What To Look For In a Vendor Leasing Partner


Partnering with a Calgary vendor leasing company allows you to better serve your customers while moving more product. A leasing partner will provide your customers with manageable payment programs that give them an option to lease beneficial products that can boost their sales. This gives them the opportunity to grow their business by using more of your products, leading to greater growth for both you and your customer over a longer period of time. Partnering with an experienced and trusted leasing partner allows you and your customers more options to manage cash flow while increasing profits. Here’s how to identify which vendor leasing partner will be the most reliable and get great results for both you and your customers.


Your Vendor Leasing Partner Should Have:

Integrity. You want a leasing partner who can openly discuss their decisions with you and who keeps honest and clear records. Find a company that stands by their initial terms and honours the rates they quote. Avoid companies that only focus on their profits and don’t treat you like a competent business partner. This can be easy to avoid by checking online reviews; companies that are well trusted and treat their clients and partners with respect will have plenty of positive reviews about clients whose businesses have grown.  If a company has overall negative reviews, they are likely not an ideal partner for you and your business.

Good Communication. Your vendor leasing partner should be able to have open and clear communication with you. They should be fairly accessible to you and you should be able to reach them via phone or email. If a customer is declined to lease your product, your vendor partner should be able to explain why and offer solutions to move forward. If a customer is offered higher rates than expected, your vendor leasing partner should be able to clearly explain why to you and to the customer. Remember that your vendor leasing partner is just that: a partner. As such, they should always treat you with respect and an understanding of your business goals and values.

Expertise. Your vendor leasing partner needs to showcase their knowledge and add their experience to your partnership. Having that extra knowledge is incredibly valuable, and if they don’t have a greater understanding and ability to increase your company value in the market, then look for a different partner. A good vendor leasing partner can educate you and your customers and doesn’t flounder for answers.

Easy Application. When an application process is simple, customers are more likely to engage with the vendor. Most people do their business via online forms now, but some still prefer phone calls, fax, or email. Ideally, a company should offer all of these options and have a simple to navigate system with easy to read and simple to fill out application forms for customers.
