The Leasing Advantage

A Simple & Straightforward Lease Process

Lease Program Setup in 4 Simple Steps


First thing’s first, we want to learn about you. We take a consultative approach to understand your needs and business objectives.

Lease Proposal & Approval

Once we find the best solution for your equipment finance needs, we present a lease proposal for your review and signature.

Master Lease Agreement

This one-time document covers the terms and conditions of our relationship and streamlines the documentation process for all future leases.

Equipment Order, Delivery & Acceptance

We work with your preferred vendors to purchase the equipment and schedule delivery. Upon delivery of the equipment, we ask you to sign the lease acceptance documentation. We never pay any vendor without your authorization to do so.

Zoom Meetings

We want to stay connected, even when we aren’t in the same place. We use virtual meetings when face-to-face isn’t an option.

 Say Hello to Smart Return Features

Clean Walk Away

Clear and honest contract terms allow you to return equipment at lease expiration with no further obligation or restocking fees.

Hassle-Free Returns

Equipment doesn’t need to be returned in its original packaging. With available cherry-picking, select what you want to keep or return.

Pack & Ship Logistics

First American can assist with equipment packaging, pick-up and shipping services. We work with logistics companies familiar with handling delicate equipment. Plus, nationwide return locations help save money on shipping costs.

Data Sanitization

A Department of Defense-level data wipe helps ensure that your sensitive information has been removed. This can be done on-site or at one of our facilities for your convenience. A Certificate of Data Destruction may be obtained for your records following the data wipe.

Eco-Friendly Disposal

First American is R2 certified, meaning your assets will be recycled properly and sustainably according to industry standard.

Our simple & straightforward process saves you money and time, allows you to be in control of your leasing outcomes, and provides a level of service you won’t find anywhere else.
