The Advantages of UPS Rental

09th June 2021

At Carter Sullivan, our flexible UPS rental service is an affordable and effective way of providing total peace of mind and protection for your critical power systems. We hold a stock of high-quality, second-hand uninterruptible power supplies that can be commissioned for use and installed within days. 

All of our UPS systems are tested and re-commissioned before being used. This ensures that they will provide 100% backup for your business.  

If you’ve never considered it before, here are some of the advantages of UPS rental with Carter Sullivan.


UPS rental services are a cost-effective way to provide the protection you need. You can spread the costs over a fixed period. The reduction in up-front cost is attractive for many businesses who prefer to pay for their UPS systems with affordable monthly instalments.

If you would like to take advantage of our UPS rental service, get in touch today to discuss your requirements.

Spreading the costs of a UPS system may enable you to get a larger and more powerful UPS that provides complete coverage for your organisation. Included in the price is the installation and commissioning of your UPS rental hire package.

We hold UPS systems from the world’s leading manufacturers, including Eaton, APC, Riello. We’re the UK’s leading partner too and are experts at maintaining these essential devices.

Rapid UPS installation

Bespoke UPS systems may take up to six weeks to design, install and commission. Our UPS rental service is available within a week, providing immediate security for your data centres and critical power systems.

We start all UPS hire requests in the same way by learning about your organisation and power requirements. We’ll conduct a free on-site survey to assess your needs before specifying a solution.

At the same time, we can begin creating a bespoke UPS package for your business. This includes the design, installation and maintenance of your UPS. We provide short-term cover and long-term solutions.

Built for growth

Our UPS rental offer is ideal for companies undergoing rapid growth. You can select the UPS size you need (in partnership with our in-house technical experts), and we’ll install it within weeks. If you find you need to increase the size of your UPS at any point, we’re flexible.

Rental hire periods can vary according to your requirements. Remember, you’re investing in a short term solution, not a system that gives you the freedom to flex up and down. In the long-term, we can work with you to design a power protection system based around your business.

Once your rental period ends, we’ll return to the site to decommission the UPS and remove it. It’s a complete solution.
