A leasing company specializes in providing assets or property to individuals or businesses for a specified period, typically in exchange for regular payments. These assets can include vehicles, equipment, real estate, or even technology. Rather than purchasing an item outright, leasing allows the lessee (the person or entity using the asset) to use it for an agreed-upon duration by making regular payments to the lessor (the leasing company). At the end of the lease term, the lessee can often choose to return the asset, renew the lease, or sometimes even purchase the asset at an agreed-upon price.
