Say you need to do some home renovations, perhaps install a new fence or build a retaining wall. Usually you would contract a construction or landscaping company to come in and do the work for you, right? But you feel that you could do the work if only you had the correct equipment.
Dry hire allows individuals like yourself and companies to hire plant equipment such as excavators, bobcat loaders and tipper trucks on their own without an operator, allowingyou to operate them yourself and save labour costs. The term Wet hire includes the hired equipment, an operator, and additional consumables to complete the job.
What is not included in your dry hire?
• An operator–Ryno Hire provides instructions, safe operation tips and operator manualsat the start of the hire.
• Additional fuel and lubricants – your hired equipment from Ryno Hire comes fully fuelled and lubricated prior to hire,during the hire it is the hires responsibility to fuel and grease when on hires longer than 1 day.
• Attachments – unless hired in addition to the machine hire.
Why dry hire equipment over wet hire?
There are several factors to consider when deciding to either wet hire or dry hire plant equipment, including:
– Cost: Wet hire rates can be extensive as they usually have a minimum cost that is typically more than the total hire of a dry hire for a whole day.
– Access restrictions: Limited access can reduce the amount of Wet Hire companies due to the equipment they have at their disposal.
– Job lay out: Some jobs only require some machinery at the beginning to access pipes and then at the end of the day to fill back in. With wet hire you have to pay the operator for every hour they are there regardless of if they are working or not.
– Reliability: is the machine operation only required at the beginning and end of the job. If you are a company with experienced operators, dry hire will allow you to get the job done with the specific require.
So,with all this in mind, your next big DIY project is easier than you think!
