The benefits of renting equipment
Even though renting drywall tools is a cheaper alternative in the short term, you have to assess how often you will use an item, a tool, or a piece of equipment before you invest in renting over buying. If you only plan to use the equipment once or twice, then renting is the obvious choice for both convenience and value. Rental is also a handy option if you have storage limitations.
Another advantage to renting is the quality of the products that you'll be using. Construction equipment and drywall taping tools that are available for rent are generally of higher quality than the products that most consumers would purchase. Many rental firms buy contractor and professional vendor models, so renters are able to use equipment that is better constructed and more powerful. Party equipment is similar in the fact that you can rent elaborate or expensive items that normally wouldn't fit into your budget.
There are also various maintenance expenses that you can avoid by renting. The rental company is responsible for the cost of storage and service repairs, and many firms deliver and pick up the larger pieces of equipment for you. Representatives from the companies also make themselves available to customers for instruction on how to use their products. While buying a new piece of equipment can sometimes leave you feeling hesitant and confused, a rental company is a secondary resource that you can turn to for answers and advice. Drywall Zone offers instructional videos as well for some of equipment to be rented.
