A semi-trailer comes in 48’ and 53’ lengths, and is often referred to as a storage van or tractor-trailer. Widely used across the world to transport goods, it can also be used for on site storage. Purchasing a certified semi-trailer can be an expensive investment, especially for short term use. It is important to look for certified companies and if you are planning to hire one for your business, choose Leaseway Corporation Ltd. We offer quality semi-trailer rental services in Calgary. We also provide other equipment on rent such as dry vans and refrigerated vans.
Why Renting a Semi-Trailer Is a Good Investment
Should you rent or buy a semi-trailer? It’s a question which is hard to answer. While ownership offers tax advantages and allows you to build up equity, renting is flexible and less expensive.
If your business is seasonal, renting a trailer is a logical decision. It can help you meet recurring business needs without affecting your cash flow.
Renting often reduces the need for an initial down payment though a security deposit may be a part of the rental agreement. It eliminates most of the steep maintenance costs.
Renting any equipment keeps you updated with the technological changes in the industry. It also enables you to adapt to ever-changing government regulations.
Buying a semi-trailer, on the other hand, becomes an asset which can depreciate. Similarly, taking loan on a new semi-trailer becomes a liability as a business expense. Even though ownership does offer tax advantages, you can classify a rented trailer as an expense on your books rather than an asset. It also gives you the option of quick equipment upgrades as required.
