Renting a boiler for your job site is an effective way to get your project done without having to spend thousands of dollars on equipment purchases that you may not need very often in the future. Following are three important things to consider when renting your boiler to ensure a positive experience:
An important aspect to think about before renting a boiler to use on your job site is storage space and ongoing maintenance. You need to know the type of boiler will be delivered to the site ahead of time to ensure that you can properly store it while it's in your possession. There are a few types of rentals to consider:
Mobile Boiler Rooms – Usually housed in a shipping container, which means you'll need to locate it in an open area where work isn't being done by your crew.
Trailer Mountable Boilers – Can be hooked to the back of a large truck and relocated throughout the job site as necessary.
Electrical Boilers – Should be installed indoors, so you'll need a sizable room or shed to store it in.
The company you rent from should be able to provide you with the specific dimensions, features, and functions of the boiler that will be delivered to your job site so you can plan and prepare accordingly.
Purchasing and Managing the Fuel
Most boiler rental companies don't provide the fuel you might need for use with the boiler your rent, so it's important to plan ahead and make sure you have access to enough fuel when it's needed. Find out the specs of the boiler you're renting to determine the specific type of fuel that's needed to run it, and the amount of fuel it burns every hour that it is in use. With this information, you'll know how much fuel to keep on hand at any given time, so you don't face downtime in the middle of your project due to running out.
It's a good idea to inquire about any accessories that may be offered by the company you're renting your boiler from. Why buy the accessories that you need when you can rent them along with the boiler? You may be able to rent the following accessories and save some money over buying them:
Hoses and Pipes
If the company you're renting from doesn't offer the accessories you need, you may be able to rent them from a parts or repair shop in your area. Contact a company that has rental boilers for more information and assistance.Share
