One Dollar Purchase Option ($1 Buy Out)

This a great option for customers who ultimately want to own their equipment without incurring all of the expense up front.

The $1 Buy Out options combines the benefits of leasing and ownership at the same time.  You are able to take advantage of a monthly payment schedule, while becoming the owner of the equipment at the end of the term for $1.00.

 Fair Market Value Option (FMV)
