How To Successfully Rent A Frac Tank For Work Operations

Frac tanks are instrumental pieces of equipment for the fracking industry. They're typically used for holding water and if you need one on a temporary basis, you can rent one out. Completing this rental transaction will be easy if you keep the following tips in mind.

Make Sure Sizing Is Correct

There are all sorts of sizes for frac tank rentals today. It's important to get the right size so that you have plenty of room for whatever is being stored, but not so much that you're paying for unused space.

Which size you go with ultimately depends on your particular fracking operations. How much water or other liquid do you plan on holding in this tank at one time? If you've completed fracking operations in the past, you may have a better idea. Or, you can just explain your fracking operations to the rental provider and they can recommend an ideal tank size.

Shop Around For Best Rental Rate

There are several frac tank rental providers you can work with today, and each one may have a different rate for their rental tanks. What you can do to find the best deal is gather as many quotes from these providers as you can.

You can then compare costs and go with a rental provider that's willing to give you the best deal. Just let the frac tank companies know what particular type of tank you need and how long you need it for. You'll then receive estimates in no time. 

Purchase Insurance

While this frac tank is in your possession, you're responsible for taking care of it. That's why it's so important to get insurance with it. Then if something happens to the tank by accident while it's in your care, you won't be out a lot of money.

The insurance policy you get should take care of most — if not all — of the costs associated with the damage. Just make sure you get this insurance policy in writing and verify that it covers the full value of the frac tank that you're renting out.

There may come a time when you need to rent a frac tank for an upcoming project that's not lasting forever. You can come out on the winning side of this rental as long as you pay attention to relevant details like tank size, insurance, and rental rate you're being charged.
