Grow your business without the stress of compromising your bottom line

Right now, one of the first questions you should ask whenever you are considering investing in an asset for your business should be: “Do I really need to purchase this?”

Time and costs are a major factor in sourcing assets, and often, businesses will feel they only have two options: spend the money to buy it or go without.

Universe Direct is providing businesses with an alternative. IT rentals – a solution that may be far more beneficial to a company’s bottom line, which is saving the company money and affording it a great deal more benefits than if it had bought an asset.

“Currently, we are experiencing a massive spike in our IT rental business, with opportunities arising both in the corporate and retail space,” says Andrew Craig, Universe Direct Founder.

Reasons to rent

  • Flexibility to support your demand

In today’s challenging business environment, business can gain a competitive advantage with fast and flexible equipment rental solutions.

Partnering with the right supplier ensures you get the flexibility you need to complete the job with the most efficient equipment available. Whether you’re taking on a new type of project, have unplanned or emergency equipment needs that arise during production, an IT rental solution can prove to be invaluable.

  • Renting isn't more expensive

“You can get a great deal more for your money by renting than by simply buying an asset, including the potential to upgrade your tech, schedule service and maintenance if breakages occur and even the option to buy at a significantly reduced cost. The big upside to renting is the opportunity for business to match income to expenditure," says Craig.

  • Latest equipment and technology

Technology is evolving rapidly and, although this may be great for your business, it also comes at a cost. Unlike when you buy an asset, rentals provide you the opportunity to upgrade as part of your agreement.

  • 100% tax deductible and 0% depreciation

If you opt to buy your equipment, you will notice it will depreciate in value over time. However, if you rent for business purposes, you can preserve capital and, in most IT business rental situations, the rental payments can be deducted from taxable profits, reducing the net cost. Another plus is the immediate improvement you will see on your balance sheet.

Premium support

Universe Direct IT rentals provide a range of specialist services and expertise to assist in ensuring you get the absolute best out of your lease agreements. Universe Direct ensures  it stocks all the relevant parts and offers a comprehensive guarantee on all its equipment.

So, there you have it, just a few of the numerous reasons why choosing to rent the assets your business needs could be far more beneficial than buying the equipment.

Rent IT equipment from Universe Direct. We provide solutions to save capital and spread costs over time, with options to upgrade, extend, return or buy at the end of your lease agreement.
