The Best Way to Price Construction Equipment Rentals

Renting construction equipment is popular for construction companies of all sizes for many reasons. Renting equipment is cheaper in the long run compared to buying it.  By renting, companies can get exactly the equipment they need for just as long as they need it. There are no storage costs or idle equipment sitting unused for months out of the year. But how do you price out, estimate and plan a budget for construction equipment rentals?

The Old Way To Price Construction Equipment Rentals

In the past, the way that contractors priced equipment rentals was to call around to their preferred suppliers and rental houses and ask for quotes. 

There are a few challenges with this process. 

  1. Renting from a new supplier means tons of paperwork and relationship building. Keeping payment plants, invoices, contracts and paperwork straight can take a lot of time and effort. 

  2. Prices are often hidden and subject to “special deals” or “price discounts”. This may sound good but contractors can’t really know if they’re getting a good price or not. They’re at the mercy of what sales teams say is a good deal. 
  3. Waiting for emails and phone calls back and forth with sales reps and project managers can put you behind schedule and result in a never-ending game of telephone tag. 

Budgeting projects - especially large projects with multiple rental needs - is even more challenging. Trying to maintain relationships and contractors with a dozen rental houses with different pricing models is not feasible. In the end, many construction companies end up getting all their equipment from the same rental company whether or not it’s best for their budget. 

Pricing Rentals In an Online Marketplace

The best way to price out construction equipment rentals is to utilize the DOZR marketplace. Going to opens up the ability to search for the equipment you need in the location you need it.
