Save Money on Construction Equipment


If you’re embarking on a renovation project or a landscaping project, then you’ve probably realized that construction equipment can be costly. Our short guide to the different options that you have will hopefully help you to save money and make that project all the more satisfying.
Buying Construction Equipment 
Buying your construction equipment is a big investment that is probably only worthwhile if you plan on doing a lot of construction work on your property, or if you plan on going into business.
You have two options when it comes to buying construction equipment, new or used. Buying new will be more expensive, but you will probably have the latest in technology and security. You may even get a guarantee with your new machine, making it a safe bet.
Buying used, however, might be a much more viable option. It does take more time and research than buying used might. When buying used, you should always test it out, and inspect it thoroughly. If the engine doesn’t work, or produces a lot of smoke, be wary, and don’t be convinced by the owner or the dealer – this one is definitely a dud. Check for leaking fluid, welds and strange noises, and if the machine exhibits any of these signs, then back out.
Buying used can be extremely good value for money however, just like cars. You can find relatively new machines for a much lower price than at new. A great place to check is These machines are a well known brand, so buying parts and replacements will be much easier.
When you’ve finished with your machines you can simply sell online, back through Scot JCB, or at an auction.
Renting Machines
Another option might be to rent equipment. This is good if your project is relatively short term and you don’t want to risk not being able to sell. However, you need to look after the equipment and avoid damaging it in anyway.
It also means, however, that there are a variety of different things that you need to check before you rent. You need to check the quality of machines before you rent them, and the response time from the company. You want good quality machines that will be fixed as quickly as possible. Think about the fees that you might be charged, too, and make sure that you are fully aware of all issues.
