Renting vs. Buying Heavy Lifting Equipment - What's right for me?

Many customers assume that having a long-term need for heavy lifting equipment means their only choice is to buy, but Doral Equipment Rental offers long-term rental options of our entire fleet of equipment. Renting has many advantages compared to buying, including:

  • Custom discounts depending on the length of your rental period.
  • Leave the upkeep to us – get expertly-maintained units, inspected by experienced, certified technicians.
  • No need to find permanent storage for large equipment.
  • We want to make you look good! We take pride in the appearance of our equipment so your company is well-represented on the job site.
  • You can maintain company branding onsite by adding your logo onto rental equipment. It’s simple and there’s no additional charge.

We don’t want exhaust fumes in our facility, are there any options?

Versa-Lift Electric forklifts, available exclusively from Doral Equipment Rentals, are preferred for sterile environments like the Food and Beverage and Technology industries. The Versa-Lift E-Series is available in models 25/35E and 40/60E. Contact a Doral Equipment Rental expert for details.

Which models of Versa-Lift forklift rentals do you offer?

We offer the widest range of Versa-Lift options in the world, including the 25/35, 40/60, and 60/80 as well as the E series options (electric models). The Versa Lift 25/35 is the most compact fork lift enabling hydraulic lifting up to 35,000 pounds. The Versa-Lift 40/60 is a mid-sized fork lift capable of lifting 60,000 pounds. The Versa-Lift 60/80 is powerful enough to compete with hydraulic gantries, with a staggering 80,000 pound lifting capacity on a seven foot wide forklift. The Versa-Lift 60/80 is significantly faster and easier to set up than a hydraulic gantry while providing comparable lifting capacity.

What’s the advantage of renting a hydraulic gantry vs. an overhead crane?

Hydraulic gantries are not restricted to one area. Gantry systems are mobile and can be moved to accommodate multiple lifting projects at your facility. These heavy lifting systems offer control and stability, even in confined spaces.

What company handles the delivery of your rental equipment?

Transportation is handled in-house. In-house transportation ensures timely delivery and the most competitive pricing available. Rely on us and you won’t have to worry about calling multiple logistics companies trying to figure out where your equipment is. We understand the importance of receiving your heavy duty forklift, hydraulic gantry, Traksporter or other equipment on time and we can handle everything from start to finish. We are committed to your complete satisfaction.

Will you deliver equipment to Canada?

Yes, we will rent and deliver to customers in the U.S. or Canada.
