In everything you do, you’re probably looking for efficiency, cost-effectiveness and reliability. With Enterprise and National, you get all three. Comprehensive rental solutions can benefit your construction business in various ways. Here are six benefits to using Enterprise and National with CBUSA’s discount for builder members.

1. Cost savings and financial flexibility

  • Reduced capital expenditure: Purchasing vehicles and equipment requires a significant upfront investment, which can strain your financial resources. Renting, on the other hand, allows you to allocate funds more effectively, focusing on other critical areas like labor, materials and marketing.
  • Predictable costs: Rental services provide fixed rates for specific periods, making it easier to budget and manage your finances. This predictability helps in avoiding unexpected expenses related to vehicle maintenance or equipment repairs.
  • Tax benefits: Rental payments can often be deducted as business expenses, providing potential tax advantages compared to the depreciation and maintenance costs associated with ownership.

2. Access to a wide range of high-quality vehicles

  • Latest technology: Rental companies regularly update their fleets and equipment, ensuring that you have access to the latest technology and most efficient models. This can lead to increased productivity and improved project outcomes.
  • Diverse inventory: Whether you need pickup trucks, moving truck, vans or a car when you’re out of office, Enterprise and National offer a diverse inventory to meet your specific needs.

3. Enhanced operational efficiency

  • Reduced downtime: With rental services, you can easily replace or upgrade equipment if it breaks down or becomes outdated, minimizing downtime and keeping your projects on schedule.
  • Scalability: As your business grows or as project demands fluctuate, rental services allow you to scale your fleet and equipment inventory up or down accordingly. This adaptability ensures that you always have the right resources for the job without overcommitting financially.
  • Maintenance: With rental vehicles, you’ll get comprehensive maintenance and support services, reducing the burden on your team to manage repairs and upkeep. This ensures that your vehicles and equipment are always in top working condition.

4. Updated safety and compliance

  • Regular inspections and upgrades: Rental companies perform regular inspections and maintenance on their fleets, ensuring that all vehicles and equipment meet the latest safety and compliance standards. This reduces the risk of accidents and legal issues, protecting your workers and your business.
  • Training and support: Get training and support to ensure that your team can operate rented equipment safely and efficiently. This added layer of support is invaluable.

5. Environmental and sustainability benefits

  • Access to eco-friendly options: Rental companies often include eco-friendly vehicles and equipment in their inventories, allowing you to reduce your environmental footprint. Opting for hybrid or electric vehicles, for instance, can help your business align with sustainability goals and regulations.
  • Efficient resource use: Renting enables more efficient use of resources by sharing equipment among multiple users, reducing the overall demand for new manufacturing.
