When you need a vehicle for your business, you have options. You could buy a vehicle outright, finance, or lease. Each of these options has advantages and disadvantages. Which is the right option for you?
As a small business owner, balancing cash flow with critical capital investments to operate effectively can be challenging. When cash is tight, but you need a vehicle (or a fleet) to serve your customers, consider vehicle leasing.

The Benefits Of Vehicle Leasing For Small Businesses
Manage Your Cash Flow
Purchasing a vehicle outright means a large cash investment. Vehicle leasing gives you access to the vehicle or vehicles you need to operate with a manageable monthly payment. Many commercial leasing providers will work with you to customize a payment structure that works for you. This makes budgeting easier and lets you maintain your cash for other operating costs. And when compared to traditional loan agreements, vehicle leasing payments are often lower.

Get The Vehicles You Want
When purchasing a vehicle or a fleet of vehicles, the large cash expenditure will often dictate the type of vehicle you can afford. Vehicle leasing and the associated manageable monthly payments let you access the vehicle features and technologies you NEED to provide the highest level of service to your customers. And with a commercial vehicle lease agreement, you can upgrade your vehicle at the end of your term to take advantage of emerging features and technologies.
Lower Maintenance Costs
When you coordinate your lease term with the manufacturer’s warranty much of the servicing, maintenance, and repairs will be covered. This means fewer associated costs than a vehicle you have purchased outright.
Flexible End-Of-Lease Options
When you purchase a vehicle, you assume the risk of depreciation. This means that when you are finished with the vehicle, or the vehicle is no longer serving its intended purpose for your business, the difference between the purchase price and the current value is a loss you assume. With vehicle leasing, there are end-of-lease options like extension, buyout, upgrading, and return so you can make the best decision for your company.
