I have to disagree with you on this one fblandscape. It doesn't make sense. If you only need a piece of equipment a few times a year there is no sense in buying it. When you have to rent a piece of equipment to do a particular job the rental fee is charged back to the acct. This is something that the customer needs to be aware of up front. That way they may want to seek bids from other companies. Another option is subbing the work out to someone who does have the equipment.
