Hiring a scaffold tower

It might be better to hire scaffolding equipment rather than buying depending on the requirements of the job. It will probably be better to hire scaffolding if

Your project is going to take less than 12 weeks
The building work is at a very high level e.g. over 6.0m
Your build is an awkward shape or curved

You are not happy or confident in erecting your own scaffold, in this instance it could be safer to hire it

This is just a few ideas of reasons you may want to consider hiring scaffolding or other equipment including ladders. However, there can be drawbacks to hiring your scaffold you should also be aware of to make a full informed decision.

You might have to pay an upfront deposit; this could be a 2 week hire charge that will be refunded upon return of the equipment
Full responsibility of the equipment will be in your hands, if something happens like it gets damaged or stolen you could end up paying huge charges. The security of your scaffold is stressful enough without having the added weight of the money you will pay or not getting your deposit back if an incident occurs
Make sure the equipment is clean when you return it, or you could end up paying a cleaning fee
