Feature Dec 01, 2009 Equipment Rental Trends - Rental Realities Author is expressing her views on how easy or difficult it to hire construction equipment and what is the deal of the services. As it was the unorganised sector, earlier immature construction and allied rental markets meant that the quality of construction equipment offered was inadequate and insufficient to attract a few big players. The entry of national players into the construction industry in recent years has come as a beacon of opportunity to investors, consumers and allied sectors i.e construction equipment rental providers. Timely and easy access to appropriate, well-maintained equipment can kick-start the implementation of projects. A sign of maturity in the rental market is its ability to offer a wide range of equipment incorporating the latest technology, as well as trained operators and service personnel to maintain and troubleshoot its usage. If youâ€™re planning to rent, be prepared to shell out approximately one to two months of the monthly rental of the equipment as security deposit.
