Benefits of auto shop equipment leasing

Whether you are in the market for a new car lift, tire changer and balancer, air compressor, jack, or any of the other types of shop equipment, opting to lease your gear is a truly savvy choice for a variety of different reasons. There are so many benefits to equipment leasing, including specific tax and accounting advantages that you will want to ask your accountant about. Although this is far from a comprehensive list of benefits, a few of the most important features to consider are listed below. 


Typically, purchasing pre-owned equipment means you have very few options to choose from in order for it to fit your budget. When you lease your automotive equipment through a leasing company, you will have access to a tremendous selection of products that meet the needs of you and your staff perfectly. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally get the gear you really want, rather than what is available in your price range?


Sometimes, equipment outlives its usefulness for more modern vehicles. If your leased equipment starts getting too old or worn out to be useful, you aren’t financially tethered to it forever—simply give it back to the leasing company at the end of the contract term without any further obligation or money owed. 


Leasing companies understand that as time passes, you may want to continue to upgrade your tools to meet the needs of your shop. Rather than having to sell off your old gear, playing the waiting game until you can afford to purchase new equipment, you can simply upgrade when your lease contract is up for renewal. This translates into both short-term and long-term enhanced profits.
