Road construction without the right machinery leads to historical abysses. Back then, roads were built that are still visible and usable today, but at enormously high costs and great wear and tear on human resources.
Today's road construction is characterised by the sensible use of durable construction machinery in the hands of professionally trained personnel. This creates sustainable, long-lasting connections from A to B using variable costs (machinery) and fixed costs (workers).
Depending on the type of project, project location and the number of projects one wants to serve in business life, the question thus arises: "Rent, buy - used or new?"
In this category there is plenty of information on this from and about manufacturers, dealers and resellers of road construction machinery.
The topic of construction machinery covers a wide variety of vehicle types used in building construction and civil engineering.
General buying rules for road construction machinery cannot be given. For example, a company in Hamburg may well have the right machines in its fleet, but if a smaller project has to be carried out in Munich, for example, renting machines in Bavaria is more worthwhile than transporting and using your own machines.
To be considered
The requirements for the road construction machines must also be considered. The machines are subjected to extremely heavy work. Among other things, they put a strain on the hydraulics, engine and gearbox, but also on axles, joints, tyres and much more.
Spare parts supply is also an important issue. Is the year of manufacture recent enough for spare parts to still be available? Does the construction machine have to go to an authorised dealer or can the service be provided by qualified personnel from independent dealers? Are the spare parts available on the free market or do they have to be imported from other countries / continents first?
So each machine and each manufacturer must be considered individually, because none and none has only advantages. Every manufacturer and every device has its own strengths.
It is also important to determine exactly what the actual requirements of the road construction machine are in order to optimally align the investment.
It is therefore important to compare in detail where the strengths lie, what additional investment can be expected in the long term and how one's own wishes/expectations can be sensibly set against the range of road construction machines on offer.
In this category, we help with contact options for manufacturers (new machines), used dealers (low to high operating hours), brokers (procurement) and rental companies.
