Re: [Histonet] Leasing histology equipment

From:Victoria Baker


There are leasing companies available if you want to
purchase equipment from a particular manufacturer.  At
one of the institutions I worked at we had a leasing
company that we worked with for much of our capital
purchases.  The leasing company purchases the
equipment and "owns" it, your company then pays the
leasing company X amount of payments until the
conditions have been met for you to "own" it.  You may
need to check with your financial people if they have
done this or if they already have one.  Another avenue
is to see if the the company you want to buy the
equipment from has a plan that will allow you to lease
the equipment.  I might be off base, but with all the
competition for "big" purchases of equipment many
sales reps will go the extra yard to get the sale. 
I'm not a big fan of leasing as to me the only one who
makes money in the end is the leasing company, but
that just my opinion.  

One other thing that I ran into when it came into
leasing of equipment is that many times it meant
getting refurbished vs. new equipment.  

I wish you luck in your search.
