MADISON, Ind., Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Without advanced welders and the latest collision repair equipment, it can be difficult to properly repair today's vehicles. But buying new equipment outright can be expensive and may not be the most efficient way for all shop owners to grow their businesses. That's why Chief Automotive Technologies has added new equipment leasing tools to its website, These tools make it easy for shops to access the latest Chief products without making sacrifices elsewhere.

"Leasing does not require a large initial cash outlay," says Bob Holland, director of collision sales in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). "It enables shop owners to obtain the tools necessary to repair new vehicles made with aluminum, advanced high-strength steels and modern construction methods, while also investing in facility updates or advertising. Lease payments are usually fixed, which makes it easier to budget for the long term than with a variable-rate line of credit. Plus, with a lease the shop can use the equipment to do better quality work with brand new tools while still paying for those tools."

Chief's online leasing tools can be accessed at They include quote calculators and applications from Lease Corporation of America (LCA) and New Vision Equipment Leasing. These two companies have partnered with Chief to offer lease and financing packages specifically designed for collision repair equipment customers and distributors in the United States and Canada.

To start the leasing process, simply fill out the LCA or New Vision credit application at Once approved, a payment schedule can be structured to meet the customer's specific needs. All Chief equipment, including its full line of MIG/MAG and spot welders, the LaserLock Live Mapping system, frame racks, structural holding components and shop tools, is eligible for financing.
