Choosing whether to hire or buy can be quite the juggling act, with budgetary considerations of course being uppermost. Many people who start by hiring as a short term measure come to realise that if they had a scrubber or sweeper on hand all the time, they could improve cleanliness and safety of their premises without using hours and hours of precious manpower. Sometimes, though, budgetary considerations mean that a brand new machine is not possible, but in that case, a second hand cleaning machine from SRS is a very sensible option.
Cost is clearly the main benefit, but as all SRS machines come to the customer following a very comprehensive refurbishment programme, they are as reliable as new. Sometimes the choice is between having a machine as against not having a machine but sometimes it can be a matter of having a higher specification or heavier duty product which still meets a lower budget. All fully refurbished units are completely stripped down to the chassis, built back up, fitted with new batteries and consumable and delivered with full operator training. If the customer is upgrading in the same general type of machine or is keeping the same model, the training can often be a useful reminder of some of the more basic areas of safe use of the unit – training is comprehensive but can sometimes be forgotten over time, so a refresher can be a very good thing, especially if staff have changed and cascade training of one worker by another has been happening for a while.
SRS offer ex-hire and fully refurbished options on the entire sales range which includes the pedestrian and ride-on battery powered sweepers and scrubber driers. Many of the units offered for sale are ex-hire and have been scrupulously maintained as well as thoroughly serviced before sale. Many of our customers buy the model they have been using but others take the opportunity to upgrade – give one of our friendly staff a call to discuss what would suit your needs the best. Some businesses upgrade because they have enlarged their premises and now need a ride-on rather than a pedestrian scrubber or sweeper. Others buy an extra machine – in a business where staff engaged on other tasks are also in charge of cleaning, it is often a financially sound option to have more than one cleaning machine as it frees up staff for more important duties.
Due to SRS’ large Hire Fleet of industrial cleaning equipment that we have maintained throughout its’ life, we always have availability of high standard, fully refurbished industrial floor sweepers and floor scrubber driers. The machines are extensively refurbished through our dedicated workshops and supplied with new batteries, consumables and warranty.
