Have you ever seen someone operating heavy machinery and thought to yourself: “There’s no way I could do that!” Well, we’re here to prove you wrong. Lack of skill, experience, training or even your own doubts can prevent you from taking that next step. But we’re here to share some guidance and wisdom. Absolutely anyone can operate these machines – given they meet a few minor requirements. Fancy yourself an excavator for the weekend? It’s completely doable – and not only that but if you’re serious about DIY, dry hire is your best friend. Here’s why.
What is Dry Hire?
One of the reasons why construction projects can get expensive very quickly is because of traditional methods of borrowing equipment and employing skilled workers. While this works well for large construction companies and projects, this is too much for the humble DIY enthusiast. For those looking to undertake a little side-project such as re-landscaping their backyard, installing a driveway, irrigated garden, gazebo, or retaining wall, hiring a whole team with equipment can be excessive and expensive. Also less rewarding, let’s be honest. This is where dry hire comes in.
With dry hire, you can hire all of the machines you need to bring your DIY project to life – and you can ditch the contractor. You operate the machinery yourself. This eliminates the need to pay for an operator (also known as wet hire), and can save you a massive amount of money – money that you can re-invest into your upgrade!
While you hesitate at the prospect of operating heavy machinery, we’re here to tell you that can be much easier than you think. And working with a trusted company like Ryno Hire, you get support along the way to ensure you feel confident operating our machines and are satisfied with your hiring decisions.
