    Was kinda wondering what some of y'all do about company trucks for mowing and what not. Do you lease or buy out right? And Why? Thanks.

    I buy, that way I can put as many miles on as I want and I dont have to worry about scratches and dents.

    a lease is always....always a bad decision.

    you can buy a truck for a grand. it doesn't have to be the nicest truck in the world to pull a mower around.

    Leasing isnt ALWAYS a bad idea, but you need a large company to justify it. We have 6 trucks and only buy 2006-2008 with 120k+ miles for $4-7k

    Keep your fixed it overhead as low as humanly possible.
