Why leasing a factory is more cost effective

Manufacturing-Warehouse-for-rentWhy leasing a factory is more cost effective.

The biggest point to make here is Leasing a manufacturing facility leaves your company with more capital to invest in machinery to make what you manufacture.  Why tie up your precious capital to buy a factory when you can lease a facility?  Here is an article on why leasing a factory is more cost effective.

There are many factors every business need to consider when getting ready to make the decision whether to buy or rent or lease a factory or manufacturing facility. Once a business determines its manufacturing facility needs and locates the right facility, it is time for yet another decision regarding the business property: Do you buy, rent or lease a factory?

This question is raised in two contexts; first the owner of the target property will have to consider, either a capital lease or a straight rental of the property. And secondly you have to check what makes more financial sense – do we need to buy or can we just lease a factory. To help you make this decision, you need to compare the economics – what will this look like on our balance sheet?  What is 10 or 20 years down the road we need to relocate – will it take 3, 4 or 5 years to dissolve of this property.

There is always a debacle when somebody considers the option of buying as compared to leasing a manufacturing facility. Some people may hesitate from leasing because of building potential equity.  However, a competent financial analyst can confirm that leasing is a far more cost effective way of operating a business.

The main advantage of leasing a manufacturing facility or factory is that your initial outlay of cash to gain the use of the property is generally less for leasing than it is for purchasing. You should also look at the trade offs of both options, which are generally less for leasing as compared to those of buying. Apart from this if you want the facility for a short period of time – such as less than 20 years then leasing is by far the best option over purchasing.

There are multiple factors that would imply that leasing is a superior option as compared to an outright purchase. For assets with a shorter life, for example, it would be wiser to keep a lease on as opposed to a buyout. If you would like to buy equipment in bulk for your business or organization, it could create an extra pressure on the future financing of the company.  Again, leasing can be utilized to create smaller payments every month, even on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.  Leaving your company more capital to invest in machinery to make what you manufacture.

When you keep all this in mind, if you are considering to lease or rent industrial space or a manufacturing facility for building your business, it makes more sense, both financially and economically, to go for an option that gives you more flexibility and more cash flow to breathe.

Steps to Lease Manufacturing and Warehouse Space

Warehouse-Manufacturing-Space-For-LeaseSteps to Lease Manufacturing and Warehouse Space

Leasing Manufacturing, Warehouse and Commercial spaces is almost always more cost effective than building a large space of your own. Once you know what your needs are – and how much space you require, you will need to understand the type of leases, how to negotiate leases and most important is how to protect your rights as a lessee.

For organizations that require large amount of Industrial space such as warehouses, a Commercial Broker or an industrial park would be an ideal location to find facilities for lease. Industrial Parks are land complexes that are divided into large sections that can be used for building or leasing a Manufacturing and Warehouse Facility, Storage and Distribution space, as well as space for light manufacturing and many industrial applications.

There are many benefits of leasing an Industrial building. Some of the advantages includes:

  1. Preservation of Capital:  Most companies would rather reserve capital for expansion of their operation as opposed to spending precious cash on real estate.  That is truly the #1 reason why you look for Industrial space to rent.
  1. Affordable, Flexible Lease: Large industrial space is significantly more cost effective to rent than finished commercial office spaces or established retail spaces. The industrial spaces can be used for a variety of purposes – leasing agents and commercial Attorneys can also be handy when dealing with the terms of industrial space leases.
  1. Cheaper to renovate than purchasing a building: If one needs custom designed facilities, but cannot spend to purchase and renovate your own building. Most of the industrial spaces for rent allow tenants to build out, modify or renovate warehouses into production or even distribution facilities.
  1. Provides More Zoning Options: It may be easier to convert industrial spaces into manufacturing and office than to convert existing building in areas zoned for other purposes.
  1. Add Usable Sq. Feet without increasing Rent: Most of the large industrial spaces have higher ceilings.  Space is usually leased by the square foot – but can be rented by the cubic foot – ask your Industrial facility representative.  Ken Garcia 859-494-5521
