How To Rent Survey Equipment From Superior Instrument

When you're out in the marketplace looking to buy land surveying equipment, never has this old-time adage been truer: Cheap things aren't good and good things aren't cheap! When you're dealing with high-quality surveying equipment, you're looking at precision instruments required to have uncompromising accuracy, which naturally comes with a significant price tag.

Buying Alternatives

If you're planning on using your surveying equipment on a fairly continual basis, owning it may be the best alternative. At Superior Instrument, we offer the highest-quality, most accurate precision-made surveying equipment out there, yet we're able to sell it at fair, competitive prices.

If you don't have a continual need for certain surveying items but may require several different items on a more occasional basis, then renting may be the most appropriate solution for you. Owning an expensive piece of equipment that sits idle most of the time may be an inappropriate use of needed funds. Many experts agree that a realistic benchmark for owning rather than renting is when an item in your equipment inventory is needed or used between 60-70% of the time.

Making a large capital investment in something like a laser-controlled bulldozer that may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase doesn't make sense if that piece of equipment is only utilized occasionally. A rental rate of less than $800 per day, $2000 per week or $5000 per month makes much more sense if you only require the use of a laser-controlled bulldozer a few times a month or fewer. One of the major advantages given for renting vs buying is saving money. Others include the following:

  • Allows for temporary increases in production
  • Satisfies short-term equipment needs
  • Helps to meet a sudden deadline crunch
  • Eliminates your need to provide service or maintenance
  • Fills in when your regular equipment requires maintenance or has failed
  • Allows for specialty performance with equipment used to fulfill certain unique job requirements
