Why Lease Or Finance A Tow Truck?

Even if you already own a tow truck, you will need to purchase another one eventually if a truck breaks down or you need more hauling power in your fleet. When that time arrives, equipment financing will help spread out the cost into manageable monthly payments.

Growing your business is harder without enough cash on hand. After all, the #1 reason why businesses fail is lack of cash, so your decision on how to get your tow truck shouldn’t be taken lightly. Unlike cash purchases, equipment leasing allows you to acquire a tow truck while still conserving cash.

You might need your savings for:

  • Emergencies
  • Payroll
  • Saying yes to more opportunities
