Is Renting a Steam Boiler a Waste of Money?
Renting a steam boiler can seem like the only option you have when your current boiler breaks down and you need to get operations started again as soon as possible. Unfortunately, renting a boiler is a deeply flawed process that’s filled with hidden costs. All things considered, renting a boiler can turn out to be a big waste of money, especially when you consider the alternative options.
The best alternative to renting a boiler is Miura’s Quick Ship Xpress program. Instead of renting a boiler as a temporary solution, with Quick Ship Xpress, Miura will send you a brand new boiler to serve as a permanent replacement for your old boiler. Quick Ship Xpress can ship a new boiler within 48 hours, helping to get operations back on track as soon as possible.
If you settle for renting a boiler, you’ll have to go through the process of installing it, only to uninstall it later when you get around to buying a new boiler. All the time spent waiting for, installing, and uninstalling the rented boiler causes you to lose money because of the productivity you lose during that time, which is one of the hidden costs you don’t always realize are part of renting a boiler.
You also have to keep in mind that not all rented boilers will be in great shape. Most are used and have undergone great wear and tear while being installed and uninstalled many times. As a result, they’re not going to be anywhere near as efficient as a brand new boiler from Miura. Using a rented boiler will slow down your productivity and force you to pay more in operation costs, adding to the total amount you pay when you rent a boiler.
Finally, you have to keep in mind that when you rent a boiler, you’re essentially paying for two boilers. First, you have to pay for the rental boiler, which usually isn’t cheap. Later, you eventually have to pay for a new boiler to be the permanent replacement for your old one. With Quick Ship Xpress, you’re only paying for one boiler, and because it’s a brand new boiler, you know it’ll be operating at peak efficiency as soon as you get it. When you consider all the hidden costs associated with renting a boiler, it ends up being a huge waste of money in the long run when you compare it to buying a new boiler with Miura’s convenient Quick Ship Xpress program.
