Improvement and construction projects in your yard are a great way to give your yard a makeover and improve its use and value. However, having the right equipment for the job can make your work much easier on your body and your time frame to complete the work. A construction equipment rental company is an option for you to look into, which can help you with managing the work. Here are some tips and recommendations to help you when you need to rent and use mini excavation and construction equipment for your next project.
Consider Your Needs
One of the first considerations for you to think about is what type of equipment you will need to rent. Are you going to be clearing some land in your yard and need to remove rocks, vegetation, or topsoil, or do you need to transport landscaping materials and soil from one area into another around your yard? A mini excavator with a bucket loader is a good option for leveling the soil and applying mulch or gravel from a delivery load at the other end of your property.
You can also rent a mini excavator to excavate a trench for installing a new sewer line, sprinkler lines in a system, or a new septic tank and drainfield lines. Or you may need a mini excavator with a mulching attachment to remove and shred tree limbs, small tree stumps, and heavy shrubbery in your yard. Talk to a rental specialist at a local rental retailer about your project and the types of equipment that can fit your needs.
Look at Rental Rates
Once you have selected the type of equipment you will need, you should look at how long you need to rent it for. You can rent construction equipment for anywhere from a few hours, one day, a week, or even a month.
You may look at renting your equipment on a Friday, for example, where you won't have to return it until the following Monday, which will allow you some extra time for its rental. The rental company may only charge you for the hours you used the equipment, which are logged on the machine, instead of charging you for each day over the weekend. Look into the different rental rates to find one that fits your budget and the time frame for your project and make arrangements for you to pick up the equipment with your truck or ask about delivery to your property.
