Break Your Leases and Start Renting Without Commitments

Posted by Bob Loblaw on Tue, Mar 19, 2019

Ditch your leases and rent instead! Why? Because no commitments, no hassles, no stress! As a new business owner, or even a well-established one, it makes perfect sense to consider rentals. Leasing equipment generally makes it yours to own eventually, but you end up with a depreciated asset; and in a technological business world, it's imperative to keep your equipment updated.

Buying a brand new copier, multi-function printer, or other piece of office equipment can be a huge expense. Plus, maintenance on those same pieces of equipment can add up to costly repairs in a short period of time. If you’re not ready to take that risk, or you want the peace of mind that comes with not having to worry about untimely repairs or maintenance, renting is the best course of action for you.
