There are many plant hire companies in South Africa looking to profit from the lucrative industry that plant hire has evolved into over the years. But how many of those companies are really in it for the long haul, and who is really interested in offer true value-for-money and tangible value to their customers? These questions make choosing your plant hire company a bit more difficult, when you get past all the marketing hoopla and truly investigate what you will receive for your money and loyalty.
So, let us look at ways you can get more from your plant hire company and how to choose which company to partner with. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind:
- Logistics: Does your plant hire company offer to deliver and collect the equipment to you on site? Or do you have to take care of the logistics yourself? This is an obvious big point to consider. At times the plant equipment you will need might be big awkward to transport and if you are tasked with that responsibility, it can add to your overhead and distract you from your project – both of which is the last thing any foreman can afford.
- Reliable equipment: Downtime not only costs you valuable site time, but it can also cost you your clients’ goodwill. It won’t matter why you are behind project deadline; the only thing your client will see is that you are not meeting the milestones. One of the best ways to guarantee falling behind schedule is because of unplanned downtime due to equipment and tool failure. Does your plant hire company offer serviced, reliable and quality tools and equipment?
- Industry expertise and national representation: Partnering with a plant hire company with a national footprint means that you are dealing with an industry leading company that has the resources and expertise to help you access the equipment you need.
