Financing and leasing solutions provide you with a variety of benefits, such as:

·         Contract length flexibility (12 to 60 months)

·         No down payments required**

Operating Lease 

Lowest periodic payments, and end-of-term options

With an operating lease you  pay rent for the use of the equipment, with flexible options at the end of the lease, such as extending your contract, returning the platform or upgrading to a newer model. VAT is payable on each rental rather than a single lump sum up front.

Contract Hire

Bundled, usage-based solution and end-of-term options

With a contract hire your company has all the benefits of an operating lease together with a maintenance contract built into the agreement, so inspection and upkeep of the access platform is covered. There are also flexible end of term options: extend your contract, return the equipment, or upgrade to a newer model. Regular LOLER inspections and maintenance of equipment is included in the agreement. VAT is payable on each rental rather than a single lump sum up front.

Finance Lease

Continue leasing for a nominal fee with options

With a financial lease, your company has fixed payments over the term of the contract and the flexibility to extend the contract or simply return the equipment at the end. VAT is payable on each rental rather than a single lump sum up front.

Hire Purchase

Intention to own equipment at the end of the term

With a hire purchase option, your company can purchase the equipment for a fixed amount which is specified at the beginning of the contract,
