Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2016 -- Megan Hewitt-Ruzicka, Bastian Robotics Purchasing Specialist, discussed how interest rates, depreciation, down payments, and more can all be factors in whether to purchase or lease industrial equipment.
When it comes to procuring industrial equipment, manufacturers need to look at the best options for their company. Many businesses often seek to save as much money as possible when it comes to acquiring this type of equipment. Some businesses have available capital to invest in purchasing new equipment, while others prefer leasing. There are benefits to both buying and leasing industrial equipment, but the ultimate decision should be based on what is best for the particular business.
Many factors play a role in determining the best acquisition method. Good starting points to look at include:
- Interest rate and depreciation for buying
- Residual percent for leasing
- Down payments for both options
Ultimately, the decision whether to buy or lease industrial equipment is dependent upon the business' financial status and investment strategy. Generally, smaller start-up businesses would likely see that it makes sense to lease. Conversely, larger companies have the financial support to buy outright.
