Could baler hire be the right decision for your business in 2020?

IWBLOG JAN20

Are you considering baler hire for your business in 2020?

We tend to review our costs and look at ways of attracting more money into our businesses at the start of every year, so we should now be looking at creative ways of getting the best deal for our bulk waste.

Baler hire could help you achieve that.

What are the key benefits of baler hire?

  • Your bulk waste transportation costs are cut – The baler compacts your cardboard or paper waste, meaning more bundles can fit on a lorry to be transported. Baled waste also tends to attract higher bulk waste prices than unbaled waste, as the buyer won’t have to bale it themselves.
  • You can upgrade without the cost of buying new equipment – A baler would cost between £2,500 and £12,000 to buy, depending on the size and whether you choose new or second hand, but the cost of renting can be as little as £80 per month.
  • You preserve the capital in your business – Rather than spending a lump sum on buying a baler, you spread the cost of having it in a monthly rental. This allows you to spend the cash on expanding your workforce, for example.
  • You can get an agreement which includes maintenance – This helps you to avoid costly break-downs and keeps your business running smoothly.

How do you choose the right option?

There are important questions you need to ask in order to get the right fit for your business.

  1. How much bulk waste does your business produce? The larger the amount of waste, the larger the baler you will need to cope with it. A standard 60-inch cardboard baler would produce around two bales of 50 cubic feet per hour.
  2. What space do you have to site a baler? The larger the baler, the larger the space you will need to house it, have safe space around it, and store your bulk waste.
  3. Will your floor take the weight of a baler? This is especially important if you choose a large baler. Businesses with first-floor offices and above should ensure the floor can take the weight of the baler and the stored waste.
  4. Do you need your baler to deal with more than cardboard or paper? Some balers deal with textiles, steel cans, and plastics. You’ll need to decide whether your business produces enough of these items in bulk waste to justify baling them.
  5. Do you need an agreement which includes a maintenance contract? This allows you to know the cost of your new baler every month, avoiding large bills if it breaks down, and keeps your machine in good order, ensuring there won’t be a break in your service.
