never without.


We give our clients the option of determining their own contract length. So you don’t end up stuck with a machine that hasn’t fit the needs of your business for months. You can choose 3 months, 6 months, a year, three years of even five years – it’s completely up to you. It’s this flexibility that you don’t get once you’ve purchased a machine, as once you’ve bought it you’ve bought it.

Upgrade Options

Here at Karcher Hire, we appreciate that the needs of a business can change over time. You may need one type of machine for a length of time, but find that something else is needed further down the line. With contract hire, you can opt for a different machine at the end of your term allowing you to adapt to the changing needs of your business. You can also take advantage of any new models that have been manufactured in the meantime.
