Acrow props have become indispensable
to the construction industry. Every building site in the world uses this
versatile and adjustable temporary support. Whether it’s being used as formwork
to reinforce floors and beams or as raking shores to support walls, columns,
and staircases, you’re going to need Acrow props.
 Some companies, especially smaller
contracting outfits may be tempted by the cheaper option of an Acrow prop hire.
In some instances, renting equipment may be a good way to save money; you
increase cash flow. However, there is a downside to choosing to hire your steel
props.
For one thing, you may have to take
more time to scrutinise the prop since it is likely to have been used numerous
times over. It would not be uncommon to spot dents and damages on the prop, if
you were conscientious enough about checking. Whereas with an outright
purchase, you are certain you’re getting a new prop.
For another thing, the daily cost of
renting your steel adjustable props may turn out to be a lot more costly than
you anticipate. This may happen when the Acrow prop provider isn’t a suitable
choice, which is why it’s crucial to always vet your vendor.
You’ll want to make sure that the
company has the required licences to operate and that it is known for
delivering high-quality props. And that it comes highly recommended by previous
and existing clients. An online search for customer reviews would be a good
start.
Another key thing about choosing to buy
than to hire is that you could have more choices where Acrow prop sizes are
concerned. Now every construction project has its own unique requirements for prop
size. You’ll need your props provider to stock what your projects require so
that you don’t have to go to more than one source. And providers that sell
rather than hire tend to offer wider variety of sizes.
Delivery and collection may also
provide less than favourable results when you choose to hire Acrow props. Know
that some providers may charge you for delivery and collection. And this
expense could put a considerable dent in your expense.
Finally, buying your steel props may be
a better investment especially when your contracting business or building
company is growing. You would not want to have to keep calling companies to rent your equipment every time a project comes up,
now would you? This would not only be a vast waste of your time but also a huge
waste of your energy.
