Why You Should Consider Leasing Your Equipment?
Q:I am purchasing a new piece of equipment for my company. Last time I bought new equipment I made the mistake of sinking $75,000 into machinery that became obsolete before I paid off the bank. I have heard that leasing, rather than an outright purchase, is a smart way to go. What are the advantages of leasing as opposed to an outright purchase?
A: Many business owners are finding that leasing new equipment is the most cost effective way to make that new acquisition. Faced with the limited choices a company has when purchasing new equipment, leasing serves as a tool that allows the equipment to pay for itself.
When it comes to acquiring equipment, there are a few alternatives, you can pay cash, use you existing bank line of credit, or lease. There are a number of reasons why 8 out of 10 American businesses have embraced leasing to finance their equipment. Among the many reasons are that leasing...
Conserves Capital - Frees up working capital for more productive operational uses and business opportunities. It also allows you to overcome capital budget restraints.
Preserves Credit Lines - Keeps bank lines of credit open for emergencies and diversifies your credit.
100% Financing - No down payments are required and soft costs such as freight, installation, and tax are covered for both new and used equipment.
Hedges Obsolescence - Equipment can be returned or upgraded allowing you to keep up with technology advancements.

Use your cash or credit line for the aspects of business that can’t be leased, marketing, payroll, materials… Leasing is a tool that allows you to use someone else’s money to make you money.
