Rent a pressure washer? Six years ago, I would have said yes. But not anymore!
Their engines have become more powerful & lighter. And the newest generation of pressure washer pumps are more reliable & longer lasting.
And now there are a lot of websites that offer power washers for homeowners, so retail prices are extremely competitive!
Let's take a look at the rental cost so you can decide if you should rent or buy:
Where I live, in southeastern Pennsylvania, you can rent a quality gas pressure washer for a half day, for $60 to $70. This is at an independent rental store.
And, at my local Home Depot, they have a rental center, and you can get a 2000PSI gas unit for $50 for 4 hours. Or for $72 for the whole day.
And don't forget, you'll need to leave a $100 or $150 refundable security deposit.
But the average homeowner can now purchase their own electric or gas pressure washer starting at only $175.00 to $300.00+! Click here to see my review of the best electric pressure washers or click here for the best gas pressure washer reviews.
My Recommendation? Buying your own is a better value than renting one! You will save time & money in the long run and you'll alway have your equipment ready to use!
