Undoubtedly, vehicle costs are one of the largest overheads for business. Therefore, reducing this cost in any way is often one of a fleet operators biggest goals. However, every business is different, and decisions often need to be made around current situations, business needs, and future business goals. It is often vital for a company to weigh up not only the HGV rental costs but also the performance and maintenance required. Understanding the whole Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) often involves negotiation and flexibility.

If you have decided to buy a new truck for your business but are unsure if you can afford to pay for it outright, then truck rental could be for you. Commercial truck and lorry hire is ideal for companies who want to increase, upgrade, or renew their commercial vehicles at the lowest possible cost. This involves spreading the cost over an agreed period of time through set monthly installments.

As with anything, there are pros and cons to both renting a lorry or truck and purchasing for your business finance. When considering hiring a commercial truck, here are the benefits that your business can gain from compared to purchasing a truck outright.

Benefits of hiring a truck

Low initial capital expenditure – Spreading the cost over a monthly basis means you can hire the truck and lorry you need without spending the full amount it’s worth straightaway.

Bespoke to your business – You can arrange personalised bespoke truck rental prices that suit you and your business needs. No hidden costs and terms that work for the companies goals and future plans.

Maintenance and breakdown are covered – At Mac’s Truck Rental we cover any issues you have with your trucks. Although rigorous testing occurs before we hire any of our trucks, issues can arise. We will fix these for you meaning no further costs or long-term downtime.

Access to the latest technology – Renting a used truck will provide you with access to the latest technology and economic standards. As many areas are implementing clean air zones this is particularly important for businesses to further reduce costs.

Tax benefits – Hiring a truck can reduce your tax bill, by offsetting truck rental prices against your taxable profits. If you’re charged VAT on your truck hire, this is also reclaimable.

Options at the end – At the end of your short or long-term truck hire, you will have the option of either buying the truck outright or returning it and hiring a new truck.
