Truck Lease Costs

Commercial truck lease costs seem to fluctuate with every passing day. No doubt this has to do with the up-and-down nature of the economy, or at least the perceptions thereof. When it comes to commercial leasing, the costs are almost always worth paying, as itís much easier nowadays to lease a commercial truck than to buy and finance.

Though truck lease costs can vary markedly, starting costs tend to hover around L350 or so. This will get you a small tractor without refrigeration capabilities. Of course, prices rise from there depending on the length of the trailer, the age of the vehicle and many other factors, not the least of which is the various amenities of a modern tractor. If youíre looking to lease another type of truck such as a dump truck, costs are generally somewhat lower. In this unpredictable environment, truck lease costs can change quickly, so it pays to keep on top of current trends and make your move accordingly.

There are hundreds of companies throughout the UK, which specialize in commercial truck leasing and contract higher. Itís a good idea to familiarize yourself with the offerings of those in your area or even those further afield if you can make the arrangements without much trouble. Though the larger companies tend to concentrate on corporations with fleets of dozens or hundreds of vehicles, there are many smaller companies that will lease to small and medium enterprises. Truck lease costs from these companies can be hard to pin down, so you may wish to have a broker investigate the options available to you.

If you decide to use a broker to find the lowest of the truck lease costs, you will need to pay a brokerage fee, which is spread over the life of the contract, or, if you have the means, you can pay it in one lump sum. The amount is usually around L800 total or about L15 per month. However, even with these added costs, youíre likely to save more over the course of the lease than you would if you decided to go it alone.

Truck lease costs for all kinds of trucks can be found on the websites of some of the most popular leasing companies. They can at least give you a rough estimate of what youíll probably pay, but youíll need to add the various options required separately and factor that into the overall cost. For a more precise cost, many of these companies will give you a free quote with no obligation on your part. Itís as simple as filling in your contact details and some basic information about your circumstances. You should receive a prompt response to your enquiry, especially considering how quiet the market is today. Because it takes considerable time to constantly ask for quotes and submit counter offers, it might be simpler to employ the services of a brokerage company. It all depends how much your time is worth at the moment.

Truck lease costs are likely to rise as the economy improves, so if youíre currently planning to contract hire a truck, van or any type of commercial vehicle, it would be advisable to do so sooner rather than later.
