Rent, Lease and Buy Test Equipment

If you’re responsible for acquiring and managing your company’s test and measurement equipment resources, then TRS-RenTelco is here to help. We offer many highly customizable and flexible rental and leasing programs along with pre-owned equipment for sale to help you acquire the electronic test equipment you need and stay within your budget.


To help you choose the right acquisition option for your needs please review our available options.


Rental - For Short Term Needs

Renting is perfectly suited for planned or unplanned temporary projects, facilitating peak load capacity requirements or when you need more test equipment than you currently own. Short term rentals may also be beneficial when evaluating your existing electronic test equipment, temporarily replacing assets out for repair, for use in training, or for other high-priority needs.


The Benefits of Renting Are:
  • No fixed time period – use the equipment for as long as you need

  • Flexible terms are available for short or long-term project needs

  • Return equipment when projects are completed without incurring any additional cost

  • Provides an opportunity to try new technology before you buy it

  • Offers solutions for safeguarding and complying with budget restraints

  • Helps control and maintain issues associated with obsolescence

  • Eliminates the worry of ownership, maintenance and calibration expenses


Lease, Rent-to-Own or TIP – For Longer Term Needs

For long-term projects or in situations when you need to conserve capital, avoid obsolescence, revamp your technology, or perform routine maintenance, a leasing, rent-to-own or Technology Investment Plan (TIP) may provide you with the best solution.

The Benefits of Leasing Are:
  • Flexible financing plans allow for a wide array of purchase and upgrade options

  • Preserves credit lines for other expenditures

  • Helps maintain borrowing power and requires less up-front cash

  • Tax benefits may be available since lease payments are typically treated as an operating expense

  • Obsolescence and unplanned equipment maintenance expenses can be avoided

  • Leases can be renewed at the end of the term or continued on a monthly basis

  • Buy-out options are often available at the end of your term

  • Maintenance, associated software, and repair costs can be included in the lease agreement.


Buying Pre-Owned Test Equipment

We offer a wide variety of previously-rented models from premier manufacturers for purchase. There are thousands of models in our inventory, attractively priced and immediately available. Our rent-to-own offers allow you to spread out your payments across a fixed period, at the end of which the product is yours to keep. Our divide-by-12 initiatives allow you to simply divide the product’s list price by 12 and pay for it on a month-by-month basis with zero percent interest based on your credit.


We offer financing options, limited warranties, and the full service support of our technical team on every piece of equipment you buy. Check out our complete list of models for sale here.
