Deciding between purchasing or hiring a grabber truck


If you have never considered a contract grab hire truck before? Working with ND Brown will be a much more cost-effective venture than purchasing the vehicle outright.

We believe contract hire makes perfect business sense, plus it will minimise the risks and overheads for your business.

For this blog, we will talk you through the difference between leasing and buying a vehicle.

Explaining the benefits of grab hire trucks

With our many years in the grab hire industry, we have heard every question possible relating to contract hire and the benefits of long-term hire instead of buying a vehicle.

Whether you are a transport manager tasked with deciding on a new fleet of vehicles, or a smaller operation, we are here to help you make an informed decision.

Is it cheaper to hire?

Buying a vehicle for your business can be a costly exercise, and can be one of the biggest overheads you could encounter.

By using a hired grabber truck you can minimise your initial outlay as you do not need to find the money for a vehicle upfront. It also allows you to plan your future financial commitments surrounding your vehicles.

If you are a new business, cash flow is always a constant concern, so cutting out a large overhead could have an impact on how successful you are in the first 12 months or so.

Why should I work with ND Brown?

There are plenty of hire companies out there, but none with the reputation of N.D Brown when it comes to grabber and hot box trucks.

We pride ourselves in being experts in our field, plus we will be able to offer all the advice you need before you decide on the right vehicle for your requirements.

If you have any questions or there is something we haven’t covered here, please do not hesitate to contact us now.
