GSE Contract Hire

Equipment When You Need It

Contract Hire is a popular method of acquiring the use of assets without the need for substantial capital outlay. For a single monthly payment which covers financing, maintenance and repair, you can outsource the management of your fleet to the experts at Rushlift GSE. Contracts vary in length but are typically three to five years. Monthly payments are allowable as an operating expense making contract hire a tax efficient method of operation, as well as improving your cash flow.
