What to Know Before Renting an Industrial Steam Boiler

If one of your industrial boilers breaks down at an inopportune time, which is almost always the case, you may think that the only option you have in the short-term is to rent a boiler so you can get things up and running as soon as possible. But renting an industrial boiler is not always as simple and easy as it sounds. There are a few important things you should know about renting an industrial steam boiler before you sign any contract.

For starters, the process rarely happens as quickly as you think it might. Large industrial boilers are not easy to ship, so you could be waiting several days for your rental boiler to arrive. Then comes the installation process, which is not always quick either. By the time your rental boiler arrives and is installed, you’ve likely lost a significant amount of productivity and money that you will never be able to get back. Eventually, a new boiler will need to be purchased to replace the one that broke down as well as the one you rented. Of course, then you’ll waste even more time and money uninstalling the rented boiler and getting your new one online.

You’ll also want to keep in mind that the boiler you’re renting is likely to be a used boiler. It’ll be a boiler that’s been installed and uninstalled several times before and has probably been shipped all over the country. It’ll have plenty of wear and tear on it, which means there is no guarantee that it will still be functioning at the highest level. Obviously, you won’t be expecting a rental boiler to be a top-of-the-line machine, but do you really want to swap your broken boiler for one that is past its prime?

On top of all the hidden costs that come with renting a boiler (such as the time and productivity you’ll lose), you also have to deal with the actual cost of renting a boiler. When all is said and done, renting a boiler can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. That’s a lot of extra money that you’ll have to find somewhere in your budget. Ultimately, the money you spend renting a boiler may come out of the fund devoted to buying a new permanent boiler. This means you might have to settle for a lesser boiler when you’re in the market for purchasing a permanent one.

Of course, the most important thing to know about renting a industrial boiler is that you don’t actually have to rent one.
