Clean Sweep UK discusses the benefits of hiring cleaning equipment rather than purchasing it.

Cleaning equipment has historically been purchased by end users and contractors alike.

The benefits of hiring are often not known; the company claims that no one takes the time to examine the financial and commercial effects on their operation.

The reality is that there are many sound financial reasons why companies should hire instead of purchase.

Hiring releases capital for other purposes and improves cash flow.

Depreciating assets are removed from the balance sheet, putting an end to obsolescence.

In addition, monthly hire costs are flexible and fully tax deductible.

Budget costs can be fixed and include service and maintenance costs; this enables better forward planning and a contingency fall-back in case the worst happens.

Contractors can be left with a warehouse full of equipment when a contract ends; often the residual value of such equipment is way below the outstanding finance commitment on the stock.

According to Clean Sweep, there are also various commercial advantages to consider.

When equipment is purchased, a contractor is often faced with a make-do-and-mend scenario.

The contractor owns an ageing piece of equipment – it is not the latest model and not ideal for the task.

Replacing it, however, is out of the question and the client can end up with second best.

Flexible hire contracts enable the customer to select a model with the ideal specification for the task in hand.

Experienced advice is available with full installation and operator training carried out on site.
