Frequently Asked Questions

Below are a number of common questions our customers have.

Why Rent?

Rentals can provide your company with what it needs to grow, and flourish. Often opportunity knocks at times when you are least able to service that opportunity. Rentals are a good way of allowing your company to be nimble enough to take part in opportunity without putting your company at risk over the longer term by buying assets that may not be utilized 12 months of the year or perhaps until the next such job. The many benefits of renting from Western Heavy Equipment include:

  • Current model equipment in your fleet
  • Adjust your fleet to market needs
  • Machines that you may not want to invest in, available when you need them
  • Get the right size of equipment for the right job
  • No asset to earn against
  • Fixed known costs for the length of the job, meaning easier tender submission
  • Scale your company to the job, rather than the other way around
  • Start the job with more equipment, finish it with less
  • Reasonable cost relative to ownership
  • Tax advantages of renting versus owning

What are your Maintenance requirements?

Western Heavy Equipment Rentals has a commitment to the best running equipment. We have arrangements with our professional equipment suppliers maintenance departments to service the equipment when it properly should be, not when it gets returned.

Therefore, we monitor and track the hours while equipment is on your site - and it will be serviced on site at proper intervals. This ensures the equipment you have is well looked after and maintained for reliability. And gives you the advantage of knowing your equipment is running properly. Preventing mechanical problems before they occur.

While Western provides on site service at regular intervals, daily service such as greasing and inspection is your responsibility.
