Port Equipment: Rent vs Own

If you’re in the intermodal industry, and you are looking at reach stackers for sale , then you probably are asking yourself the question: “I wonder if I should just rent these used empty container handlers … they are expensive!”. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. If you break down the numbers, you will see renting will cost you less in the short-term, but if you’re going to need one of these heavy lifters you may just want to fork up the dough! (no pun intended even though you are looking at forklifts!) At the end of the day you will just need to do what is best for your business model and make a sound decision with your CFO.
