Lorry Lease

Articulated Lorry

There are a few options when you are in the market for an articulated lorry. You can select to purchase the vehicle outright, or you may have to choose a lease or financing for your vehicle. Most people don't have the kind of money that it would take to purchase an articulated lorry outright, so you will most likely be leasing or financing. Each of these choices has benefits and disadvantages for you to weigh up. While there are some benefits to leasing the vehicle, you may want to purchase the vehicle eventually. Financing is the option to choose if you are sure that you will want to keep the vehicle for the long term.

You will go about the financing of an articulated lorry in much the same way that you purchase an automobile. The first place to look for your financing is through the bank you currently use. Of course, you are probably purchasing the articulated lorry for business reasons so the bank where you have your business accounts is the best place to seek financing. Many of the places where you buy the vehicles have financing available to you on site. You do not have to finance at the dealership, but it may be a good option. Check with your bank first and compare the finance plan that you would get with the dealership finance company against the arrangement your bank offers.

Before you attempt to finance anything, you should know your credit score. This will determine the rates that you will get for your articulated lorry financing. A good credit score will get you a good rate on your financing. When making a purchase this large it is important to understand what your credit rating is and if there are problems that can be corrected before you purchase an articulated lorry. The financing arrangement will be much more favourable if you take the time to clean up your credit before you visit the bank.

Have your insurance prepared before you purchase your articulated lorry. You will have to find out the type of insurance you are required to have from the bank and by law. When you are in business, insurance is an important expense that will protect your assets in the event of an accident with your articulated lorry. One accident with this heavy piece of equipment could wipe out your business.

Pay careful attention to the financing terms that you are agreeing to when you purchase your articulated lorry. It is an expense of doing business, but you must make sure that your budget will accommodate the expense. Vehicle maintenance and fuel costs should be factored into your company budget as well.

There are many factors in the purchase of an articulated lorry including the financing. Plan your approach carefully before you begin to take the steps for your purchase. Plan your budget, check your credit, get your insurance and prepare for the care and maintenance of the articulated lorry. It will be a great benefit to your business for long hauls.
