The number one advantage with short term hire is flexibility. If you quickly need to meet a temporary peak in demand, or if your demand levels change depending on the time of year, then renting is probably your best option.

Expanding your fleet by renting can be easier on your bottom line, but it can also have effects elsewhere. Having more trucks to move more pallets could lower costs, improve productivity, and reduce the strain on your drivers.

Positives:
  • Flexibility
  • Low upfront costs
  • Fast turnaround
Negatives:
  • No special orders
  • Costly in the long term
  • Required specifications not always available
