Is It Better To Lease Or Rent A Toyota Forklift?
If you’re not sure how long you’ll need a piece of equipment, renting may seem like the obvious choice. But sometimes, a flexible forklift lease agreement is more cost-effective.

In case you’re not familiar with a flex lease, it’s two (sometimes three) lease agreements in one. When the first lease term ends, you have the option to return the forklift, or continue on to the second term.

Toyota Forklift Rentals

If you’re unsure about the duration of your job or want to try a piece of equipment before committing to it long-term, renting may be the best option. With a forklift rental, you can return the unit at any time and won’t pay for the equipment during the off-season. Also, rental costs are considered an operational expense rather than a capital expense.

We rent forklifts by the day, week, or month in the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, Yolo County, Salinas, Santa Cruz, and Fresno. Delivery, maintenance, and repairs are always included.

Toyota Flex Lease

A forklift flex lease can include two, and sometimes three separate operating lease contracts in one. After the first term ends, you can return the equipment early, or you can continue to lease the equipment – usually at a lower rate.

When to choose a flex lease instead of renting a forklift:
A flex lease is a great option for customers who expect a steady flow of business. We can also match the lease periods based upon your customer contracts and commitments.
