Just as many businesses now lease company cars and other office equipment, it is possible to lease fire and security alarm systems which is something that many people might not realise.
Leasing fire and security equipment is growing in popularity because many businesses find paying monthly for a system is more preferable than outlaying a large lump sum or having to plan ahead as technology advances and their system becomes obsolete and requires upgrading.
It also means it is easy to install more equipment as the business expands. In fact, approximately 50% of all new CCTV systems are funded through a lease agreement.
The cost of the service and maintenance of the system during the contract period can also be collected within the lease agreement if required. At the end of the lease period you have the option to extend the hire of the same equipment or upgrade systems under a new agreement.
Leasing fire and security systems is particularly beneficial to cashflow for all businesses, especially companies moving to new premises that need to install an alarm for the first time. It also means that it can be easier to obtain budgetary approval as a smaller monthly sum can be easier to budget for than a large one off payment.
Whilst a fire risk assessment will determine the category of fire alarm system that should be installed, leasing the equipment may also mean that rather than installing a system you can afford, it is possible to install a higher specification system to protect your people, processes and property.
If you relocate your business during the lease agreement period, as long as it is practical to re-install the system at your new premises, (e.g. wireless systems) it is also really easy to transfer the lease to the new address. This is particularly attractive to businesses who occupy premises on short term leases as it means they can have the fire and security equipment they are paying for monthly re-installed at their new location.
