Benefits of Commercial Truck Leasing
Leasing a fleet of trucks for your business is a more cost-effective solution than purchasing them. Not only are newly leased trucks going to be more reliable, but leasing new trucks saves you money in other ways that some may not realize:
- Lower monthly payments: Leasing allows for lower monthly payments because you’re only paying for the portion of the truck that your company actually uses.
- Lower maintenance expenses: Our fleet maintenance and repair program provides access to nearly 80,000 certified repair centers across the country, with pre-negotiated prices to keep costs to a minimum.
- Easily upgrade to newer models: Seamlessly upgrade to new models and eliminate the hassle of buying and selling.
- Save on fuel: Utilize our fuel card program and receive one invoice for all your fuel expenses. Eliminate any inappropriate fuel purchases with our spending control program.
- Flexible leasing options: We offer open-end and closed-end leasing options, depending on your specific needs.

Flexible Truck Leasing Options
Deciding between a close-end lease and an open-end lease can be a tough decision. Open-end leases are typically recommended for businesses that will be using the trucks more extensively and closed-end leases are more suited for drivers who drive similar distances each month and want predictable payments. We are here to help you decide on the best option for your business.
- Open-End: An ongoing lease with no mileage limits that allows for more flexibility than closed-end leases.
- Closed-End: A lease with fixed terms and mileage limits. With a closed-end lease, there is a defined end-point to the lease.
Vehicle cycling saves you money
A vehicle’s total cost of ownership can be a complex issue comparing the costs of keeping the truck you have now against leasing a new truck. A common issue that we solve for a lot of our clients is they’re tired of buying new trucks, running them into the ground, and then selling them for far less than they purchased them for. We monitor the vehicle’s life cycle and inform you of when the best time to replace your truck. This comes down to a number of factors including:
- Increased maintenance expenses
- Diminishing resale value
- Downtime for repairs

Custom Work Truck Fleet Options
One reason many businesses purchase trucks rather than lease them is because they want the freedom to customize their vehicles to fit their needs. When you lease with Ewald Fleet Solutions we give you the option to both add vehicle wraps to promote your business as well as upfitting your trucks with the equipment they need.
Building a Brand with Your Vehicle Fleet
Adding custom graphics and vehicle wraps to your trucks is a great way to promote your business just by driving. Adding a vehicle wrap provides a rare one-time marketing investment with unlimited payoff potential that continuously promotes your business every time your employees drive. We will connect you with a reputable vehicle wrapper in your area to get your vehicles in quality wraps at a great price.
Upfitting Your Fleet of Trucks
While vehicle wraps look cool and promote your business, you’ll need to upfit your fleet of vehicles with the necessary equipment to hold your tools and equipment. We get your trucks fitted with the necessary equipment before they are delivered to you to save you the hassle of dealing with multiple vendors. Popular options that people add to their trucks are:
- Ladder Racks
- Tool Boxes
