Why should you dry hire power cable?
The benefits of dry-hiring over buying are obvious, given the high cost of copper cable and the need to have it constantly in use to justify the expense. Companies often choose to rent cable for financial record benefits, i.e. to avoid listing the equipment on their assets list. H07RN-F cable is very heavy and requires a large storage space and heavy duty handling equipment such as forklift trucks. In addition, cable is also at a high risk of theft, therefore companies choose to temporarily hire cables and return them to the rental company to avoid this risk. This type of hiring also gives you more control over your project, specifically in the events industry, when project may last just a couple of weeks. Finally, companies rent mains leads to avoid the labour of terminating the powerlock cables with power connectors.
