Using your wood chippers was easy, safe, but most importantly, efficient. I used to have an actual forest in my back garden, I don't anymore! Thanks for everything!

Wood Chipper Rental

For a lot of people, out right buying a wood chipper is simply too expensive, and it means the only solution that is left is renting a wood chipper. When it comes to wood chipper rental, there are several advantages and disadvantages to weigh up before making a final decision.

Advantages of Wood Chipper Rental

You only pay for the wood chipper when you are using it, therefore you're getting real value for money. Most people who permanently buy a wood chipper will not use it all the time and are wasting their money, plus when they are not using their wood chipper it is deteriorating in quality, through anything from general wear and tear to rust.

Also, you don't have to provide your own storage for the wood chipper, that is the responsibility of the rental company, so after each day of work you can just take the wood chipper back and not worry about where to keep it.

If you permanently owned a wood chipper, you would have to provide a dry place to store it, in order to prevent it from rusting and you'd also have to make sure the storage facility was completely secure to stop thieves stealing your wood chipper.

Disadvantages of Wood Chipper Rental

The major disadvantage of wood chipper rental is simply not being able to use a wood chipper whenever you like or at short notice. When you out right buy a wood chipper, you'll be able to use it whenever you need it. But when you rent a wood chipper, before you can use it, you'll have to fill in paperwork and sort out payment, that is even if the rental place has a wood chipper available that you can rent, if not then you'll be completely stuck without a wood chipper.

Bureaucracy and red tape is another issue when renting a wood chipper, since they are dangerous pieces of machinery, and due to health and safety legislation it will mean some people aren't allowed to use them and some people are, as some people might have the right qualifications to use them whilst others might not. So if no-one you are working with is allowed to rent out a wood chipper, even if you can all correctly and safely use one without the qualifications, you will not be able to rent one out.

Also, if you are constantly renting out wood chippers, in the long term you'll end up paying a lot more money, than you would if you just out right bought one. Whilst renting a wood chipper may be sensible if you use it once or twice a year, if you are using one week in, week out and you are renting then you will be losing a lot of money.

Most places that you can rent wood chippers from will be used by lots of other firms and organisations, which can then create problems when you need to use a certain model but it isn't available since someone else is renting it out.
