Advantages of a Loading Dock Rental Over a Purchase

To Rent or to Buy . . .

Our loading docks provide an excellent way for your operations to have loading and off-loading for "on-demand” situations. They're designed to be workhorses for industries, ready and waiting for the next big shipment.

So, rent or buy? In some scenarios, buying a new loading dock may not be in the budget or what you need. And so a loading dock rental may be in your company’s best interests.

Here are two advantages to a yard ramp rental:

1. A Cost-Effective Alternative.

The price for basic models of new yard ramps for purchase is most often between 9 and 15 thousand dollars.

If that range is not currently within budget, utilizing a yard ramp rental provides the same service at about one-third the price of a purchased unit, affording you a quicker return on investment.

Factors here include the length of the rental agreement: typically, the longer you rent, the cheaper your monthly payment will be.

Renting also avoids the interest charges of financing a new yard ramp.

2. The Test Run.

If you're uncertain about a yard ramp suiting your company’s needs, testing one for a time is an excellent way to determine its effectiveness. And if you do find your yard ramp to be useful to your operations, we also provide a scenario for converting that rental into a purchase. Explore our Rental FAQ for more information.
