If you are considering purchasing heavy construction or maintenance equipment for your railroad track business, then you may want to think again. This is because it is generally a better idea to rent railroad track maintenance equipment than it is to buy. There are many reasons why this is so.
No Large Upfront Expense
Maintenance equipment is very expensive and when you buy it, there is a huge upfront cost to which you are committing. This can drain the business of much-needed liquid funds. If you rent, however, you only pay for the time that you are actually using the equipment. For new or smaller companies, it is a much wiser decision.
Whenever you buy equipment, you will suffer from what is known as depreciation. Meaning it never gains value, it only loses value. Renters do not have this concern, however, as they are never owners of the equipment so it doesn’t matter to them what the value of the equipment might be.
No Maintenance Or Repair Costs
As an owner, you are 100% responsible for any repairs or upkeep that the railroad track maintenance equipment needs. This can get costly and also adds to the original purchase price, which was expensive to begin with. When you rent the equipment, however, the rental company is the one responsible for necessary repairs.
