Hiring access equipment can make your life easier on many levels, and in this article, we will discuss the benefits to be had. We will also mention the advantages and disadvantages of access equipment for sale. Often, the benefits of access equipment hire win out, and we’ll explain why. 


How to choose the right equipment for the job

Before hiring access equipment, you need to know various things to ensure you choose the most suitable machines for your needs. The worksite conditions have much to do with which equipment is right for you. Keeping your eye on the fine print in access equipment hire agreements will save you trouble down the track, as well as vetting access hire companies by their online reviews. You should find out what support is available during your rental and who is liable if a machine breaks down or is stolen. 


Choosing the right provider


Pay attention to reviews

High stakes are involved when you’re looking for an access hire company to do business with. If you don’t do your research, you could end up with faulty equipment or machines delivered late, affecting job efficiency and perhaps even resulting in a bad injury to one of your workers. It’s essential to find a company you can trust so that you have the support you need to do your best work. One way of separating the weed from the chaff is to check out the Google reviews for any potential companies you may work with. Hearing first-hand opinions from past customers of an access hire company is often the best way to understand their reputation.


Ask what support is provided

Before you choose an access hire company, it’s vital to know what support is given to their customers, as their attitude to customer service could affect your timeline and budget. At All Star, we prioritise customer satisfaction, which is why we offer a 24/7 customer support line. We are always there to help you, no matter what time of the day or night. When you call us on that line, we come straight to your site and either fix the problem machine or switch it to a perfectly operational one. With All Star by your side, you’ll never be at a loss for fully functional access hire equipment.


Get familiar with the Terms & Conditions

Even when you have done your due diligence by choosing an access hire company with a high rating on Google, you still need to pay attention when it comes to the terms and conditions of hire. Make sure you read that fine print and find out if anything is surprising. It’s better to know now any responsibilities or liabilities you might face according to the contract. Otherwise, they may catch you unawares, potentially harming your project. Read the terms and conditions, and if you have any questions, ask the access hire company or consult your lawyer.


Benefits of access equipment hire 

There are two routes you can take when you need access hire equipment. You can rent, or you can seek out access equipment for sale. There are advantages to both. When buying, you have complete control over your equipment. However, you also need to have a place to store it, take the time to maintain it, and transport it to worksites yourself. Also, access equipment for sale takes a large amount of capital to buy, which can occupy money that could be better spent elsewhere in your business. 

At All Star, we keep our young fleet in immaculate condition with regular maintenance and 10-year testing conducted without fail. We also provide transport services for all our equipment, so it arrives on time right when you need it. We offer onsite assessments to ensure you hire the right equipment for your application to optimise safety and efficiency.
