When it comes to your business, choosing the right vehicle means that it has not only to be functional and versatile, but also stylish and professional. Whether you have a delivery based company, you’re a contractor or if your vehicle is also your inventory storage, then choosing a van to best suit your business is vital. Upgrade the look of your business with a smart and stylish new van, but the question is, will you buy or will you lease?
Once you’ve made the wise decision to upgrade the look and functionality of your business with a new model van, the next thing to consider is whether you want to buy or lease.
Buying a new vehicle is not exactly the wrong option, but it has its fair share of cons. Chances are if you’re choosing to buy a new van you are probably financing through the bank or using an alternative credit provider. Although using these avenues to purchase your company vehicle are certainly practical, these funds could be put to better use considering the myriad of options available for vehicle purchasing.
Leasing a vehicle, on the other hand, comes not only with a brand new road-ready vehicle, but a variety of other benefits too, since leasing is generally cheaper than financing. Another benefit of leasing your company vehicle is that you are essentially renting the vehicle, so at the end of the lease you can turn in your keys and walk away or even upgrade, the choice is entirely up to you.
Another positive aspect to leasing is that upkeep and repair costs are virtually nonexistent as this is mainly covered by the provider. Kudos Vehicle Management (UK’s leading van leasing company) for example offers a variety of reasonable lease options, as well as having the finest selection of vans in the UK. Here are some of the latest and most popular vans available for lease:
