Services offered by Advanced Test Equipment Rentals




Rent Test Equipment

Advanced Test Equipment started as a second tier dealer of used test equipment and quickly discovered the benefits of having a rental inventory available for our clients. Some advantages include the limiting of down time in the event equipment fails or goes out of calibration, and that peaks in customers’ workloads made renting a more favorable method over acquiring test equipment for these seasonal periods.  

As ATEC became more familiar with renting test equipment, we learned about the tax advantages of renting versus buying while working in collaboration with some of our savvy customers. While capital equipment acquisitions are taxed and then depreciated over their life, rental equipment is not. The cost of the rental test equipment comes from the expense budget and can simply be allocated directly to the project it is being used for, allowing your company to write off the rentals as an expense that same year, and so, becoming a tax savings that makes renting an easier and best practice.

Rentals are typically done on a month to month basis, billing in 30 day cycles but are also available day-to-day, week-to-week, and even year-to-year terms. Visit Our FAQ’s page for billing, shipping and other questions regarding the details of ordering.


There are many benefits to Renting


Topics Cover:

  • Tax Advantages: Rental expenses are 100% tax deductible on your business taxes.
  • Save Time with Immediate Delivery: No long lead times, get equipment immediately.
  • Conserves Capital : Renting comes out of your expense budget.
  • Eliminate Depreciation & Obsolete Equipment: Technology moves fast, don't spend a fortune when
  •    version 2.0 is coming out next year.
  • Evaluate Equipment Pre-Purchase: Determine what equipment best suits you.
  • Keep project on Schedule: Equipment goes down or may need to be calibrated.
  • Maintenance Costs: Not your equipment, not your responsibility.

Lease or Rent with Option

Customers call upon Advanced Test Equipment Rentals all the time needing equipment for lab expansions and other projects that are beginning immediately, but do not have the capital in their budget to acquire the equipment. The answer, Rent With Option (RWO). The RWO service is a rental with the option to own, allowing customers to rent equipment in as short as one month or as long as 36 months while accruing equity in the equipment in order to purchase once the capital becomes available.  This service also expands to customers uncertain if they need or want to own test equipment because of project load, capability or necessity. The flexible RWO service option allows customers to use money from your expense budget and minimizing the capital cost of the asset.
