Heavy equipments being an expensive affair, not many construction houses are able to invest their money buying them. Other than that, some businesses work on contract basis which means that they do not have projects all months along and still have to continue repaying the monthly installments taken from the bank as a business loan. This can certainly hit their finances hard and continuing business may become all the more difficult for small businessmen. Perhaps, the only way to tackle this situation is to take the equipment on rent for the period you need the stuff and then return it to the owner. No wonder, you have to pay the price for using the equipment; however that would be miniscule if compared to having to buy one in its place.
