Construction equipment of all kinds for hire in Zambia for short or long periods – excavators, caterpillars and more can be found here. When you only need the use of specialised machinery or plant for a limited period, it may make business sense to hire rather than buy. For more equipment hire suppliers, see our mine plant hire section. Compactors, pumps, generators, block making machinery, any tools and equipment suppliers for the construction trade for hire will be listed here.
In the construction industry when you need equipment only for a short period of time, you should consider renting. When you take the long view and think of future needs-if renting a machine costs as much or more than owning it, then it's time to buy.
In Zambia, the following describes some of the main reasons companies rent:
If your needs are short term, renting an excavator is much more economical than buying one. You can rent an excavator for several months for less money than the cost of most excavator down payments. And if the machine breaks down, you're usually not liable for the repair costs.
Consider the benefits of renting versus buying. If you choose to rent, find what you want here.
