Deciding whether they should rent or purchase scaffolding equipment is something that our clients often struggle with. There’s really no right or wrong answer, but the following points can help make the choice much easier:

Rent if:

  • You expect your project to be completed in 3 months or less
  • The project is at a high level (over 6 meters)
  • The project or structure is curved or has an awkward shape
  • You are unfamiliar or unqualified to build, erect, and dismantle your own scaffolding

Buy if:

  • You expect the project to take longer than 3 months to complete
  • The scaffold you need is 6 meters tall or less
  • The project is simple, and involves only straight line elevations
  • You have a safety program in place, as well as fully trained personnel qualified to safely erect and dismantle scaffolding
