Why Buy a Tool and Only use it once? Let A-1 Equipment Rental Center Help

If you own a home, then there is no doubt faced with at least a few do it yourself (DIY) projects per year.  Buying the power tools can be expensive, and if you are only planning on using them once or twice, then that tool will feel like a waste of cash.  Don’t give up your DIY dreams just yet! If there’s a rental center nearby, then you finally have a serious money-saving option.  Check out the benefits of equipment rental below!

 

  • Per Use Cost – Tool rental is a great way to fix the “per-use” cost problem of buying tools.  You figure the per-use cost by taking the total cost of the tool, and dividing it by the number of times you will be using it.  With equipment rental, you share the total cost of the tool with other customers, which is especially nice if you are only planning on using it once. 
  • Rent Anything – Did you know that you can rent almost any tool or piece of construction equipment?  Rental centers often offer tool rental along with truck rental and even tractor rental.  You can dig up your yard, haul away the dirt, and use a power tool to cut and lay new granite slabs all without breaking the bank. 
  • No Storage Problems – Power tools take up space, a lot of space.  The expensive tools need to be stored properly and can often be a hazard to your children or pets if stored near the home.  Tool rental can help prevent a storage problem and keep your home safe from power tool accidents.

Five Safety Tips for Avoiding Construction Site Accidents

Construction sites are filled with dangerous accidents just waiting to happen.  After all, heavy equipment and sharp blades aren’t exactly the safest things in the world.  It doesn’t matter if the construction site is full of trained professionals or is just a DIY project in your backyard, the same techniques and advice should be followed to avoid serious problems.  So the next time you’re a in a construction site, use these tips to keep everyone safe.

  1. Make sure you know how to properly use all tools and equipment – Rental companies can often give you a bit of training on a tool if you are unfamiliar with how to use it.  If you still don’t feel totally confident operating it, read the manual.
  2. Wear proper safety gear – Power tools can be a safety hazard if used improperly and without the necessary safety gear.  If you are going to rent some tools, then make sure to pick up some safety goggles at the same time. 
  3. Mark dangerous areas – If you are tearing up the roof or digging holes in the yard make sure to clearly mark the hazardous areas where people might fall or get hit by debris. 
  4. Lift heavy objects properly – Many people don’t know how to safely lift heavy items and are likely to suffer back problems.  Use the proper equipment rentals to help with the heavy lifting and hauling of material.
  5. Make sure all equipment is in good working order – A damaged power tool can cause serious injuries if you continue to use it.  With tool rentals, you can be sure that all equipment is in working order and safe to use.

Renting Moving Equiptment: Equipment You May Not Own

Moving to a new home can be stressful, especially if you don't have the right equipment. Many truck rental companies provide the works when it comes to moving.

Equipment rentals are a great way to save money when moving, rather than buying all the stuff on your own and only using it once.  Here is some equipment you rent instead of buying when preparing to move.

  • Moving trucks are the most important thing to have when starting to move.  You're not in college anymore, so you don't have to stuff your entire life in your car.  Moving trucks come in many different sizes depending on the size of your house. If you have 6 rooms full of your family’s possessions to move, then you are going to want a bigger truck than you would if you lived alone.
  • Dollies are extremely helpful when moving and come in many different sizes. You can load multiple boxes on a dolly, along with the heavier items like refrigerators, so you don't strain your back. Plus the wheels help you maneuver through doors, hallways, and up the ramp to the truck.
  • Auto trailers are very useful when moving your car to your new home. They attach to the rear of the moving truck that you're driving, so you don't have to leave your car behind or find somebody else to drive it.
  • Packing peanuts help keep everything in place when packing boxes.  Moving can be rough and you don't want your fragile china or that beautiful crystal vase you got for your anniversary to break. Also, if you're going green, consider packing peanuts that are made from recycled materials.
