Top Five Reasons to Lease Instead of Purchase

  1. Lease payments can be a tax write-off. Currently, for your business, you can write off most, if not all, of your lease payments as a business expense, as opposed to only claiming the amortization on your owned asset.
  2. Leases do not require a down payment. When you lease, the only money required at time of signing is often first and last months’ payment. This leaves tens of thousands of dollars in your bank account, liquid, to put towards other important facets of your business. It also makes it easier to get an approval, if you do not have the money for a down payment.
  3. Service costs can be rolled into your lease. Unless your business is equipped to do every kind of service on your trucks and trailers, you’ll inevitably have to bring it in to a dealer at some point. Rather than incurring expensive service bills throughout the vehicle’s life, you can pay for service as you make your monthly payments, so you have one predictable cost to worry about.
  4. As your needs change, so can your leases. When you purchase a truck, you are signing on to an ownership commitment. Depending on your usage and replacement time frame, you’ll likely have to trade in that truck eventually. Instead of going through the hassle of selling privately, or using the value of the truck as a trade-in, a lease allows you to drop off the keys commitment- free and sign up for a new truck.
  5. Leases let you get more truck for your buck. During a lease, your payments are smaller than an equivalent-length financing contract would be. Because of this, you can afford to get a truck with more features and upgrades. And, since at the end of the lease you return the truck, you will be able to upgrade more frequently.

Types of Leases

Full Service Lease

The most popular type of lease is a Full Service Lease – it pulls all six components of truck operations together:

  • Purchase price
  • Financing
  • Used truck disposal
  • Maintenance services
  • Peripheral services (rentals, fuel program, etc.)
  • Administration (truck licensing, regulatory compliance, etc.)

A Maxim Full Service Lease includes:

  • Tires
  • Priority Service
  • No vehicle disposal concerns
  • Dedicated Maintenance
  • Mobile Service (at designated locations)
  • Provincial and federal inspections
  • Vehicle licensing and legalization
  • Replacement substitute vehicles
  • Discounted rentals if needed
  • Safety and compliance training and consultation
  • Telematics solutions including GPS tracking and reporting as well as Driver Electronic Log capability
  • Fuel tax reporting
  • Fuel purchasing program
  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • Skilled Maxim service technicians

Full Service Equity Lease

If you need to own your own trucks for tax reasons or truck application, our Full Service Equity Lease is a great option. You retain vehicle ownership. Plus you get fixed and guaranteed monthly maintenance costs on all predictable maintenance parts and labor, comprehensive preventive maintenance support, and priority service.

Ownership Transition

Unlock the equity tied up in your truck fleet and put cash back in your business. If you own your own vehicles and want to improve your balance sheet and vehicle uptime, consider an Ownership Transition program. It can help you release the cash that is sitting in your truck fleet and improve your service to your customers.

Short & Long Term Rental

Late-model sleepers, day cabs, straight trucks, box trucks, refrigerated vehicles and more—available for rent by the day, week or months at a time.

Dedicated Maintenance

Customized dedicated truck maintenance, priority service and a fixed monthly cost for scheduled preventive and unscheduled maintenance. The comprehensive and proactive Maxim Dedicated Maintenance program maximizes component life cycles, controls operating costs, and provides the highest level of reliability and vehicle uptime.

Lease Vs. Own

Do you really want to be in the transportation business?

Commercial truck ownership is getting more challenging and costly to manage every day. A typical private fleet in ownership has 20% to 30% more vehicles than needed. For most well-run businesses, truck leasing is a superior financial and operational alternative because your cash flow improves, your truck uptime improves, and your transportation costs are more consistent.

Ownership fleets have 20% to 30% more vehicles than needed.
