The idea of leasing a canopy might not have crossed your mind, but when you lease a school canopy you can get the exact fit for your school’s needs without compromising on spec or budget! In this article, we give you an overview of our canopy leasing agreements for schools and their many built-in benefits!

5 reasons to lease a school canopy

At Utility Rentals, we’re proud to partner with leading canopy design and manufacturer Canopies UK to bring you a fantastic range of high-quality playground canopies.

Accessing this equipment for your school could be easier than you think, as all of our canopies are available to lease via our flexible leasing agreements.

Let’s take a look at the benefits of leasing a canopy:

1) No upfront capital outlay

We regularly work with schools and we recognise that delays with funding or budget can prevent projects from moving forward as quickly as you might like.

When you lease a school canopy, you can get your chosen model straight away without waiting for capital to become available. This also enables you to free up capital outlay for other school projects!

2) Get the canopy you want

Leasing allows your school to choose its ideal canopy, in a way that might not be financially achievable if you were purchasing it outright. This means you don’t have to compromise or settle for a design that isn’t quite right!

3) Easy budgeting

Your payments are fixed for the period of your leasing agreement, making it easy to budget. This means they’re protected against inflation and you won’t get any nasty surprises!

Our agreements also allow you to choose to pay on a termly, quarterly, or annual basis – for maximum flexibility.

4) Compliant operating lease

Our straightforward school-friendly leases are fully compliant, approved by the Department for Education, and designed specifically for the education sector. Our long-term relationships with manufacturers and suppliers also enable us to achieve the best prices and pass them to you!

5) Flexibility and peace of mind

We provide an end-to-end service through our leasing agreements. You can choose to include elements like groundwork, installation, and ongoing maintenance, for example.

We guarantee your canopy for the full term of your lease. At the end of your leasing agreement, we offer flexible options for you to continue using your canopy.

At Utility Rentals, we’ve helped thousands of schools get the equipment they want via our leasing agreements. So, if the only thing stopping you from considering a school canopy is budget, this needn’t put you off any longer!
