Improves Employee Retention

These days, it can be hard to find qualified employees who care about taking care of customers. It's important to offer many incentives in order to attract the most qualified candidates. Having new heavy equipment for operators can be a huge selling point. After all, most heavy equipment operators have worked in older heavy equipment that is just not all that fun to operate. If you want to boost your operators' happiness, comfort, and work ethic, having new heavy equipment is a good step.

Makes a Great First Impression

Customers can have more confidence in your company when they see you show up to their job with new heavy equipment. New heavy equipment can set your company apart, which is important when you're in a very competitive market for your niche. New heavy equipment will send the message that you care about your fleet and your operators, as well as about getting the job done promptly and efficiently. It also sends the message that your company is successful and meets their goals.

Gives You a Competitive Advantage

As you've seen in our first blog post, new heavy equipment offers better performance and technology that can improve the speed and quality of your jobs, which gives you a competitive edge over your competition.

Is An Investment for the Future

When you invest in new heavy equipment, you are investing in your business's future. After all, with proper care, heavy equipment will last decades. When you purchase a new piece of Cat heavy equipment, you'll be investing in your business for years to come. Plus, at the end of the day, you'll own that equipment, which is valuable in and of itself.

Can Have Tax Incentives

There are tax advantages to purchasing heavy equipment. Oftentimes, you can deduct the full price you've paid for your machines as a business expense from your income up to $1,000,000. This is great news for small businesses and has allowed them to upgrade to new equipment sooner. Speak to a tax professional for advice today.
