Test Equipment Rental & Leasing

Rent or Lease Test Equipment

When you require test equipment for short- or long-term projects, test equipment rental and leasing enables you to meet your requirements using operating expenditures. This saves your capital budget for any test instruments you want to own outright. Other reasons to consider renting or leasing include emergencies, protection from obsolescence, or ‘try before you buy’. Some companies use leasing or rental with equity as a way to finance the purchase of test instruments.
