Renting A Leica BLK360? What To Know Before You Rent

If you’re interested in renting a Leica BLK360, Datum Tech Solutions has made a name for itself as a company offering high-quality 3D scanner rental opportunities and remote and in-person training.

Leica BLK360 Rentals are Customizable

When you’re renting a Leica 3D Laser Scanner, it’s important to know that your rental packages can be customizable based on your overall goals and project scope. This ensures that you get the right accessories and other tools necessary to get the most out of your rental.Whether you’re just looking to rent the Leica BLK360 or are also interested in renting a transport shell or global adapters, Datum Tech Solutions can help you get the tools you need to succeed.

3D Scanner Rental Offers a Chance to Demo Equipment

3D scanning technology can be expensive to invest in right off the bat. At the same time, total stations and 3D laser scanning equipment is constantly evolving, so you may not want to spend a bunch of money on a new device until you’ve tried it first. With a monthly rental option, you can test drive newer devices like the Leica BLK360 to see how they compare to your existing tools. This helps you invest in new equipment wisely, after field testing it yourself for a nominal rental fee.

Cost Varies from Rental Company to Rental Company

Speaking of fees, costs vary from rental company to rental company, so make sure to shop around in order to get the best deals. While there are various steps you can take in customizing your rental to manage cost to a certain extent, sometimes deals just come down to timing. A great example of this is the fact that Datum Tech Solutions is currently offering a limited-time deal on monthly rentals of the Leica BLK360 for just $2,250/month. 

Training Consultations Can Be Beneficial

If you’re trying out new equipment, finding a rental company that also offers professional training can be a major boon for making the most of your rental period. From in-depth training to introductory courses and on-site help, Datum Tech Solutions is here to help you have a great rental experience from start to finish. Laser scanner training from Datum Tech Solutions allows you to get expert advice, quick answers, and hands-on experience using your rental equipment.

Consider the Scope of Your Project

When deciding whether or not to rent a Leica 3D Laser Scanner, sometimes the scope of your project is the best guide. For example, in some situations—such as one off projects—a rental is a no-brainer. However, if you need to capture multiple assets at once or are surveying a very large area, sometimes having multiple pieces of equipment makes sense for the job. Make sure to consider your goals as you evaluate the pros and cons of 3D scanner rentals.
