Rental Purchase Option and the Shared Equipment Program

Rental Purchase Option (RPO)

A Rental-Purchase Option (RPO) with the ALL Family of Companies is a rental agreement with the option to apply a percentage of your rental payments toward the purchase of the equipment.

How does an RPO work?

An RPO must be signed at the time of the original equipment rental. It does not obligate you to buy the equipment; it simply gives you the advantage of having that option at any time during quoted term. If you decide not to purchase the equipment, you may still continue to rent it through the remainder of the rental term.

What are the advantages of signing an RPO?

The biggest benefit: The dollars you’ve put into your rental can be credited toward your purchase. You will have already paid a large portion of the purchase price, possibly lowering your subsequent payments.

When you want to buy used equipment, remember that not every seller knows the history of the machine. So when you make the decision to purchase, it’s important to buy equipment from a company that stands behind it, because they’ve used and maintained it themselves.

And wouldn’t you rather be able to use the crane for a while and understand the machine before you make the important decision to buy?

If you should exercise your option to buy, you can be assured that you are purchasing top-notch equipment that has been maintained by our own technicians in our own shops.

The ALL fleet is one of the largest, most modern, and most technologically advanced in the equipment rental industry.


I just need a rental. Why sign an RPO?

  1. You just rented a crane for one year for a major project. As the job progresses, you may get more work on the site that requires you to rent the crane for another year or more. Having an RPO means you can purchase the crane and get credit for a portion of what you’ve already paid in rental—ultimately saving you money and giving you a long-term investment.
  2. Your business is growing, and you’d like to make a capital investment in a crane. But you’re not sure if you’ll have enough work to pay for it. An RPO is the perfect solution, because you are under no obligation to exercise your option to buy. An RPO is just that—an option. It’s the ultimate “try before you buy” situation.
  3. The RPO doesn’t add to your monthly rental cost or commit you to the purchase. It’s a simple and attractive option offered to you when you rent equipment from the ALL Family of Companies.

Shared Equipment Program (SEP)

Under a Shared Equipment Program (SEP), sometimes called Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), a project’s general contractor acts as the primary renter of all lift equipment for the job and then rents it to the subcontractors— a method that helps to eliminate waste, cut costs, improve productivity, and create positive outcomes. This collaborative approach can save up to 30% on construction costs and can accelerate project completion dates.
