The decision to hire a money counter may seem simple, but it is not. If deals have your money now you probably already own one or more cash counters. You know that coin counters not only saves time, but increase accuracy. You could have regular exchanges or sales events that cash handling equipment. You must decide whether to try to get hold of your money counter and take it with you, or rent a machine on site. In almost all cases, renting is the best option for several reasons.
Packing and shipping is a big problem. If you bring your equipment, you need to package it and ship so that it arrive on time and in working condition. Money counting equipment is very sensitive and subject to lose calibration or transport damage. Rental companies know how to properly pack and ship your machine, so it will work properly when it arrives. They will also test and calibrate your equipment before sending to the rental website.
Something else to think about is that if you take your equipment on the road, how will be able to operate your business without that while it is not in the office? Why should the head office need to go without the use of the equipment?
If you can handle multiple locations at once, renting is the only way to go. We had a large couch, which was running a charity coin collection in more than 100 cities at once. They had to hire coin counters for all 100 sites in the same week. Renting was their best choice.
Renting is also a great way for you to try out newer models and features. Currency counting equipment is expensive and is constantly evolving with new features and functions. If you are renting a chance to try out the latest and best features without capital investment.
Another important consideration in your decision to buy or rent is accounting. Renting is an operating cost and is treated differently from the purchase, which is a capital expense. For tax purposes, the rental is fully depreciated and is not amortized over time as would a purchase. The rental costs are budgeted as part of the exhibition or event that is directly related to.
There are many reasons to hire a money counter sense. If you decide to rent, maintain your equipment as far in advance as possible. Rental companies to take your reservation a year in advance. During busy seasons scholarship machines simply can fully booked.
