Unfortunately they are fairly expensive to be a justifiable purchase for the weekend warrior but there is the cost effective and highly appealing prospect of Bobcat rental.
The cost of a Bobcat rental can be as low as a hundred dollars for a couple of hours but the secret to keeping the transaction affordable is to follow a few simple tips.
When taking something out you are charged for the amount of time you have it not the time you use it.
Because of this it is important to do everything you can before picking up the equipment and only go out to get it once you absolutely need it.
Then take it to the job site do the necessary tasks and return it immediately.
Also when going to the store to pick up your Bobcat rental be sure to inspect the equipment with an associate of the store.
Together you should point out and mark down on the contract all damage to the machinery before you take it out.
This will prevent any miscommunication on damage when the equipment is returned and will help to guarantee the return of your damage waiver.
These machines are built to be workhorses so they can take a fair amount of punishment but be sure to not put the equipment or yourself in situations beyond your ability level.
There are a couple of things that many people do not think of before returning their machinery one of which is that it needs to be clean.
It is as simple as pulling out the hose and spraying down the machinery to make sure it is fairly clean.
Another thing to do to save money is make sure that you refuel after you're done.
The shop will charge a premium on the gas that they must replace themselves and you are better off paying to fill it up yourself.
If you are responsible and put a fair amount of thought into your project a Bobcat rental can save time and money off of hiring a contractor.
