A mobile boiler is essential. If your facility's regular boiler has failed, you can bring in these mobile boilers and continue operations while the regular boiler is being fixed. Mobile boilers, which are held in mobile boiler rooms, can be moved to different parts of the property as needed, as long as there is space to hold the boiler room trailer. If you work in a facility that cannot wait for a rental company to deliver a mobile boiler, buying your own mobile boiler room may seem very tempting. Before you stop renting, however, consider what owning a mobile boiler would entail.
When you're done using a mobile boiler unit that you own, you're still going to have to store it somewhere on your property. If you have the space, that's perfect. It can stay in one spot and be hooked up to or detached from your buildings as needed. But if you don't have the space—say, the spot where the rented boiler sat was not one you could devote permanently to a boiler room trailer—owning a mobile boiler is going to be difficult. Devoting space to the mobile boiler for storage is a lot different than devoting space to the mobile boiler for just a short time during repairs.
Immediate Use and No Waiting
A major advantage to having your own mobile boiler is that you can hook it up and start using it very quickly, compared to having to wait for a rental company to deliver a mobile boiler. If you're in a field where downtime due to a broken boiler is something you can't afford, having your own would be much more convenient. But again, there's a catch. If the mobile boiler has not been used in a while, it may take you longer to check over the machinery to ensure it's ready to go than you think. And, you'd have to be the company to check over the boiler. When you rent a mobile boiler, you get one that's verified to be in working condition without any maintenance on your part.
Speaking of maintenance and repairs, when you own a mobile boiler, you get to handle and pay for maintenance and repairs. If the mobile boiler breaks down, too, you have to go find another one. If you only rent mobile boilers, you don't have to worry about repairs; if something goes wrong, the rental company should handle it, assuming your contract does not place repairs on you. And, you don't have to worry about any maintenance save for daily issues while the boiler is on your property.
