Hiring vs. Buying Fuel Storage Solutions. What Should You Choose?

26.05.2022 By Fuelfix Tips GO BACK

One of the most frequently asked questions by our customers while choosing the right fuel storage solution for their business is ‘Should I buy or hire the equipment?’

The right answer lies with you – and there are many factors to consider before you make the choice.

Take a look at some of the benefits you can reap if you consider the hire option from Fuelfix & Tanks2Go for your fuel storage needs.

Save on Upfront Capital Outlay

You can hire the equipment you need to get going and invest capital into other areas. With no need to buy capital equipment for a “spike” in your requirements – a hire can help handle the situation as required – the perfect solution for specific projects or short-term deployment of your fleet.

No Commitments

If you are unsure if onsite hydrocarbon storage is suitable for your operations in the long run, hire is the perfect solution.

Greater Operational Flexibility

Your operation is not tied into one option for fuel and lubricants – you can return, upgrade, or downgrade any time to suit the changing needs of your business.

Save On Disuse, Depreciation, and Storage Costs.

Keep it simple; only use it when you need it and get the right gear for the job each time.
