Radio rentals


WCI offers a radio rental program that accommodates individual radios and large quantities. For a low monthly rental fee, we offer radio equipment you can rely on. The radios you need are set to your specifications before they leave our shop.


We know your radio communication needs vary from project to project, which is why we offer a radio rental program that accommodates individual radios and large quantities. Rent radio equipment you can rely on, already set to your specifications before you even leave our shop.

Renting communications equipment (two-way radios and repeaters) has increased in popularity for a variety of reasons. A few key contributors to the growth of equipment rentals include the rising cost of purchasing equipment and an unpredictable market, which has forced companies to find ways to save money wherever they can. In many instances, renting has become a viable option and provides businesses the ability to cut costs and run a more financially stable company. 

Here are some benefits that your company will see if you decide to begin renting communications equipment from WCI.

Low Initial Purchase Cost

Purchasing brand new communications equipment can be expensive and can make an impact on your company’s budget. Purchasing can be a long-term investment that ties you down to particular items. Renting communications equipment avoids the upfront costs associated with purchasing and allows you to better allocate your financial resources.

Industry Canada Licensing

While owning communications equipment, you are required to license your frequencies with Industry Canada, which can sometimes be an unexpected cost to your company. While renting communication equipment from WCI, your licensing fee is included in your monthly rental cost. There’s no need to pay a separate fee to Industry Canada because we have that covered for you.

Less Radio Equipment Maintenance Costs

When you own equipment, you also have to consider the cost of upkeeping your equipment, which includes programming and firmware upgrades. Although maintenance is still important for communications equipment, costs will be significantly lowered compared to purchased equipment.

Rentals allow you to focus on the near future rather than taking the time to plan out a long-term maintenance plan.

Shielding from Market Fluctuation

Rising or sinking costs of equipment or the number of jobs available are all out of your control. Renting two-way radios enables you to cushion your company from unpredictable financial downturns that may arise. Rather than committing to communications equipment, renting allows for a flexible option that makes it easier to handle the rise and fall of market forces.

No Equipment Depreciation Costs

When you own equipment, you incur considerable depreciation costs. As value continues to depreciate, it makes it more difficult to recover the cost of your initial investment. Although all companies operate differently, consider renting radio equipment to avoid losses associated with depreciation.

Project-Specific Two-Way Radio Rentals

Typically, companies are balancing a number of projects at once. Rather than incurring logistical costs of transferring communication equipment and sharing them among multiple job sites, consider renting specific pieces of equipment for particular projects. This eliminates any logistical delays that you may experience and provides each jobsite with the appropriate resources to get the project finished in an efficient manner.

Solve Equipment Storage Issues

While owning equipment, companies must have storage solutions in place to keep equipment when it is not in use. Equipment that is not stored properly or exposed to harsh weather conditions may depreciate faster. Additionally, warehouse or storage space is an additional cost for companies. While renting, your company may not need to worry about long-term storage. This saves you time needed to plan out the logistics, as well as the cost of storage.
