Why lease your equipment?

Vehicles and equipment are getting more expensive. The average business can go into “budget shock” just doing the math on a new piece of equipment. A substantial down payment and high monthly payments can make it difficult to purchase outright.

Leasing allows you to get the equipment you need while reducing the impact on your company’s cash flow.

3 great reasons to lease:

  • Protect your cash flow by not spending the full price upfront.
  • Pay tax over time, on each monthly payment, instead of all at once.
  • Conserve your operating line for other priorities.

How does vehicle leasing work?

When you lease a vehicle or fleet of vehicles, you can reduce the monthly cost of ownership and avoid having to pay a lot of money upfront. Through a lease, you pay the difference between the initial cost of the vehicle and the residual value of that car after an agreed upon amount of time. That difference is known as “depreciation.”
