Instead of buying a diesel tank, hiring one may prove to be a better option for you.
Here are four good reasons to consider hiring a diesel tank, instead of purchasing one outright.
Perfect short term diesel storage solution
Buying a diesel tank is very expensive, making it an impractical option for short term construction projects.
A perfect solution would be to hire a diesel tank. You will only need to pay for the tank while you require it, and when it's no longer needed, the hire company will come and remove it for you.
If a tank is required in an emergency, hiring one is the best option too.
Towable tanks can be moved around your site and positioned as required, whereas a permanently sited tank has to stay where it is.
Maintenance is not your responsibility
If you purchase a diesel tank, you will be responsible for its ongoing maintenance costs. When you hire a tank, any maintenance work required during the hire period will be undertaken by the hire company as part of your contract, saving you money as well as hassle.
You won't have to install the diesel tank yourself
If a fuel tank is incorrectly installed, danger can be presented to the environment and to your workforce. If you hire a diesel tank, it will be installed on-site for you wherever you need it.
The hire company will deliver the tank and install it with a view to causing minimal disruption to your construction site operations. When you've finished with the tank, they will come and take it away for you.
You won't need to buy a new diesel tank if yours is damaged
Construction sites are busy places, and with heavy plant in operation, damage can occur to items such as fuel tanks. Tanks also suffer from daily wear and tear. A damaged tank or one that is in poor condition will require replacement.
A hire tank will be replaced or repaired at no extra cost, potentially saving you a lot of money on replacement.
If you are undertaking a short term construction project and you need a diesel tank on-site, your best option would probably be to hire one, rather than making an outright purchase.
