Birketts Bog Mats


If you’re on the lookout for bog mats for a new project, you might be thinking about buying, but is that the best option for you? What if you were to explore the possibility of hiring? Whether you’re on the hunt for crane mats to support heavy machinery, or you need to create an even surface, it’s beneficial to weigh up the pros and cons of hire versus purchase.

The benefits of hiring a bog mat

It is possible to buy bog mats, but before you make a purchase, it’s wise to explore the potential benefits of hiring a bog mat instead. For those who use bog mats day in, day out, buying is an excellent option that will save money in the long-term, but if you’re taking on a single project, hiring may make better financial sense. If you don’t plan to use a bog mat regularly, or you need a bog mat on a one-off basis, hiring could save you a substantial amount of money. As Birkett bog mats are made from high-quality, durable, hard-wearing European and hardwoods, they last a long time, and this means they can be hired out multiple times. This translates to lower prices for customers. When you hire bog mats, you can choose from a wide range of sizes, and you can agree on a term that suits your needs. Whether you’re looking to rent a bog mat for a day, a week, a period of months, or even a year or longer, it’s possible to save money.

Is hiring better for me than buying?

There is no universal answer to this question, and the response will vary according to the individual client. If you’re looking for a bog mat for frequent use, and you’re involved in working on and overseeing projects that require a bog mat, it may make sense to invest in a bog mat. If, however, you’re taking on a one-off project, or you use bog mats occasionally, rather than frequently, hiring might be the best option. With hiring, you can access a range of sizes, and you could save a significant amount of money. Buying will be more cost-effective if you’re going to use your bog mat on a regular basis. Try and work out a per use estimate to help you decide which option works best. If there isn’t much of a difference, it’s best to buy. If you’re not going to get much use out of a bog mat, it’s wise to hire. If you find that you start using bog mats more frequently, you can always extend your hire agreement or switch from hiring to buying if you have projects lined up.

If you’re due to start work on a project and you need a bog mat, there are two options open to you. You could buy a bog mat, or you could choose to hire. Hiring makes financial sense for occasional use or one-off projects, while buying will save money in the long-term for frequent use. Think about your individual requirements and weigh up the pros and cons before you make a decision. If you still undecided then get in touch and let us help.
