Getting that big paint job or completing that one-time project at home doesn’t require owning the equipment when so many companies offer paint sprayer rentals around the country. The painting industry is a massive market.
Homeowners and business owners are consistently needing to get their properties painted. It only makes sense that there would be a market for those that can’t afford to purchase the expensive airless paint sprayers typically used for medium and large residential and commercial jobs. They can also save thousands over contractors, or make thousands for painting professionals that are entering the business and don’t have the capital to purchase one outright.
Where to Rent
There are literally thousands of locations to rent paint sprayers all over the United States as well as the rest of the world. Local tool rental stores, like A-Team Rentals in Texas, carry these items as an investment that produces huge returns according to the American Rental Association. They consider paint spraying equipment to be one the top ten investments in the tool rental industry. The Home Depot carries paint sprayers in all of their stores, and they are the largest home improvement chain around the world. There are few places that one can’t be located or visited. Sunbelt Rentals is another country wide chain that offers airless paint sprayers as one of their standard rental items. Airlessco even offers support for any tool rental company that is interested in providing these much needed items. Any local tool rental shop will either have paint sprayers rentals available, or be able to direct a consumer or professional to someone that does.
Cost of Renting
Rates on any type of tool rentals vary from location to location even within the same company chains. They also change the rates according to the length of time that customers are going to use the paint sprayer rental. The best thing to do is to contact the local equipment rental company and verify their rates before going down to pick one up. They also offer insurance on most of their equipment in case something happens to it while the consumer or professional is utilizing the equipment. The rates are generally low and usually only amount to a few dollars over the course of a small job. Rates for renting can range from $90.00 a day at Sunbelt Rentals for a paint sprayer that operates at .47 gallons per minute to $130.00 a day for one that sprays up to .80 gallons per minute. When renting these same paint sprayers weekly or monthly, the ranges of the rates are $250.00 to $345.00 and $710.00 to $965.00 respectively. Considering large residential and commercial paint jobs often cost thousands of dollars, paint sprayer rentals can be a budget saver.
Thing to Consider When Renting Paint Sprayers
- Volume of coverage needed
- Length of the job
- Type of application
- Testing the equipment
- Cleaning the equipment
- Future needs of equipment
- Cost of the rental versus cost of purchasing equipment
- Return on investment
Other costs that are associated with paint sprayer rentals include a clean up fee, if it is returned without proper cleaning. In fact, if the equipment isn’t cleaned, it can cause permanent damage that can result in the renter having to purchase the paint sprayer. Always clean the paint sprayers immediately after use. The rental company will explain the process of cleaning their particular type of paint sprayer rental before leaving the store. There are also resources located on the websites of the manufacturers that will detail step-by-step procedures for cleaning the equipment. Various airless paint sprayers and HVLP paint sprayers have similar procedures but can vary in the actual steps.
