How do I make my budget go further?

There are a number of ways you can make your budget go further.

Here are a few of my tips:

  1. Renting your lighting scheme. This way you get a big bang for your buck in year one. This spreads to cost, typically over a 3 or 5 year term. The longer the term the less you will pay each year for the product. But remember the install, removal and storage will still be at full value. You can sometimes spread the cost of any infrastructure work over the term of the contract. You will need to consult with your supplier to see what financing options are available.
  2. Shop around. If you prefer to purchase your motifs, whether the are pole mounts or cross street, some companies will sell you ex-hire items at a substantial discount from the list price. Look out for buy one get one free offers also. This usually happens at the beginning of a new year – start looking in January to March to ensure you don’t miss out on a great deal.
  3. Add to your scheme each year. Expanding and adding new elements on a yearly basis not only sees the scheme grow, but allows it to evolve when budget becomes available.
