Hire/Rental Agreement
The lessee has use of the goods for a fixed term. At the end of the agreement the goods are handed back or title is purchased for a nominal fee, which is set on the onset of the agreement.

Operating Lease
This is basically a rental contract for periods of 3 to 5 years and the rentals are calculated on the difference between the cost of the asset and what the finance company considers it will be worth at the end of the term. At the end of the contract you either return the asset, to the finance company and provided that its condition is in accordance with the contract, no further payments will be due. Alternatively the lessee maybe able to extend the rentals for a further period or sell the equipment.

End of Lease
For a nominal fee we can arrange this for you, and we will make it clear on the outset of the agreement what the cost of acquiring the asset will be, so there are no nasty surprises
