Every year, as the seasons change from winter to spring, we all become motivated to take on those many projects in and around our homes.  Hiring a professional is one option to tackling your project, but many times that can be very expensive; whereas doing the project yourself and renting equipment to complete the job can be the better, cost-effective option.

So, why does renting make sense?

Well, imagine you have a garage or shed with every tool you can imagine.  You just walk in and get exactly the right tool for the job.  That is what a full service rental store is – that large garage with the tools you need, when you need them, ensuring the right equipment for the job.

Then imagine having someone willing to offer useful advice and tips to get you started on your project the right way.  Again, that is what a full service rental store does – you won’t have to spend hours researching or reading a manual trying to figure out how to select or use the right equipment for your job.

Another advantage to renting equipment is you don’t need to worry about storing the equipment or having it sit in a corner or on a shelf in your garage gathering dust – when your finished, you simply return it to the rental store.

You also don’t need to worry about maintenance – rental equipment includes full service and maintenance.  Since all equipment is subject to occasional breakdowns, when rental equipment fails it can be replaced and your repair costs are eliminated.

Renting also gives you the opportunity to use top of the line tools and equipment rather than buying and using cheaper low-cost equipment, designed not to last.  Renting the equipment you need is a fast, easy and cost-effective solution to getting your job done.

Choosing to rent equipment for your projects really does make sense.  Otherwise, you can find yourself spending more time shopping for the right tool at the best price instead of getting the job done.  At Bunce Rental we have your equipment rental needs covered.  Our equipment rental specialists are here to provide you with all the information you need to select the right equipment to help complete your job.

Remember, it makes sense to rent!

Now that spring is knocking on the door. It’s time to start thinking about your first lawn and garden project. With that said, I always remind people to “work smarter, not harder”. When you decide to start a project, take a moment to see what your working conditions will be to start with.

For example:

  • Do you kn0w where your phone line, electrical power line, and gas line is buried ? Rent a locator or hire someone to find it before you start to dig.
  • Will you be using the machine on a slope or hill? What precautions should you take to ensure safe operation of the machine?
  • Has your garden soil been tilled recently? If not, the soil is probably hard packed; make the job easier with a rear tine tiller. (See Rototiller Rundown for more information on this subject)

Plan the job out ahead of time and put safety first; the job will run smoother and safer.
