Top 5 Benefits Of Renting A ForkliftRenting a forklift or other material handling equipment is a cost-effective way to expand your fleet without a massive capital expense. Instead of tying up money in a depreciating asset, renting equipment allows you to invest in income-producing opportunities such as new inventory or a warehouse expansion.

Doing more with your hard-earned money is just one of the many benefits of renting a forklift. Read on to learn how forklift rentals can also help your operation maintain CARB compliance and avoid unexpected expenses.


Top 5 Reasons to Rent a Forklift

  1. Only pay for what you use – your rental cost is based on how many hours you expect to use it. When you buy a forklift you pay for 100 percent of the equipment whether you use it all day every day, or fewer than ten hours a week.
  2. Maximize your available credit  – when you finance equipment, it can reduce your ability to borrow. Renting keeps your credit line clear.
  3. Rental payments are tax deductible – rental payments are considered an operating expense and can reduce your tax liability.
  4. Generate cash by selling stand-by equipment – many operations keep equipment on hand in case of breakdowns or to meet seasonal needs. Renting allows you to convert infrequently used equipment into cash
  5. Avoid fines and stay CARB compliant – when you rent from TMH, CARB compliance is one less thing you need to worry about. We always maintain our equipment to current standards, PLUS equipment rented for 30 aggregated calendar days or less per year is exempt from CARB reporting.
