Buying a Pressure Washer Vs. Renting a Pressure Washer

From fences to decks, siding to lawn furniture, cars to garage floors; the places and things you can clean with a pressure washer are seemingly endless. So does it make more sense to rent or buy a pressure washer?

If you only use a pressure washer once or twice a year, it may make more financial sense to rent a pressure washer or you may want to hire someone with their own machine to clean your home and items.

Benefits of renting a pressure washer include:

  • No Storage Hassle
  • No Equipment Maintenance
  • Save Money – will be less expensive to rent if you are only planning occasional use.
  • Conserve Water – pressure washers actually use less water than using a garden hose.
  • Restore & Preserve exterior surfaces by removing damaging agents, such as dirt, salt, grease and mold.

If you’re a weekend warrior and wash your house, patio, deck and outdoor furniture several times each year, you may want to purchase a sturdy and reliable washer. Mi-T-M offers a huge variety of residential pressure washers, available with an electric motor or gas engine, and ranging from 1400 PSI to 3000 PSI.

Make sure you compare like models when deciding to buy or rent a pressure washer. Once you know which motor and type of washer best fits your needs, you can calculate the hourly cost of renting vs. buying. Renting a pressure washer may cost $50-$150 dollars per day. Buying a pressure washer, depending on the model and motor, runs $300 and up. Therefore, 2-3 rentals may be the same price as buying new.

When you rent a pressure washer, you don’t have to maintain the machine. However, you may have to pay for rental insurance. When you buy a pressure washer, you’ll need to pay for your own repairs, but you’ll own the machine outright. With proper maintenance you’ll have it for many years.

 

Availability

Availability is another factor. If you own your own washer, you can use it whenever and wherever you need it. However, if you wish to rent, know that there are some seasons and times of year when washers are in high demand. Renting during those times may be more difficult or may cost more.

    Are the residential electric pressure washers made in the USA or are they imported?

      The Mi-T-M ChoreMaster 1400 PSI pressure washers are imported as are most residential electric pressure washers. However, Mi-T-M offers the CD Series and JP Series electric pressure washers ranging from 2000 PSI to 4000 PSI that are made in the USA with globally sourced components.
