Rental-Purchase Options:

Keeping Your Options Open

A Rental-Purchase Option (RPO) with the ALL Family of Companies is a rental agreement with the option to recover a portion of your rental dollars to use toward the purchase of your equipment when the rental term is completed. You may be able to recoup a good portion of your lease investment when you exercise your option to buy.

How does an RPO work?

An RPO must be signed at the time of the original equipment rental. It does not obligate you to buy the equipment; it simply gives you the advantage of having that option at any time during the rental agreement. However, you must enter into the RPO along with your initial rental agreement. You cannot choose to sign an RPO once your rental term commences.

If you decide not to purchase the equipment, you may still continue to rent it or another comparable machine.

What are the advantages of signing an RPO?

The biggest benefit: The dollars you’ve put into your rental can be credited toward your purchase. You will have already paid a large portion of the purchase price, possibly lowering your subsequent payments. The RPO specialist will assist you with the terms of your specific Rental-Purchase Option.

When you want to buy used equipment, remember that not every seller knows the history of the machine or has maintained it. So when you make the decision to purchase, it’s important to buy equipment from a company that stands behind it, because they’ve used and maintained it themselves. And wouldn’t you rather be able to use the crane for a while and understand the machine before you make the important decision to buy?

With an RPO from the ALL Family of Companies, you get all the benefits of renting a crane without the extra expenses of owning, storing, and maintaining it. And then, if you should exercise your option to buy, you can be assured that you are purchasing top-notch equipment that has been maintained in like new condition by our own technicians in our own shops.

The ALL fleet is one of the largest, most modern, and most technologically advanced in the equipment rental industry. You can also be sure that the equipment you rent or buy is the safest available and meets all OSHA and other applicable standards.

I just need a rental. Why sign an RPO?

  1. You just rented a crane for six months for a major project. As the job progresses, you may get more work on the site that requires you to rent the crane for another year or more. Having an RPO means you can purchase your rental crane and get credit for a large portion of what you’ve already paid in rental—ultimately saving you money and giving you a long-term investment.
  2. Your business is growing, and you’d like to make a capital investment in a crane. But you’re not sure if you’ll have enough work to pay for it. An RPO is the perfect solution, because you are under no obligation to exercise your option to buy. An RPO is just that—an option. It’s the ultimate “try before you buy” situation.
  3. The RPO doesn’t add to your monthly rental cost or commit you to the purchase. It’s a simple and attractive option offered to you when you rent equipment from the ALL Family of Companies.
  4. More good reasons to consider buying your rental: A tax code provision allows a depreciation bonus for capital investments. Qualifying businesses may be able to write off significant amounts of the total spend for equipment purchases. These deductions can lower your federal tax bill dramatically. For the 2014 tax year, Section 179 has been restored to its original limits of $25,000 plus an adjustment for inflation, but please consult your tax professional for more details on available incentives, which change from year to year.
