Top 5 Benefits of Hiring a Generator Over Buying One

Why your business should consider hiring a generator

The fear of an unexpected power outage and the effect that may have on your business may lead you to believe that buying a generator is the best option. This isn’t usually true, as hiring a generator when necessary offers many advantages…

Emergency response

Generator hire allows you to rapidly respond to emergency situations. We are available 365 days a year and 24 hours a day to answer your calls and meet your generator requirements in prompt time frames. We have our own fleet of transportation vehicles so we do not have to rely on a third-party, meaning we can promise you speedy response times. Our Essex depot is about 20 miles outside of the capital, meaning we can quickly provide our generators London and beyond.


Investing in a generator is not usually necessary for most businesses as it would only be used on rare occasions. If you’re only going to need a generator for a short-term project or event then hiring is the smartest choice money-wise. You’ll also save money in the long run on maintenance.

Generators can also become quickly outdated with advancements in technology, so buyers may find themselves having to replace their generator every few years. We can assure you the most innovative, modern generators in our rental packages.

No maintenance required

The upkeep and maintenance of generators are extremely important to ensure they are safe and comply with regulations, but this can be costly and time-consuming. If you’re renting this is not something you will have to worry about as Templant’s rental machines are regularly maintained to guarantee a safe and effective performance.

Trust the experts

When using generators you need a lot of expert, technical knowledge. Hiring a generator means you don’t need to employ a technician in this field to permanently join your team. Instead you get to utilise our knowledge. We can tell you how to use your hired generator in the safest and most efficient way – as well as ensuring you comply with the extensive health and safety regulations.

You can also say goodbye to worrying about insurance and paperwork as that’s all covered in the rental process.

Access to a wide range of generators

Hiring means each time you need a generator you will have access to a wide and varied range. This means you can select a generator that is the most suited to your specific project or event meaning you will get the best performance. For example, if you need a generator that causes little noise, we can provide a hybrid model that offers a quiet performance.
