Owning vs Leasing
Leasing Made Simple
Leasing a fleet of vehicles is typically seen as less risky than owning, but with added considerations like fleet lifespan, annual mileage, interest rates on loans, maintenance charges, depreciation and fleet disposal, the choice to either lease or buy becomes more complex.

Looking for a low-cost, long term transportation solution? A closed-end lease is a great way to get into a new car without having to worry about depreciation. You have a set lease term and mileage limits, and you’re responsible for the vehicle’s condition.
- Provides you protection against market risk
- Guaranteed prices and terms
- No commitment to sell or trade-in once the lease comes to a close
- The leasing company is responsible for any additional depreciation to the vehicle below the residual value at the end of the lease.
You can’t go wrong with this option for your fleet!
It’s a flexible and efficient way to get the most out of your fleet vehicles. The following reasons make this type of contract ideal:
- You can terminate anytime after your minimum term with no penalty.
- You can sell your fleet on the market if it’s more lucrative than keeping them.
- If your business’s needs are always in flux or you need a quick turnaround, open-end leases allow for easy and painless termination.
- If your fleet will be under heavy wear and tear due to industrial usage, an open-end lease will protect you from any future depreciation beyond the agreed value.
The only thing to consider is that if your market value is less, you pay the difference.
Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you’re maxed out on credit. You can’t get a vehicle from your local dealership. Do you need your existing lines of credit for something other than vehicles? You could simply be tired of managing the fleet due to a string of expensive repairs because you do not have a fleet manager, or an in-house, on-site maintenance shop available.
You would only buy your fleet outright if your company has such a large amount of capital available that couldn’t be best used in other areas of your company and you have no fear of market depreciation.
A Closed-end Lease allows you and your company to budget all costs of your fleet into one monthly number. This allows you to use your capital more effectively in other areas of your business. Also provides the least amount of worry of maintenance costs.
You would choose this option primarily if you and your business have a good deal of experience in reselling and remarketing. If you don’t have an understanding of the future market(s) you can end up paying more.
