Benefits of Long-Term Forklift Rentals

The decision to purchase a forklift is a commitment for a pre-determined amount of time and a pre-determined rate and includes little else. Once you sign on the dotted line, the responsibility for that forklift becomes yours. For some light-use applications where you expect the equipment to experience little abuse, damage or heavy hauling and lifting, this might be an appropriate path. 

For many though, long-term rentals are becoming a more popular choice, for the following reasons:

Cash Conservation – There is no cash outlay to obtain equipment under a Long-Term rental agreement. Save your cash for alternatives that produce profits for your bottom line.

Pay for what you use – Long-Term rental agreements are based upon the expected hours and operating conditions that you will use the equipment. Unlike purchasing equipment where you are paying for 100% of asset (a depreciating
asset), you pay based upon the expected usage rate of the equipment.

Rental payments are 100% tax deductible* – Rental payments are an operating expense and are 100% deductible as a business expense. No confusing depreciation schedules or damaging tax ramifications at years-end. *(consult your
financial adviser to confirm your tax status)

Fixed payments, no maintenance surprises – Long-Term rental agreements typically include normal maintenance. We own the equipment, so maintaining it is our responsibility. Leave the surprises to us and keep your material handling costs consistent and predictable.

Eliminate obsolescence – Long-Term agreements can provide for upgrades should your business change. Don’t get stuck with equipment you no longer need due to a change in your business plans. We will find a home for the old equipment,
and provide you with equipment you need today.

Keep your credit line clear – Unlike financing equipment, Long-Term Rentals have little impact on your ability to borrow money to increase your business.

Flexible terms and equipment – Whether you need new or used equipment for your operation we can provide you with the equipment you need at the terms you need. From one year to eight we can build a Long-Term rental agreement that
meets your business needs.

Renting hedges against inflation – Reduce the risk of labor and parts prices increases by fixing your monthly payment now for the term of your agreement.

Generate cash now – Trading in your current fleet can generate immediate cash for operations.
