We make school budgets go further...

Utility Rentals are leading lease funding and asset finance providers to the education sector and we specialise in helping schools, academies, colleges and universities to make their budgets go further via our market leading rental and subscription solutions.

As an independent company without any reliance on third party funding and with no expensive broker fees to pay, we offer a competitive range of flexible solutions to the education sector that can be used for any equipment ranging from individual appliances to an iPad for every pupil. And using our established links to key suppliers to the education sector and pre-negotiated education friendly rates on equipment, we’ve done all the hard work on behalf of our customers already.

Our focus is on providing the education sector with the best and most up to date equipment available, at rates which are entirely affordable enabling schools to keep their classrooms up to date and maintained at all times.

...using our compliant Rental Agreements!

At Utility Rentals – leasing to the education sector is our core offering, and ensuring our product is compliant with education sector legislation is paramount.

Schools and Academies are only allowed to lease equipment via an operating lease as per the regulations and advice given to Schools and Academies by the Department for Education.

All of our Rental Agreements and Subscription Services are compliant operating leases. There’s no long complex contracts – just simple, clear and transparent paperwork and terms, without any hidden surprises during the rental period. We are also completely clear on what a school’s options are at the end of the rental period – right from the start, so there are no unknowns along the way.

And as our funding solution can be used for almost any equipment and associated services such as install and ongoing maintenance, leasing can be a great way for schools to prevent equipment from becoming redundant and ensure they provide an exceptional classroom experience to their pupils.

    Maximise your budget

    Spreading the cost of equipment over a number of years works perfectly for schools as it enables budgets to go further and more equipment to be acquired at once, keeping classrooms up to date.
