Renting UPS? Can you? Should you?

No matter where you’re at in the world, it’s been impossible to avoid the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and while it looks like we’ll (thankfully) avoid a double-dip recession, there’s still a need to be more cautious than usual when it comes to how businesses spend their money. 

That being said, there are just certain things that are non-negotiable and even as prices rise, companies need to sustain a certain level of investment in some specific areas – your power supply specifically. Emergency power provisions and options exist for a reason – and that’s largely to protect you, your employees and your customers from downtime. That’s why it’s important you don’t scrimp on your investment in a UPS battery or power supply. 

The flip side of that flip side however, is that it might make more sense to rent a unit as opposed to purchasing one. We haven’t really unpacked rentals on this blog yet, but today, we’re going to talk about some of the reasons they might be a viable option for your business. Let’s jump right in!

Minimizes liabilities

When you BUY a UPS Battery, you don’t simply stop paying once the battery is installed. You have to service it, pay for maintenance and system updates. Those costs can add up over time. With a rental, you’re guaranteeing that you’re getting a well-maintained UPS battery that’s able to be connected and more often than not – ongoing maintenance is scheduled with 24/7 technical support. So if you’re looking to save some bucks, this might be for you.

Immediate savings 

Not only do you not have to worry about spending money on maintenance and other servicing needs, but it frees up that money to potentially be used elsewhere in your business – regardless of what that might be. So not only will you be adequately protected, but you’ll also have the flexibility of bringing other areas of your business up to speed as well. 

A scalable solution

One great thing about UPS battery rentals is that they can more or less grow right along with your business. Meaning that if your business increases, you can upgrade your rental and have a larger power supply. So for smaller and medium sized businesses that are expecting growth and need backup power but can’t break the budget to get it – this might be a great solution for you. 

Renting a UPS power supply is a cost effective, flexible solution that can keep your business protected while also giving you the flexibility you need to grow your business.
