Open-Ended Leasing: Flexibility and Control
Your business is one of a kind, so why shouldn’t your lease be? CommerciaLease is an open-ended Terminal Rental Adjustment Clause (TRAC) lease program that can be precisely tailored to meet your business requirements. Flexible terms and no mileage restrictions or penalties.
- Open-end leases are pervasive in fleet leasing because they offer fleet managers greater control of asset utilization and disposal.
- In an open-end lease, the lessee agrees to a minimum term that’s usually at least 12 months and can terminate the agreement at any point after the end of the term.
- The lessor has multiple options at lease-end: sell yourself, purchase out-right.
- Open-end leases also appeal to fleet managers with remarketing expertise who monitor the used-vehicle market and can sell vehicles during peaks in the value cycle.
Closed-Ended Leasing: Predictable Outcomes
Closed-end leases appeal to fleets seeking a fixed monthly payment.
With a closed-end lease, the term is typically set, and monthly payments are based on the estimated residual value of the vehicle at the end of the lease. Terms can range from 6 months to 48 months.
The lessee can walk away from the deal at the end of the term with no additional costs if the vehicle didn’t exceed the maximum mileage or wear-and-tear parameters. The lessor sells the vehicle and assumes responsibility for any profits or losses caused by fluctuations in market value.
Closed-end leases have the benefit of a predictable monthly payment with no residual risk to the lessee at term end.
