Key Questions When Renting Generators

Create detailed specifications regarding requirements, usage and site conditions.


Front-line technicians in maintenance and engineering departments rely on a core arsenal of equipment and tools to complete many daily tasks throughout institutional and commercial facilities. But to handle the full range of maintenance and engineering tasks, managers often supplement this arsenal with key pieces of rental equipment, according to an article from Building Operating Management on the FacilitiesNet website.

The equipment rental process can be challenging, requiring managers to gather and analyze a great deal of information before making a final selection. To help them sort through and prioritize this information, let’s focus on three important questions to answer before renting generators. The three questions:

• What physical requirements must the equipment meet?

• What controls, accessories, and documentation should the equipment have?

• What are the most important worksite conditions?

Managers also should specify acceptable manufacturers, as well as details of the qualifications of the company supplying the equipment, whether it is the manufacturer or other party. The supplier must be factory authorized with factory-trained technicians and provide necessary transportation to expedite drop-off, maintenance trips and pickup, and it must be within designated miles radius and maintain standard parts in inventory available within a designated time 24 hours a day seven days a week.
