Rental Equipment

Frank's Supply maintains a well serviced, construction and industrial rental fleet. We pride ourselves on having the right equipment to aid you in completing your job on time and profitably. We deliver on our own trucks and can assist you in maintaining the equipment while it is on your jobsite.

Our Rental Catalog is designed to provide you the information you need to find the right equipment for your job. Below you will find a downloadable version of our catalog. For your convenience we also have broken it up into sections. By clicking on any of the links below, you will be able to access a section, a specific subsection, or even the complete catalog.

The Benefits of Rental

1. Maintenance - Equipment rented on a day-to-day basis includes full maintenance. The user needs no repair shop, spare parts supply, mechanics, or maintenance records.

2. Breakdown -
Costs related to breakdowns of owned equipment are not applicable to rented equipment. When rented equipment breaks down, it is replaced, thus less down time.

3. Warehousing - Warehousing facilities are seldom needed for rental equipment. Renting makes it possible for contractors to operate with less overhead.

4. Mobility - Equipment rental offers the contractor or customer mobility that does not exist with owned equipment. A contractor can bid on a job several hundred miles away based on renting equipment needed near the jobsite. Availability and convenience have become one of the strongest arguments against ownership.

5. Personal Property Taxes and Licenses - There are no personal property taxes or license costs for rented equipment.

6. Inventory Control -
Another advantage in renting is better inventory control. Contractors have less inventory loss due to theft when equipment is rented. Equipment signed for at an equipment rental business which must ultimately be returned is watched with sharper eyes.

7. Obsolescence -
Day-to-day renting eliminates obsolescence. Ownership risks being handicapped with slow, unwieldy equipment. An equipment rental business provides the latest types and models of equipment.

8. Correct Equipment for the Job - Ownership forces another kind of inefficiency through use of the wrong size of type of equipment for a given job, even though the equipment is not obsolete. This can mean additional, though hidden, costs. Rental insures the correct equipment for the job.

9. Minimum Equipment for the Job - Equipment ownership becomes particularly expensive when the equipment is idle. When ownership of basic equipment is combined with rental; as needed, idle time is minimized.

10. Cost Control -
Better cost control is possible with rented equipment. Knowing the true costs of owned equipment is difficult. Rented equipment offers once accountable cost figure - that shown on the rental invoice.

11. Conservation of Capital -
Renting conserves and frees capital for other, potentially more profitable uses.

12. Increases Borrowing Capacity -
The equipment user who rents rather than buys finds borrowing easier because they have a better ratio of assets to liabilities. Since the equipment does not appear as a liability on his balance sheet, the normal line for bank credit is not disturbed. This can be important in securing construction bonds.
