As your business grows and the demand for more trucks arrives, the decision to purchase or lease becomes an important one. Long-term rentals can be an option. The benefit of a lease is having increased flexibility and less commitment. Leasing commercial trucks requires less upfront cash and monthly lease payments are usually less than finance payments. When the lease period has expired, you can simply turn in the vehicle. Business owners may be able to claim tax deductions that are available for the use of leased vehicles as well. If you are not confident that your company will be operating a commercial vehicle for a minimum of three years, leasing may be the best option for you. With a full-service leasing program from NationaLease San Diego you can focus on other aspects of running your business.

Rapid changes in technology today means vehicles become obsolete more quickly. With leasing, trade cycles are shorter, which allows you to upgrade to new technology sooner than if you owned your vehicles. This may appeal to fleets that prefer to spec a premium product to attract and retain drivers, or for your fleet operator that wants new safety-related technology.
