The day to day haulage needs of a company can vary drastically, and if you lease, you can tailor your van to the needs of your business. Leasing provides a more affordable option to new businesses, and to companies that are making changes to the way they operate. If a business wants to test the water with a larger van, then a lease will allow them to do so without the large monetary outlay.
Leasing will allow you to keep your vehicle up to date and well maintained. If you buy, the vehicle will continue to depreciate for as long as you own it. Leasing lets you update to a new vehicle when it suits you, at a lower initial cost.
Buying a van is a big financial commitment, you need to be sure of your exact needs and you need a good idea of what your future needs will be. The low initial cost of leasing a van frees up the money to develop your enterprise in other ways, it also allows you to flex to different vehicles to comply with the needs of your business. You may even have the option to pay a little extra and buy the vehicle at the end of the lease term.
Maintenance can be a big cost, especially as your vehicle ages and depreciates. Many leasing deals will include maintenance and repairs as part of the hire contract. A van that you own outright will invariably grow more expensive the longer you own it. This means that leasing will make it easier to budget for your van on a monthly basis.
A restriction on mileage may apply when you hire. This may be a pivotal element in your decision whether or not to lease. You should however be able to shop around for different deals and restrictions. Depending on your own needs, this may not even be a problem.
