The All Family of Companies in the USA has unveiled its Shared Equipment Program (SEP) as a new approach to equipment rental.
The SEP can save a substantial amount of time and money for construction projects, All said.
The ALL Family of Companies has unveiled it’s Shared Equipment Program (SEP), a new approach to equipment rental.
A project’s general contractor acts as the primary renter of all lift equipment for the job and then rents it to the subcontractors, a method that helps to eliminate waste, cuts costs, improves productivity. More than just equipment, the project also gets support from the All team, including mechanics who maintain machines to keep them in “rent-ready” condition as they change hands between subcontractors.
When multiple subcontractors arrange for their own equipment, depending on the job site, SEP can eliminate redundancy and waste, which can be as much as a third of the total project cost, All said. In addition to extra costs, equipment redundancy adds a level of congestion to job sites where space is at a premium, which can affect everything from traffic to safety.
The SEP addresses all these concerns, All said, as it works with the general contractor to maximise efficient usage of lift equipment.
The programme works best when all subcontractors have ready access to equipment that meets their needs, from steelworkers who may require hefty all terrain equipment to painting and electrical contractors whose finishing work requires access equipment like scissor lifts.
All’s equipment lineup includes cranes from mini or spider cranes up to 900 US ton all terrains and 1,000 ton crawlers, plus tower cranes, boom lifts, aerials, MEWPs and boom trucks.
