Quicker sign off for hire vs capital sales budgets
There will come a point when your temperature control equipment will need replacing. Depending on your requirements, this can be a costly process that will require capital expenditure sign off. Under normal political and market conditions, this may not be a problem, but in times of uncertainty, this can cause problems. Hire often comes from a different budget and so if no capital is available hire can still be an option.
Take control of your budget with one regular payment
Depending on the demands placed on your temperature control equipment, the quality of water and glycol used in the system (where relevant) and how well they are maintained, in-efficiencies, breakdowns and problems can occur. These problems can be costly to rectify, both in terms of the cost of fixing the problem, and also the cost of any downtime caused as a result of the failed equipment.
For one regular payment you can predict your costs with no nasty surprises as hire coves maintenance, breakdowns and repairs (so long as equipment not neglected or misused). If it can’t be repaired, replacement equipment will be provided in a timely manner. This means you can control your budget and lower any downtime caused as a result of the problem.
Flexibility of hire allows you to expand as your production expands
With ICS Cool Energy the hire is flexible, we are willing to flex equipment size up and down as our customers needs change without any penalty, although the hire rate will increase if the equipment gets bigger. Our hire agreements range from 1 week to 5 years and therefore you can hire temperature control equipment according to your budget and confidence in business growth. With no deposit required, your initial outlay to hire equipment is going to be significantly less than purchasing it, with the added bonus of knowing you have peace of mind with everything included in your regular payment.
Reduced rates the longer the contract
The longer the customers commitment, the lower the weekly hire charge. Meaning a 5 or 10 year contract can greatly reduce your regular payments making hire much more affordable. Purchasing the equipment on its own might cost less than hiring it over a long period, but when you factor in service, maintenance and any breakdown costs over the products lifecycle, it is often much cheaper to hire. We offer 5 contract options to provide a flexible hire solution to meet every need and requirement.
No need to worry about F-Gas/HFC phase down
F-gasses are a range of greenhouse gasses commonly used in modern refrigeration and air-condition units and are governed by stringent regulations. The regulations in place are seeking to phase them out in favour of more climate friendly refrigerants with lower Global Warming Potential (GWP). The phase down is taking place over 2 year periods.
Replacing your temperature control equipment, or refrigerant (if possible) can be a costly exercise. We ensure that our hire equipment will remain legal and would, if necessary, exchange equipment if it was ever to became illegal. For example, if you took out a 5 year contract and 3 years into the contract, new legislation came into place accelerating the phase down.
