If you decide to lease equipment, keep these points in mind:
- Deal only with reputable leasing companies. Visit their offices, and call other customers about service, reliability and responsiveness. Ask the Better Business Bureau and others about past complaints.
- Demand full disclosure of all taxes, service charges and fees.
- Have your attorney or accountant review any agreement before you sign. Request a copy of the contract and all documents at the time of signing-do not accept that a copy will be sent to you later.
