If you're planning to rent construction equipment, and you figure the lease is going to be just like all the others you've signed, you need to take time to really read the lease you're about to get. That fine print is there for a reason, and it's not to simply look official. The lease can make or break your company's budget, especially if something goes wrong, so you and the rental company need to be on the same page (no pun intended) to ensure the rental is satisfactory to everyone.
- If you own a construction company, you can be put in a real bind if your equipment breaks down. If you need to find a replacement quickly, one option might be to go with a heavy equipment rental until the current project is finished. It's understandable though if you don't want to spend a ton of money on the rental as you still might be thinking that you want to get your own equipment repaired.
