Commercial and financial considerations

Fixed monthly fee

Paying a fixed monthly rate is the standard method available. We mutually predetermine your payment schedules to allow better predictability.

Capex deferral

Deferral plans let you make payments for items like capital equipment, capital tools, wear and spare parts and setup costs at a later date, rather than the date of purchase.

Cost per hour 

Cost Per Hour payment plans take cost spikes out of the picture and allow you to be charged based on your operating time during a given month.

Extended warranty

With many of the LCS package options, extended warranties are available, covering the replacement of designated main components.
