How does a rent free welding gas bottle work?

You’re a welding business that uses a lot of gas, and you’ve been renting your bottles for years. But, with rental prices escalating, you’re now beginning to wonder if there’s a more cost-effective solution. The good news is that you can now buy a rent free welding gas bottle, and save.
