The surge in the construction and mining activities, mostly in the developing countries is the key factor driving the market for construction equipment rental.

Technological advancements in automotive and heavy machinery sectors has brought many new features to the market for construction equipment rental. Construction equipment manufacturers are not only focusing on incorporating advanced safety features such as lift assist, 360-degree camera visual, and additional work lights, but are also focused towards providing systems that improve the operational efficiency and require lesser maintenance. However, these features come at a high price, which is not affordable to many small builders and contractors. Thus, these professionals prefer rental construction machinery.

Renting construction equipment not only saves the cost of buying new equipment but reduces the incurrence of expenses such as labor cost, maintenance cost, and operational costs. The cost of timely maintenance, repair, and checking is also avoided. Construction equipment rental companies perform all these tasks regularly, to gain long-term profit from the machinery. These companies are now also focusing on providing onsite services and support for equipment, which further enhances customer experience. Companies such as Caterpillar Inc. offer quick response teams to help customers at remote locations through mobile servicing vans.

Interest on loans, insurance cost, licensing cost, storage cost, and taxes are the overhead costs involved post purchase of the construction equipment.
