I've always paid cash. Why should I lease?
There are many advantages to leasing. Many of them involve the preservation of working capital. Leasing pays for 100% of the equipment you need, keeping your working capital free for other investment projects. A good rule of thumb is: buy things which appreciate in value. Lease things that depreciate. Leasing keeps bank lines of credit available too.
What can be leased?
Almost any durable piece of equipment, which costs $20,000 or more, used in a trade or business can be leased.
Who maintains the equipment?
The lessee is responsible for maintaining the equipment in good operating condition. We do not build any cost into the lease for maintenance.
Who pays the insurance?
The lessee is responsible for providing insurance coverage for the leased equipment. Mid America Banklease Corp. should be listed as the additional insured and co-loss payee on your policy.
Is Mid America owned by an equipment manufacturer?
No. Mid America Banklease Corp. is part of an eight-bank holding company in Wisconsin with no ownership ties to equipment manufacturers or dealers. In regard to the various brands and dealerships, we remain impartial. Once we write a lease contract with a customer, it is that customer whom we serve.
