The ALL Family of Companies has unveiled its Shared Equipment Program (SEP), a new approach to equipment rental that can save a substantial amount of time and money for construction projects.
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, and creates positive outcomes. More than just equipment, the project also gets support from the ALL team, including mechanics who conduct regular maintenance to keep machines in “rent-ready” condition as they change hands between subcontractors.
When multiple subcontractors arrange for their own equipment, depending on the job site, the ALL Family of Companies’ SEP Program can eliminate redundancy and waste, which can be as much as one-third of total project cost. In addition to extra costs, equipment redundancy also adds a level of congestion to job sites where space is a premium, which can affect everything from traffic to safety. The SEP addresses all these concerns, as ALL works with the general contractor to maximize efficient usage of lift equipment, the company said.
The program 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 crane types as small and versatile as mini/spider cranes or as large as 900-ton ATs and 1,000-ton crawlers, plus tower cranes, boom lifts/aerials/MEWPs and boom trucks.
