As a barricade equipment rental company, we at Action Barricade are often asked whether or not our client’s should rent or purchase barricades for their next big event or street party, which we always answer by explaining to them that they should appropriately weigh all of the options available to them.

This is something we are always more than happy to help our clients explore which is why we are dedicating this weeks’ blog to exploring the pros and cons of whether you should rent or purchase barricades.  We hope this information will help you make the most informed decision regarding your available options.

The Pros and Cons of Renting Barricades

The biggest pro for renting barricades is that our professional installers will deliver and install all of the equipment you requested per your exact specifications in the minimalist of time.  Once your scheduled event is over we will promptly arrive to pick up the equipment.  All of the equipment within our portfolio has been designed to meet strict reliability and safety requirements.

The cost of renting barricades can sometimes tends to land on the con side of the fence.   However, we make renting barricades easier on your budget, by ensuring our rental prices remain affordable.  We won’t push you into renting more equipment than you’ll need.  This will enable you to save more money on the cost of your rental; no matter the length of your rental period; whether it be days, weeks or months.

The Pros and Cons of Purchasing Barricades

One of the most common reasons why our event coordinator clients’ prefer to purchase barricades is to save money.  However, this is only recommended for those that plan the same events, in the same location year after year.  If you have the money, and space, up front to invest in the purchase of barricades then by all means go right ahead.

Wait, we mentioned space, right?  Yep, we most certainly did!  If you don’t have the space to store this type of equipment at your location, or you only host an event a handful of times per year, then you may want to reconsider renting barricades rather than purchasing them.  Remember this equipment will require considerable space and that renting a storage locker will only increase your expense.
