Is Renting Two Way Radios for a Project Right for You?
Many of our customers have projects that may last three months to a year, or even longer, and are faced with the decision of whether to buy, lease, or rent two way radios for their specific project. This can be a tough decision, but there are a number of benefits to renting your two way radios that may be of an advantage to your business to save time, dollars, and improve worker safety.
You get to try out the equipment, before you buy
Once you buy or lease radio equipment, you’re committed. There’s no changing up your equipment just because something isn’t quite working for you. Instead, try renting your two way radios so you can work with the equipment for a while before deciding whether or not it works for you. Also as a benefit, if you rent radios from Nova and then decide to buy radios from Nova, we will apply the last months rental to the purchase of new equipment.
Get the right equipment for the project
Most of our customers don’t have the exact same project every time, and the tools needed will vary depending on job that needs to be completed as well as its environment, workforce needed, and special safety concerns. Renting two way radios helps to make sure your communications tool is right for the specific project. Are you working outside in rain or snow? You may need waterproof radios. Is your project in a large building and needs extra coverage? You may need digital radios. Are you running two shifts? You may need high quality batteries or spares. Rental radios can help to make sure you have the right communications tool for the current project.
When the project is done you can return the equipment
If you’re working at a one-time job, even a long one, you don’t want to buy something that you might never need to use again. Instead, renting the equipment will allow you to work to the unique needs of an individual project without needing to sacrifice practicality. When the job is completed, pack up the radio equipment and send it to us – we’ll take care of the rest! This worry free and easy process is a big benefit to our customers.
Maintenance can be completed through the company that owns the equipment
While you’ll still be responsible for breaks due to negligence or misuse, when the time comes for routine maintenance to be performed on the equipment, you’ll know that the company you’re renting through will handle all of the maintenance your equipment needs.
Ensures you have up-to-date equipment
Technology is changing everyday, and at Nova Communications we want to make sure your radio technology is changing at the same pace for the work you do. One example of technology change happening today is the upgrade to digital radios. Nova Communication will help make sure you have the latest technology that will work for your job. At times, there might be a slight increase in cost to move to the newest rental equipment, but it will definitely be much less expensive than purchase a whole new system.
I like to own my equipment, but I like the monthly rental payments
We hear this from a number of customers, and in some cases this might be the right option for your business. What we recommend to customers that want monthly payments and would like to own the radio equipment at the end of the contract is leasing. Leasing is a great way to reduce your upfront cost, have the option to own the radios at the end of the contract, and be able to write off the expensw each year for tax reasons. If leasing is an option you are interested in, please feel free to contact us or call 1-877-721-7070 and we can discuss leasing options for Motorola two way radios.
In the end, the decision to buy vs. rent is one that needs to be reviewed each time you start a project. If you are interested in purchasing, please contact us.
