If you are weighing up the pros and cons of leasing your computer equipment we are here to make things a little easier for you! Here are the top five advantages of renting your IT equipment.

Extended warranty and support

Renting your computer, laptop or tablet from Hardsoft gives you a free three year warranty on your product. This is substantially more cover than you get as standard with Apple’s one year warranty and saves you from having to pay for the additional ‘Apple Care’ package. In addition, if you are renting a Mac and something goes wrong we’ll loan you another one if we need to take yours in for repair.
What’s more, your three year warranty is inclusive of parts and labour costs so you don’t need to worry about being stung with a big bill should something go wrong with your equipment.
If there are any day to day issues we also offer ongoing telephone support. Our Apple certified engineers can offer remote fixes and there’s no limit to how many times you can call us. If you prefer you can also contact us via email or start a web chat right here on our website.

Inclusive accident cover for iPads

The great thing about tablets is their portability but with that comes the added risk of accidental damage when you are out and about. At Hardsoft we want to ensure that you don’t have to worry about something happening to your iPad, so we include accidental damage cover as standard with this product, as well as the standard three year warranty at no extra cost.

Change with the technology

Apple is renowned for continual improvement and while this is great for the customer who wants to constantly have new innovations, it can mean that your technology can feel outdated very quickly. If you’ve made the decision to purchase your equipment outright, and spent hundreds of pounds doing so, it’s understandable that you might be less than keen to buy something new again just a couple of years later. However, if you are leasing your equipment, you can upgrade just 24 months after the start of your rental term.

Tax benefits

You’ll gain more tax relief from claiming the rental costs of your IT equipment through Hardsoft than you will from buying equipment outright and then claiming capital allowance. Using the example of either leasing or buying a Mac, the below image shows that you can claim almost 200% more tax relief over three years through renting your equipment than you can by buying it.
