Buying construction equipments is not the only option considering the project costs, guidelines, time frames and the execution roadmap. Things need to be planned well in advance keeping in mind the commercials and complexities involved. A construction site has various demands for different tasks needed to be carried out on a scheduled basis. There are requirements for tractors, booms, backhoes, skid steers, crawlers, bulldozers, cranes, trenchers, etc. for various processes to be executed so that the project is completed on time, maintaining all the quality guidelines and the whole process is seamless.
Equipments and machinery vary so much in their functions and size that there has to be clarity before you list out the number of equipments to be bought or leased. Considering the costs of the machinery equipments and the depreciation it attracts every year, individuals and companies sometimes contemplate leasing equipments for execution of their projects.

This is one of the biggest advantages of leasing equipments – you always have the latest technology at your disposal and it rests with you whether you want to have frequent upgrades of your equipments which might not be very practical if you buy those out.
Companies like Caterpillar and John Deere have rental facility which is directly provided by them. Similarly, there are many top manufacturers that render rental services. These rentals are on contractual basis and many a times it happens that even complete maintenance is borne by the companies.
