Renting and Rentals of Earth-Moving Equipment

In 2016, the international equipment rental market was worth $159.35 billion. In 2025, that figure is projected to balloon to $230 billion, with earth moving equipment rentals making up the biggest bulk of that at $130 billion.

These numbers tell us that equipment rentals are in high demand, and there’s no sign of them slowing down.

What Does Earth-Moving Equipment Do?

Earth-moving equipment consists of various equipment such as Skid Steer Loaders, Excavators, Power Buggies, and are used by construction companies and landscapers when they need to dig, move, shape large quantities of earth during construction. Most, if not all, construction projects would require earth-moving equipment. Whether you’re laying pipes or building a home, this kind of machinery is absolutely essential in your operations.

Most forms of earth-moving equipment are actually designed to perform different functions, allowing you to use just one or two for a variety of jobs around the construction site. These heavy-duty machines are useful in digging up foundations, grading soil, and moving dirt.

Benefits Of Renting Earth Moving Equipment

A lot of business owners don’t even consider renting—after all, isn’t always better to use equipment that’s actually yours? Even if does cost thousands of dollars, doesn’t it eventually pay for itself?

There are many cases in which owning your own equipment can be the most cost-effective solution for your business. But for many others, renting can actually be cheaper, faster, and better.

Here’s why you should consider renting earth moving equipment for your next project.

Renting Is More Flexible

The more jobs you take on, the more money you can make. But, like any other business, you have limited resources—you can only work as much as your crew and equipment can handle. You can always hire more crew, of course, but equipment is another discussion altogether.

Fortunately,  renting allows you to increase not only the number of projects you can handle but also the kinds of jobs you can accept. You don’t own earth moving equipment? No problem.

Renting Is More Convenient

On top of your actual construction projects, there’s also the matter of storage, maintenance, and transportation to worry about. Renting out your equipment removes the need to stress about these things because the equipment rental company takes care of that for you.

It’s easy to rent equipment. All you have to do is call the equipment rental company with a list of the machines and tools plus the dates you need them. While it’s best to do this in advance to make sure you can rent everything you need, some rental companies can deliver equipment same day and sometimes as quick as a couple of hours.

Renting Is Reliable

You can get the latest, top-of-the-line models from a rental company. Expect well-maintained earth moving equipment that’s ready to go the moment you get them. If there’s a problem—the machine breaks down or it doesn’t perform as well as you want it to—you can always call the rental company to have it serviced, repaired or replaced ASAP.  

Renting Is Cost-Efficient

The #1 reason people choose to rent equipment is cost. The average excavator can cost anywhere from $80,000 to half a million dollars. Compare that to a rental, where you can use the same equipment for as little as a couple hundred dollars a day.

Plus, you don’t have to spend on long-term storage, transporting your equipment to and from the site, or expensive maintenance fees. And instead of having the cost of the machine deducted from your taxes over several years, you can immediately list your equipment rentals down as a business expense.

Many people also choose to rent first before buying. This allows them to try out the machine first before making a costly decision.

How To Rent The Best Earth Moving Equipment For Your Project

Step #1: Make A List Of Your Needed Equipment

Always consider the size and duration of the project when you’re coming up with your list. You may also need to consider the working environment of your project, especially if your construction site is located in harsh terrain or in non-urban areas. You can rent wheeled machines, 4 wheel drives, or track units depending on the environment.

If you already own some tools and equipment, you can cross those off the list. Some equipment, like excavators or skid-steer loaders, can perform multiple functions at once. Renting these out instead of single-purpose machines will save you more money.

Step #2: Contact The Rental Company For A Quote

The next and last step is pretty simple. Do your research on nearby equipment rental companies and see if they have the equipment you need. If they do, contact your equipment rental company of choice and ask them for a quote. They can also be helpful in determining which machine is best suited for your job and help match the equipment that will give you the results you want.

For most business owners, earth moving equipment can be expensive. Save on time and money by renting equipment instead. Contact us today for a free quote!
