Hiring Versus Buying

Anyone running a business will want to be as financially savvy as possible, and business owners in the construction sector are no exception to the rule. When it comes to construction

and building equipment, a business needs to decide whether hiring or buying plant machinery is more cost efficient.



Buying machinery outright can be advantageous for many reasons, including the following:

  • Your business will own the machinery outright

  • You will have more flexibility in how you deploy it on construction sites

  • You will have equipment ready at little notice

  • You will have no paperwork to deal with once you have bought the equipment, saving on admin

  • Your company does not need to be VAT registered to buy equipment



There are also many arguments for hiring construction and building equipment over buying, and these include:

  • Only paying for the machinery when you need it will mean you only have to spend money for services that you will use there and then

  • Money, time and resources will be saved on maintenance as this will be done by the hire company

  • You can be certain that all machinery has been serviced and in full working order

  • The benefit of being able to offset hiring costs against taxes

  • If repairs or updates are needed, they can be made easily and simply by the company you are hiring from

  • You can benefit from the knowledge of a company who work with the equipment everyday
