What types of projects benefit from scaffold rental?
When it comes to construction, maintenance, or renovation projects, having safe and efficient access to heights is critical. In such cases, scaffolding plays an important role in providing workers with a safe platform to perform their work. While some projects are best done with your own scaffolding materials, many others can benefit from the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of Scaffold Services. In this article, we will explore the benefits of scaffold rental and highlight several scenarios where scaffolding rental is the ideal choice.
Is your future protection better served with a scaffold rental? Whether a new construction, renovation or industrial project – in theory, any type of project is suitable for Scaffold Services. But when is renting scaffolding a particularly good alternative to buying? To answer this question, you need to consider the individual needs of your project. Here are some examples of when your project could benefit from scaffolding hire:
Projects involving large quantities of scaffolding materials
When work areas need to be accessed at higher heights, the list of scaffolding materials required is correspondingly longer. Not a problem if you have enough scaffolding material in your warehouse to erect such scaffolding and still have capacity for other projects. Utopian idea, you think? Then we are with you. Often, projects with large amounts of material are ideal for scaffold rentals. This allows you to temporarily increase your stock so that your yard still has capacity for other projects. And that means you have to be flexible!
Projects that require special scaffold components
Best of all, you can use every single scaffolding part in your stock for a wide range of projects. But the truth is that there will always be special parts that you only need for a specific project. This is where it can be beneficial to rent these scaffolding components instead of buying them. That way, you can easily return them to the rental company when your project is complete, saving you storage costs.
Short or well-defined stand-time projects of scaffolding
Especially if you are planning a project where the scaffolding will only be used for a short period of time, it is worth considering renting scaffolding materials. As a rule of thumb, 12 weeks or less can help you decide whether to buy or rent scaffolding material. Renting scaffolding is a popular alternative to buying, especially in industries where there are fixed deadlines that cannot be postponed. For example, in the event industry, which is tied to certain days of the event, or in the oil and gas industry, where strict schedules must also be kept for shutdowns and turnarounds.
