Are there items I can’t lease?
Yes, but very few. Some software companies do not permit the temporary assignment
of their license agreements, which is exactly what leasing is. Although exceptions
can be made, we suggest leasing only if the cost of your equipment exceeds $3,000.
What is required before my order will ship?
You must apply for the lease, receive approval and sign all leasing documentation.
How much does leasing cost?
The actual rental payment depends on the equipment you select and how long you
want to pay for its use. Leasing is not expensive. The savings in accounting
costs, better use of capital and the revenue realized on additional business
will justify the rental payments.

The Leasing Process
Am I guaranteed to get an approval if I submit an application?
Ingram Micro’s lending partners will review your application. Our strong relationship
with these lending partners provides your application with a high chance of
approval, but we cannot guarantee approval.
How long will I need to wait before they are notified of approval?
Credit decisions on deals under $100,000 are generally provided within four
business hours. Decisions on deals over $100,000 are guaranteed within 48 business
hours of receiving a complete credit package.
Do I need to supply financial statements?
For transactions totaling less than $50,000 a completed application is required.
For larger transactions, financial statements will be required. However, if
you are a public company or government entity, financial information
may be available from public sources.
Why is a personal guarantee required for some company leases?
Many different elements affect an individual’s personal credit history, including
prior bankruptcies and a less than perfect payment history. When the credit
risk is high, a personal guarantee can help secure the investment. A personal
guarantee may lower the lease rate because it lowers the risk.
Is there a minimum lease amount?
The minimum lease is $3,000.
When does the lease begin?
The lease begins after a delivery and acceptance has been signed by the lessee(customer),

payments, and, if you decide to return the equipment at the end of the lease,
