Lets see the fact that the drop off and pick up rates quadrupal when crossing into manhattan. Hey I know it cost 30 to get over the bridge but being charged 450.00 for pickup/delivery is ridiculous. The rental was only 350 for the day. ( for those wondering rented a 40 ft boom lift)companies charge way too much QUOTE]
How do you know they are charging too much, verses you just not wanting to pay their rate? What benchmark are you making your comment based of off?
That is what I did. If I had a place to store a boom, I would just buy my own but for the amount of times I actually use one it does not make sense. I learned this lesson when I bought my 60 foot ladder. Came in handy when I was younger and didn't mind lugging it around. Now it collects dust. The ultimate goal of course is to just stay competitive.Why not just price/bill accordingly for the project
