Carpet trolleys are an everyday essential for carpet fitters and carpet retailers. In fact, they come in handy whenever and wherever you need to move carpets and other heavy cylindrical items. But should you buy a trolley outright or hire one? Here is what you need to consider about carpet trolley hire.
Is space in your workplace or van limited? Hiring a carpet trolley might be the way to go. If you don’t have the trolley on a permanent basis, you don’t have to find permanent storage space for it.
Only need a carpet trolley now and again? Carpet trolley hire could be a smart choice. Do it this way and you’ll only pay for the trolley for as long as you need it.
If you hire a carpet trolley and you notice that it’s not working as it should, you can easily return it and hire another model. However, if you own the trolley and its out of warranty, you either have to pay for a repair or buy a new one.
While there are benefits to hiring a carpet trolley, there’s also a lot to be said for investing in your own.
Need to do a job quickly? If you have your own carpet trolley, you can go ahead, no fuss. On the other hand, if you want to hire one and you can’t get exactly what you want, you’re going to run in to problems.
Say a carpet trolley costs £45 per week to hire. To buy one, you’d spend around £220. If you hire the trolley for 5 weeks over the year, you’ll have spent more than the purchase price with nothing to show for it. If you buy it, you’ll have an asset.
If you buy your own carpet trolley, you won’t have to waste time, money, and effort picking it up and returning it.
Whether hiring a carpet trolley or buying your own piece of kit is better for you depending on your needs and circumstances.
These are just some of the things you need to consider before making the decision to buy or hire.
