Tips to Save Money on Your Next Lease Leasing business equipment is great for small businesses with limited resources. Here are some tips on how you can save more on your next lease. Choose the Right Leasing Firm. A leasing company that has been in the industry for a considerable period is a good partner. Check out the firm’s reputation in the market. You can’t go wrong by asking customers of the leasing company about its service. What type of lease should you choose? Choosing a lease term that complements your business structure is essential. Pay attention to the pricing, terms of payment, obsolescence, and other conditions of the lease. Make sure that it matches the needs of your business. Inquire other fees. Be alert about possible fees such as non-use fees, penalty charges, or lease termination charges. See to it that you are aware about these costs before signing up with the lease. Use the equipment with care. You can save from penalty charges by keeping the equipment in good condition until the end of your lease term. What is your fair market value? If you want to keep the equipment, research about the fair market value. It’s best to inquire about this detail before signing the lease so you can make plans ahead. Pay Attention to the End-of-lease Notice and Renewal Period. These important details gives you the chance to decide whether or not you want to renew your contract or just return the equipment on time. Cut on your Interim Rent. The interim rent is a daily payment for the equipment starting from the day it was received up to the day the actual lease begins. Most companies begin their lease term on the first day of the month. You can save your interim rent by having the equipment delivered right at the end of the month, avoiding the long waiting period for the start date of the lease.
