A few things to consider before leasing a commercial truck fleet


A few things to consider before leasing a commercial truck fleet 

If you are in need of expanding your business with a truck fleet, then there are two main options for you to consider: Either you can take a loan to purchase the trucks, or you can lease. In both cases there are benefits, but let’s explore some of the things to consider with commercial truck leasing. While you are taking a commercial truck on a lease, this process will be similar to renting an apartment. At Pfaff Leasing, we make it easy for our clients to lease their commercial truck fleets. We have a vast network of connections that we tap into in order to match our clients with their desired work trucks and equipment. However, we do understand that maybe not everybody is familiar with the process of leasing a commercial truck fleet. It is for this reason that we have put together a blog that shares a few things to consider before leasing a commercial truck fleet.

There is great potential for business profits

Here’s how: Normally leasing is offered in low monthly installments when compared to installments paid for buying a truck with the loan. So with a lease, you’ll position yourself to save more in the long haul, because you’re paying less.

Low maintenance and less overall hassle 

Low maintenance is one of the most significant benefits of commercial truck leasing. As per the leasing contract, the whole maintenance and repairing work of the truck will be done by the lessor of the car. If you own a truck of your own then you need to pay more attention to the repair and maintenance of the truck, and you need to invest in it. Normally, your company’s savings can dwindle when you buy the truck and need to maintain it on your own. But in the case of leasing, you’re typically only paying the monthly amount to the leasing company, and whole maintenance work will be done by them.

You have many fleet choices 

Depending on the nature of the business you own, both new and old modeled trucks for commercial purposes can be taken on the lease. Modern trucks with upcoming technologies, such as telematics, will always be available with the leasing agencies. If you find that the truck you were using is an outdated one, you can change the old one with the new one. This alteration facility is easily available to the leasing agencies.

There is a lot of flexibility

With commercial truck leasing, typically the leasing contract is not as rigid as a traditional loan, so therefore you have more flexibility in your investment. As per the leasing contracts, you need to pay lower down payments, or in certain cases, you need not pay any payment initially. Preparing the leasing agreement for commercial vehicles is somewhat hassle-free when compared with the loan agreement. Here you need to do less paperwork, and licensing and reporting generally remain with the leasing agency.

These are just a few of the things you should consider before leasing a commercial truck fleet.
