Rent or Buy?

To Buy, or to Rent? 

An age old dilemma perhaps, but an interesting one and certainly one to consider seriously.

Contractors, engineering firms and welders from all walks of life should weigh up the pros and cons of buying or hiring against their individual welding equipment needs. For example, buying equipment and the convenience of having it ready and waiting are valuable plus points to purchasing, but it also needs to be taken into account how often the equipment is actually used; if the answer is not a lot, then hiring might be the answer.

It's also worth considering the benefits hiring has to accessing new technology in the market place. The latest welding solutions all aim to improve usability, functionality, reliability and flexibility, which in turn optimises speed, use of time, and benefits overall productivity levels in the workplace. It also allows the user to experience all the new welding machinery out there and so make informed decisions before committing to purchase.
