It is one of those age-old questions, the type that causes much deliberation and indecisiveness amongst site managers and business owners alike; is it better to buy or hire a new piece of equipment? This question is often raised by industrial floor sweepers and scrubber driers. Essential to the cleanliness, appearance and safety of a business facility, it cannot be denied, they are a highly worthwhile investment. However, before deciding whether to buy or hire, a business owner should do their research first – the best choice for them will depend entirely on their unique needs and requirements. Here we take a look at the benefits of floor sweeper purchase and industrial floor sweeper hire in turn and explore the range of options currently available at Factory Cat UK.
The Main Advantages of Buying an Industrial Floor Sweeper or Scrubber
If you’re a well-established business, having traded for a number of years, the chances are you will be fully settled into your premises and you will fully understand its maintenance needs – including the type of surfaces to be cleaned and how often they need to be done. In such circumstances, purchasing a new industrial floor sweeper or scrubber is probably the best option for you. Your knowledge of the business will make choosing a new machine relatively easy; you have a strong grasp of your exact needs and requirements and you can select a model that is perfect for you. Cash flow is likely good and, in the long run, purchasing your own industrial floor sweeper would make much more financial sense than hiring. Simply save up the required amount, choose the perfect cleaning solution for you, and you won’t need to worry about any long-term monthly payments.
Purchasing a new industrial floor sweeper or scrubber drier also has the advantage of ownership. After all, you will own the equipment; it will be yours and, when you no longer need it (or if it’s time for an upgrade), you can simply sell it to somebody else and make back some of the money you spent on the initial investment. The technology involved in floor sweepers and scrubber driers has remained relatively unchanged for many years now, therefore, it is unlikely that your model will become outdated. You can use it for however long you want, you won’t have to adhere to a lease agreement and you won’t need to rely on the leasing company if something was to go wrong. It is entirely yours and you have the freedom to use it, maintain it, and repair it whenever you like.
The Main Advantages of Industrial Floor Scrubber Hire and Floor Sweeper Hire
One of the main benefits of industrial floor sweeper hire is cash flow, which is especially important for new businesses. If you’re just starting out in the world of business, you will likely be faced with a myriad of different expenses. It is a financially difficult time for most, every penny counts, and buying a floor sweeper will unlikely be at the top of your priority list. In such circumstances, industrial floor sweeper hire is the most viable option. There wouldn’t be an expensive initial outlay, any unexpected repair bills can be avoided, the hire company will take care of any routine maintenance costs, and consumables can be incorporated into the package. Quite simply, you will receive the equipment you need and at a very fair and manageable fixed monthly cost.
It’s also important to note that, not all businesses need regular access to a floor scrubber. You may be planning a one-off deep clean of your premises, or perhaps your facility only needs to be cleaned once or twice a year. In these situations, purchasing your own industrial floor sweeper or scrubber drier would be completely unnecessary – wasteful, in fact – and industrial floor sweeper hire would be much better suited to your needs. You can choose the equipment you need at the time and simply give it back at the end of the contract. Many companies, including Factory Cat UK, even offer a short-term scrubber drier and sweeper hire service – with various types of walk-behind and ride-on sweepers and scrubber driers available for one-off use, at a very reasonable cost.
