Top Reasons to Rent From Altorfer Cat

Renting offers competitive benefits. When you partner with our team at Altorfer Cat for a small, medium or heavy machinery rental, you can:

  • Eliminate expenses. We handle the costs of maintaining and servicing our construction equipment rentals. And when you rent, you also avoid the costs of transporting your machines to long-distance work sites.
  • Minimize costly breakdowns. Our construction equipment rental fleets are loaded with newer, low hour reliable equipment.
  • Complete your job more efficiently. You’ll be using the right equipment with the latest technology to get the job done.
  • Increase your borrowing power. Rentals don’t appear as a liability on your business’ balance sheet.
  • No equipment obsolescence. No more trying to get the job done with old, worn-out equipment.
  • Try it before you buy it. Operate equipment on your job before making a purchase. We offer attractive Rental Purchase Options (RPO) if you choose to buy.
  • Avoid storage. Having enough space to store your fleet is a challenge. Rental equipment provides a workaround, since it’s stored on-site and then picked up by us.
  • Access new machinery. The average age of our fleet is 24 months. Newer equipment features up-to-date technology and hardware, which helps improve fuel efficiency and workplace productivity.
  • Supplement machinery. With construction equipment rentals or leases, you can accept projects that need specialized equipment. That lets you fill your work schedule and become more versatile in the type of work you do.
  • Reduce downtime. Broken machinery can bring work sites to a standstill. Our emergency equipment rentals help you resume work and meet your project deadline without going over budget. And because our rental services are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, you can count on us to be around.
  • Save capital. Purchasing new equipment often requires you to borrow or invest your company’s capital. Rental equipment gives you an alternative option. You can get the machines you need and use your funds where you really need them.

Limiting your downtime and expenses results in gains when it comes to productivity and profit. That’s why companies and contractors choose to rent from Altorfer Cat.
