Should I Hire or Buy a Dumper?

On any construction site there is a lot of waste to contend with. Choosing how to dispose of this excavation waste goes a long way to informing how effective the site is as a whole in developing and completing tasks and finishing a project within the timeframes and budgetary constraints that are in place. Wheeled dumpers are an effective way to deal with waste of any kind on a construction site, as well as moving heavy materials from one part of a site to another in an expedient way that enhances the level of productivity on offer.

There are certain considerations to make when deciding whether to choose to purchase dumpers or to go through a dumper hire process. The first thing you should do is make a list of your budget and requirements for the next project that is to be worked on. After that, consider whether or not a dumper will be needed on just that one project and site or if your company will need a dumper truck on most or every site you work on for the foreseeable future.

In some cases, it makes sense to purchase a dumper outright, but for others the flexibility of plant hire and dumper truck hire means that this is a much more attractive option. Hiring a dumper means that you will always have access to the latest models and brands of dumper trucks whenever you need them. You’ll have the flexibility to hire a dumper only when you need it. This approach helps many companies to keep a tighter control over cashflow, rather than spending a larger outlay on a dumper that immediately depreciates in value from the first time you use it.

The flexibility extends from the economic benefits to also a practical element. Not every dumper truck is the same, and not every construction site and waste removal requirements will be the same for your company. Hiring dumpers instead of buying them ensures that you have the ultimate flexibility to hire the exact model and size that you need for any given task and project, rather than be stuck using the same dumper for years to come because you’ve spent the initial outlay on one.

Choosing whether to buy or hire a dumper is an important decision for your business. It often comes down to the budgets in place and whether or not there is a need for a dumper for a single project (or just a few projects) or if there will be a need for a dumper to be used on multiple project or even every single project. This could change from company to company and project to project but could shape your decision. Either way, it is important to have access to expert advice about plant hire and plant purchase, and specifically dumper hire. A good plant hire company can provide you with all the information necessary to ensure that you make a fully informed decision that is correct for your business.
