How to Prepare for Heavy Equipment Rental

You want heavy equipment rental to be as straightforward and hassle free as possible. By being ready and understanding the equipment dealer's requirements, you can speed up the rental process and get back to work in no time.

Credit approval and payment

We require credit approval before renting heavy equipment. Before choosing which equipment to rent, be sure to have an acceptable payment method ready. If you're not sure whether you have the credit necessary to receive approval, talk to our rental department to see what other options are available.

Heavy equipment rental delivery

In the majority of cases, you will have to pay for delivery of your machines, so ensure you make the proper arrangements to pick up the heavy equipment that you are renting, if you can. Otherwise, provide us with your location and agree on a time for the equipment to arrive. Remember to take the delivery schedule into account when planning your project schedule.

Insurance for renting heavy equipment

We also require insurance for heavy equipment rental, so contact your insurance provider before coming in to see what steps you have to take. If you don't have an insurance provider, contact our rental department, and we will recommend one.

Heavy equipment rental contracts

Review your rental contract carefully before you sign it. This document will contain important information on your responsibilities while the equipment is under your control. If you have questions about any of the information in the rental agreement, be sure to ask our team before you sign it.

Damage responsibility when renting heavy equipment

When renting heavy equipment, treat it as if it were your own. You won't be charged for damage due to problems with the machine or normal wear and tear, but abuse or negligence of the equipment can lead to additional fees. Excessive staining or cosmetic damage necessitating additional cleanup can also lead to an additional charge. If the construction equipment is damaged while you are using it, be sure to document the damage and immediately notify your insurance carrier and the dealer.
