Why working time is only 8 hours

Published : January 29, 2021

We have had a lot of questions lately about our rental time frame and how that works. All of our rentals are rented not only by the day, as well as by the amount of hours put on the machine.

The shortest amount of time we will rent for is for a day rental.
A one day rental means you will have the lift for a full 24 hours. However, you will have 8 hours of working time, like a regular work day, on the meter that records the time the lift is operating. A two day will give you sixteen hours and a week will give you forty hours of engine run time. In this situation with the amount of hours you put on the machine exceeds the allocated hours for the time frame you have selected to rent the lift, you will be charged accordingly.

For example, if you have a one week rental and put any more than forty hours of work on the machine. We will have to charge for a week and a day. When you rent the lift for a one week rental, you will have the lift for a full seven days. In conclusion these ‘rules’ we follow are standard in the industry and any other rental place will have similar renting requirements.
