Concrete Batch Plant RentalsJune 16, 2020
Although infrequent, some contractors and concrete batch plant dealers do provide monthly concrete batch plant rentals for a specific project. While a typical concrete batch plant has an average life span of 35 years, they do require a disciplined maintenance program and an operator that thoroughly understands how to produce cost-effective concrete.
Typical monthly rates are 7% - 10% of the equipment replacement value plus $2 per yard produced. This rental structure provides a minimum rental payment when the plant sits idle as the project prepares for the next concrete pour. A minimum of 9 consecutive months of rental is a common requirement. An 80/20 buyout option is sometimes available allowing for 80% of the equipment rental to be applied to the purchase price of the concrete batch plant. Move-on and move-off costs are additional costs and paid by the renter. Daily, weekly, and monthly service is provided by the renter as well as replacement of any damaged or wearable items.
