Hiring a UPS vs Buying a UPS

There could be several reasons or circumstances why hiring a UPS is the right option for your business rather than purchasing a UPS backup solution.

You may need temporary hire for an existing UPS failure out of warranty and are waiting for a repair due to long lead times on a spare part. It may be that you have an emergency, and you need protection as a matter of urgency, or your business has a temporary extra power demand.

Specialist Power Systems can help. No matter what situation you may be in we have the correct hire solution for you and your business. Our team of experts will work with you to make sure you get the UPS system suitable for your business. Read on to see how our services work.

How Our Temporary UPS Hire Services Work

We start with a free site survey. We then provide a full quotation including any electrical works and ensure your system is offloaded, installed, positioned, and commissioned as part of the handover process to meet your timescales.

All UPS hire systems are fully checked and tested by our certified engineers prior to dispatch. At the end of the rental period our UPS engineers will decommission and remove them from your site as part of our Specialist Power hire contract. We also offer a range of generator hire packages to work alone or in parallel with a UPS hire.
