OPERATING LEASE.

The flexible way to lease.

A Freightliner Finance Operating Lease enables you to manage your vehicle without having to purchase outright. We can tailor solutions to suit your financial needs including finance contract terms with the flexibility of choosing your annual kilometres.

An Operating Lease is suitable for individuals and businesses who regularly upgrade their vehicle. You gain the benefit of off balance sheet, competitive monthly rentals that may be fully tax deductible.*Furthermore, Freightliner Finance removes the liability associated with your vehicle’s value at the end of the finance term, because you hand the vehicle back with no further financial obligation apart from any excess kilometre charges, or any damage outside of fair wear and tear^.
