For the larger ProjectsThere are companies in South Africa that really go big with their offerings in response to demand. Take cranes for instance. Even large Civil works companies make use of Plant Hire and what they get in return is a service that delivers, erects, services and repairs on site and when the job is done, they dismantle.
Earthmoving equipment is another that comes to mind, these cumbersome vehicles are a prerequisite for many large civil works, yet owning and running these behemoths can be costly and risky. For a fraction of the costs of owning, they get a machine that is always in good running order, on site and working the hours they need it to be working. And when they are done, it goes back to where it came from. There is no need to keep large storage facilities and no need to have machinery sitting around idle between projects.
If you have need of tippers, loaders or 2.5 tonne rollers, excavators, 40 tonne lowebed’s, water trucks or graders but don’t have the budget to buy, then the solution is to hire.
When you consider that giants in the civil engineering community such as companies like Murray & Roberts, Stefanutti Stocks, Basil Read or Grinaker-LTA make use of Plant hire, they obviously know what they’re doing.
