The Benefits of Fleet Leasing

While this is certainly true, the benefits of leasing your fleet vehicles go far beyond just lowering the monthly cost of the vehicle including tax savings*, reduced maintenance costs and less waste. Leasing also aligns well with economic life cycling, resulting in the ability to operate a more current fleet of vehicles.
