Chief Automotive Technologies announced it has added new equipment leasing tools to its website, chiefautomotive.com, in order to make it easier for collision repair facilities to acquire advanced welders and the latest collision repair equipment to properly repair today’s vehicles.
“Leasing does not require a large initial cash outlay,” says Bob Holland, director of collision sales in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “It enables shop owners to obtain the tools necessary to repair new vehicles made with aluminum, advanced high-strength steels and modern construction methods, while also investing in facility updates or advertising. Lease payments are usually fixed, which makes it easier to budget for the long term than with a variable-rate line of credit. Plus, with a lease, the shop can use the equipment to do better quality work with brand new tools while still paying for those tools.”
Chief’s online leasing tools can be accessed at www.chiefautomotive.com/Leasing_Options. They include quote calculators and applications from Lease Corporation of America (LCA) and New Vision Equipment Leasing. These two companies have partnered with Chief to offer lease and financing packages specifically designed for collision repair equipment customers and distributors in the U.S. and Canada.
To start the leasing process, Chief encourages repairers to fill out the LCA or New Vision credit application at chiefautomotive.com/Leasing_Options. Once approved, a payment schedule can be structured to meet the customer’s specific needs. All Chief equipment, including its full line of MIG/MAG and spot welders, the LaserLock Live Mapping system, frame racks, structural holding components and shop tools, is eligible for financing.
