The many reasons why it pays to invest in generator hire
It’s unfortunate that South Africa has a rocky history when it comes to consistent power supply. However, instead of living in hope that a power failure or load shedding won’t affect your company in future, it’s the responsible thing to do to have measures in place that will safeguard you against the devastation and havoc that a cut in power can cause your business.
For many modern day South African companies, the need to keep overheads low is a priority. At times this can mean owning, instead of renting, essential equipment and machinery that you often need to make use of. However, there are exceptions to this. With generators, for instance, there are numerous advantages to making use of generator hire instead of purchasing one outright for your business. There are many instances in which generator hire can end up being more cost-effective than owning one outright.
The reason for this is because purchasing a generator will require a rather large capital outlay from the company, one that will remain on your company’s balance sheet for a while. When you make use of generator hire you only pay for when you need it.
Incredible flexibility of generator hire and maintenance
When making use of generator hire you will enjoy far greater flexibility. When your business grows and you receive more contracts, you can easily increase your generator hire contracts. However if your business enters a slow season during the year – such as over the festive season – you can make arrangement with your hire company to allow for this change in demand.
Keep in mind that if you do decide to purchase rather than hire, the initial capital outlay won’t be your only cost. Instead, your company will be responsible for the ongoing maintenance and repair costs of the generator. This can quickly become a logistical annoyance and unforeseen expense. In contrast, when using a hiring service the service company will be responsible for seeing to the maintenance and upkeep of the unit. This means that you can continue with the important income-generating tasks of running your business and let the hire company make sure that all your generators are in top working condition.
