Leasing Facts You Need to Know
As you may know, equipment leasing is used by more than 80% of all businesses. In addition, this industry is largely unregulated. To protect you, Regency gives you security by working with a finance company that not only has a track record of integrity and excellence, but will put its promises to you in writing.
It seems that this important aspect of the office technology sales process is grossly overlooked. Too often leases are written by competitors that weren’t in the best interest of the consumer. Some of you out there have already experienced this and have a bad taste when it comes to leasing.
The most common problem is automatic lease renewals, which are costly and frustrating. This is where the lease that was supposed to end on a designated date renews for a predetermined period, usually annually. It generally happens if the consumer has not notified the leasing company of their intentions prior to the end of the lease, usually within 3-6 months. With our leasing program, you are notified on the last invoice that your lease is coming to an end, and will default to a month-to-month contract if you do not cancel.
There are also other problems with leasing terms and conditions, such as the requirement to ship a product across the country at the end of the lease, or hidden fees throughout the lease. Many lease companies offer low (teaser) rates to attract business and then benefit from extra fees or hidden payments. In fact, the consumer actually pays more at the end of the lease than if they were partnered to a company that provided them with a lease that was written to their advantage. Dealers are frequently offering incentives from leasing companies to promote these types of programs to the consumer.
