Renting construction equipment should be straightforward and hassle free. By being prepared and knowing the rental requirements, you can speed up the rental process and get back to work quickly.
Rental Equipment Delivery
In most cases, there is a delivery fee, so make arrangements to pick up the construction equipment that you are renting, if you can. Otherwise, provide the location and agree on a time for the equipment to arrive. Remember to take the delivery schedule into account when planning your job.
Rental Equipment Insurance
Insurance is required for rentals, so contact your insurance provider to confirm that rentals are included in your policy. If you don’t have an insurance policy, you can usually add on insurance to your rental agreement.
Contract for Rental Equipment
Review the rental contract carefully before you sign it. This document contains important information on your responsibilities while the equipment is under your control. It may also contain additional fees like cleaning, and repair and maintenance fees. If you have questions about any of the information in the rental agreement, be sure to ask before you sign it.
Damage Responsibility for Rental Equipment
Take care of the construction equipment you rent, as though it’s your own. You aren’t typically charged for damage due to problems with the machine or normal wear and tear, but abuse or negligence of the equipment can lead to additional fees. Excessive staining or cosmetic damage necessitating additional cleanup often incurs an additional charge. If the construction equipment is damaged while you are using it, be sure to document the damage and immediately notify your insurance carrier and Southeastern Equipment.
