What to Look for When Renting a Bulldozer

There's no denying that the construction and earthworks industries are booming, so you may have been getting more and more jobs lately. Sometimes the lighter tools for the job don't cut it. For instance, you may need to use one or more bulldozers.

Instead of breaking the bank and buying them, renting them is often more economical. Keep reading to learn what you should look for when renting a bulldozer.

Ask Questions

The single best way to get a first impression regarding a heavy equipment rental company is by seeing asking the right questions. Aside from noting their knowledgeability, you should also note their years of experience. At Conquip Inc, most of our staff have over twenty of experience with heavy equipment, rentals, service, and sales so we’re ready to help you select the right dozer for the job. For us to provide the best recommendation regarding efficiency, we’ll need to know:

  • What is your project?

  • Have you operated a dozer before?

  • What kind of work site will you be operating on? What will the terrain be like?

  • Will you be transporting materials with the dozer?

  • How heavy are the materials, and how far will you be transporting them?

Feel free to ask for testimonials from our recent customers as well. This can go a long way toward helping you feel secure in your decision.

Compare and Contrast Bulldozer Prices

Before you sign on the dotted line and rent your bulldozer equipment, it's always a good strategy to get rental quotes from the top companies in your area. This can give you the clearest idea possible of what the going rates are. The last thing you'd want is to get taken advantage of and go over your allotted budget.

You could save money by going with the lowest quote, for instance, but then you may find yourself with shoddy equipment that doesn't work as well as it should. You could even get the wrong equipment altogether, such as a small bulldozer when you put in an order for a large one.

Therefore, it's a good idea to avoid cutting corners when possible. The phrase "you get what you pay for" applies to renting heavy machinery.
