This tool has been created by the ERA European Rental Association to allow any stakeholder involved with construction equipment to check whether for his specific situation it would make more sense to rent or purchase a specific piece of construction equipment. Variables taken into account include acquisition cost, financing, utilisation rate, maintenance and other costs as well as resale rate. Please contact us, with any comments, questions or feedback on this calculator. This tool will allow a contractor and/or a rental company to calculate the cost implications of renting equipment rather than buying it.
The ERA European Rental Association has created a downloadable version of its Rent Versus Buy Decision Maker in .exe format. This downloadable version is available in the following languages: Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish
