Frequently Asked Questions
How much will a generator hire costs will depend on several factors. The first is what type of generator you wish to hire. For instance, if you are looking for a diesel generator or a standby generator – these are fairly substantial in size which will mean that there is a lot more ‘hassle’ involved when transporting them to your desired locations.
Whereas if you decide to opt for a portable generator, these require a lot less maintenance and hassle transporting due to their size. Their size also means that you can be hooked up to power far quicker.
You will also need to take into consideration the general purpose of why you need the generator. Should it be to power an office facility, for example, you may need to opt for a more powerful generator – which may be more expensive to hire.
Providing power to a home might sound like a rather substantial job which would require a fairly large generator. However, this isn’t exactly the case and you will be surprised to know what kind of generator is best for home use is in fact a portable generator.
Though fairly short in height, what it makes up for is the running watts. Once powered, the starting watts of the portable generator will maintain its power output throughout its run time. Ensuring consistency throughout it being operational.
A portable generator is a rather popular type of generator due to its ability to provide overall home improvement in terms of power to your home. Therefore, we believe that it will be more than enough to complete the task at hand.
Regarding which generators are best to hire for events, there are several factors that you need to consider. The first of which is determining the power that will be used for said event. For instance, should you be planning for a specific outdoor event that is in a remote location (an outdoor wedding) for example – this will likely see the run time of the event finish late into the evening. Therefore, depending on your lighting situation, you will require a generator for your event that will reduce the risks of failing due to not being powerful enough.
As a result, we recommend some initial due diligence will be required as powering different types of events will require more power – and in turn, be more costly. For example, you should expect a generator that produces 7500 watts of power will be slightly more expensive than if you were to opt for a 3500-watt generator.
Often you will find that a portable generator will suffice, however, a diesel generator may also be an option in order for your event to run smoothly. Should you be hosting an outdoor sporting event, depending on the scale of it – a fairly low wattage generator might be a sufficient power source. This is subject to change depending on the scale of the event.
Should you be hosting an event that takes place outdoors, such as a wedding for example. You may be wondering what size generator do I need for my wedding? In essence, depending on the scale of your wedding will determine which generator you will need.
For example, if your wedding is in a rather secluded area that will require a large volume of power – the power factor with running watts should be at the forefront of your mind. Determining the power required will be the key factor.
If you are hiring music entertainment throughout the wedding, you should look to provide a kVA generator that can generate around 2400 watts.
