The 1987 best seller “The Art of The Deal" has some great advice for companies requiring fleet leasing services. Included in the book’s 11-step program are tips like “maximize your options," “know your market," “use your leverage" and “contain the costs." These are all helpful when considering commercial fleet leasing companies, especially when it comes to containing your acquisition costs.

A professional fleet leasing company can use the leverage of its significant buying power to get you the best deal. When there is less capital outlay required to acquire your commercial fleet, you can maximize your investment by channeling dollars elsewhere. A professional fleet leasing company also knows the market, and can work directly with a manufacturer to factory-order your vehicles, ensuring you get only the options you require.

At the end of the day, understanding the art of using a professional fleet leasing company is a good way to trump the high cost of acquisition.
