Almost all kind of heavy equipment can be procured on rent. So you need not buy one but still can possess and use it. You have to compensate it by paying a monthly rent but it makes a lot of sense to pay a nominal amount on each and every month rather than spending a bomb on buying a machine and paying interest to the bank. Moreover when your job demands using different types of heavy equipment, it is certainly not feasible for anybody to shell out all their money buying earth moving machines. You may not have any resource left to operate your business and eventually you will be forced to do away with all the heavy equipment that you have bought. Therefore, limiting yourself to using heavy equipment on rent is probably the most viable option you can opt for.
If you are in the construction business you can’t work without a motor grader. For the grading work you will need a grader and buying one during the initial stage of your business may not sound to be the right option. Though a grader cost lesser than other machines but it still costs a fortune when you are new to the business and needs monetary resources to take care of other responsibilities. So you may go with renting a grader. But before you take it on rent there are few things that you should make a note of. The first and the most important thing that you need to check is the health of the grader. Going for a grader that is not much old should be your priority. They may be a bit expensive when it comes to the rental part but you can always keep the negotiation on to make the stuff fit your budget.
Second is the tenure for which you need the equipment. Analyze your project plan and estimate the duration for which you may need the motor grader. You can then accordingly inform the owner of its duration. It may be possible that the owner is ready to lease it for a short period and you may need it for a longer duration. So there will be a conflict in your needs and might give rise to complications in future. Therefore, before you go to sign the deal be clear on the term and if the owner is ready to rent the machine for that period. This should also be documented in an agreement which is the third most important aspect that you need to take care of while you are procuring a motor grader on rent.
An agreement is a written document that speaks about all those aspects that were agreed by both the parties and has now been put on papers for reference. Take help of an attorney who specializes in making rent agreements. He is the person who knows all the points that needs to be mentioned on the agreement. So once your paperwork is in place, you can have the motor grader shipped to your jobsite.
