MCAA Releases 2014-2015 Tool & Equipment Rental Guide


ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) has released a 2014-2015 Tool & Equipment Rental Guide. As with previous editions, MCAA members receive free online access to the new edition, which is available for purchase by non-members.

The Tool & Equipment Rental Guide is MCAA’s comprehensive, current guide to cost recovery for commonly used tools and equipment. The 2014-2015 edition has been completely revised and updated. Like previous editions, it includes tools and equipment of special interest to mechanical construction, service and plumbing contractors.

The rental rates in the guide are based on ownership and operating costs for contractor-owned equipment. These rates are derived from formulas and data developed by EquipmentWatch, which developed the guide on MCAA’s behalf, and from analytic methods used in the construction industry.

The new edition includes an appendix containing a Regional Rate Adjustment Table to help contractors adjust the rates in the guide for their state’s economic conditions. Lists of the small tools typically charged to the cost of a job and typical expendable items also are included, as is a chart to help contractors adjust for fuel rate fluctuations that may occur between editions of the guide.
