Why You Should Rent.
Are you debating whether to rent or buy medical equipment? MedSTAR Medical would like to offer some of the reasons that many of our clients RENT rather than buy.

When equipment is used infrequently, the prudent manager will rent rather than buy. The rule-of-thumb calls for renting when utilization of the equipment is less than 70%.
Owning specialty equipment brings along with it a number of responsibilities:
Enough equipment in stock to meet the volume and care needs of the caregiver
Somewhere to store that equipment when not in use
The ability to get the equipment to the patient in a timely fashion when it is required
A 24/7 operation to respond to, and resolve, in-field failure of equipment
Cleaning and disinfecting equipment thoroughly between patients
Adherence to a regular equipment maintenance schedule
Stocking relevant parts to allow support of routine maintenance
If you cannot meet the above responsibilities, renting is a viable option.
Renting allows the use of what is needed for the task at hand rather than what is in hand at the time that the need arises
If equipment ownership is not a part of the organizationís core business, capital purchase priorities may result in the owned equipment becoming obsolete. Technology obsolescence is not an issue when you rent
No property tax payments for rental equipment
Renting allows capital to be used for core business activities

If you have questions, please call us at 813.626.1333 or email our sales department. We would be glad to assist you further.
