Avery Weigh-Tronix has introduced a range of affordable weighbridge leasing options to help companies improve cash flow and reduce corporation tax bills.
A weighbridge system is a major financial investment for any size of business and many operators are now considering equipment leasing over outright purchase as a practical way to spread the cost of repayment.
Payments range from £50 a week for an eight-metre weighbridge, including weight display and printer, to under £80 for a high-capacity, fifteen-metre deck.
For smaller or start-up businesses, a weighbridge is a long-term investment.
Although it will generate revenue for the business, spending a significant proportion of the capital expenditure budget in one lump sum is not usually a viable option. In a company where cash flow is critical, there are smaller, more immediate investments to be made too, in areas such as staffing, stock or training.
better returns and ensure the long-term growth of the company. Unlike outright purchase therefore, leasing helps companies to break down payments into consistent weekly or monthly amounts, leaving cash in the bank for more urgent requirements. These payments are also unaffected by rises in interest rates to allow accurate budget forecasting.
Even operators that need to weigh a small volume of vehicles each day can save a significant amount by choosing to lease a scale rather than visiting a public weighbridge.
Based on 30 weighings a day, an operator would expect to pay around £650 a week, excluding fuel costs and drivers¹ time. In just four months, the operator would spend the same as the cost of leasing a basic weighbridge and indicator system for the entire year. This makes it a financial attractive proposition, especially as the operator owns the weighbridge at the end of the lease term.
Avery Weigh-Tronix¹s offers a range of maintenance contract options, with professional service support from its nationwide team of engineers, to ensure accurate weighing performance and to protect against downtime.
Customers that take out a service contract in conjunction with the leasing agreement will benefit from a reduced rate and the assurance that their investment is protected fully.
Weighbridge leasing is available on all models in the Avery Weigh-Tronix range and engineers can tailor a system to suit site requirements, including printers, driver-operated consoles, barriers and traffic lights.
