Is Heavy Truck Leasing Right For You?

When you decide it's time to add a new truck or trucks, to your fleet, you have many decisions to make. One of the biggest decisions you have to make is whether you should lease or buy your truck. Leasing has become a popular option the past couple of decades with very attractive offers. Many business owners are learning all the benefits of leasing, and how it can advance them as a company.

Leasing a truck allows small and beginning fleet operators and owner/operators to access the latest technologies without the upfront costs of buying the truck. Leasing doesn't require the credit that ownership does and it eliminates the need for a down payment and allows the owner to expense the cost of the truck as a monthly expense rather than as a liability, allowing more credit flexibility. 

Another advantage to leasing a heavy truck, is that leased vehicles don't depreciate. Work Truck Online, outlines the financial benefits of leasing, as well as the disadvantages here. When you buy a truck, it's constantly depreciating, but if you lease a truck, you can spend the money you've saved on non depreciating assets, or even on other ways to increase your revenue.

If you want to keep up with the latest technology in the trucking world, then leasing may be the best option for you. When you buy a truck, you're often stuck with it for the length of the note, but with leases you can trade for newer trucks more often. This is a great way to always have the newest and best technology in the industry, making your fleet more competitive and efficient. 

Leasing offers many more options to the customer, especially newer and smaller fleet owners. When deciding whether leasing is the right choice for you, try to think of your long term goals for your company and how long you plan on keeping the truck. Leasing may not be for everyone, but it definitely is an option that should not be overlooked by any fleet owner. Check out Michigan Truck Sales & Equipment's large inventory of used trucks here!
