Operational lease

With our Operating Lease product, we can help specify trailers to meet your requirements, purchase them on your behalf if needed and lease them to you at an agreeable fixed monthly rate over the term that you need. If we are purchasing the trailers from new, the specification, including your own livery, can be exactly to your requirements.

At the end of the term, you can choose to extend the lease, purchase the assets or return them. You have full use of the trailers during the lease period and TIP will take the risks associated with ownership of valuable assets. All whilst avoiding the need for capital investment.

Finance lease

With our Finance Lease product, you can acquire trailers over time without having to pay for them upfront.

Sale and leaseback

With our Sale & Leaseback product, we can even purchase trailers that you already own and lease them back to you at a fixed monthly rate in order to free-up your capital investment. We will offer you a purchase price at a fair market value and lease to you at a competitive fixed monthly rate.
