Many of our customers choose to lease our welding systems. To accommodate those customers, AMI offers leasing or lease-purchase options on a large range of well maintained, quality orbital welding equipment. AMI also offers rental of equipment, either for short-term jobs or for evaluation purposes before a purchasing decision is made.
Equipment Leasing Solutions
Arc Machines, Inc. offers customized equipment leasing solutions designed for short-term projects and to conserve operating capital. Leasing equipment has the following specific advantages over other types of financing, cash payments or other purchasing methods:
Conserve cash flow. With leasing, you need only a minimal initial investment to acquire the equipment you need. The payments can be conveniently spread over several months allowing you to preserve working capital for the operation and growth of your business.
Lease-to-own option. 70% of lease payments are applicable towards system purchases.
Increased flexibility. Your equipment needs can grow and change along with your business. With equipment leasing, you have the option to take on short-term jobs that require specialized equipment you might not be able to use in the future.
Tax deductions. In most cases, the full amount of each lease payment is deductible for tax purposes. (Consult your tax advisor to make sure the type of equipment lease you are entering into allows for a tax benefit).
Customized financing. With equipment leasing, you can choose from two attractive leasing options (three-month and one-month).
Flexibility and Convenience. At the end of the job or at the end of the lease contract you can simply return the equipment to AMI, eliminating the burden of selling used equipment if you no longer need it. *
