After seeing the number of its locations double in four years, PACCAR Leasing Company (PacLease) continues its rapid expansion with the announcement of 14 new locations throughout the United States and Canada. This brings the PacLease location total to 328.

“Our location growth has been outstanding,” said PacLease President Bob Southern. “PACCAR dealers are looking for more ways to serve their customers and markets — and full-service leasing offers that opportunity. They’re finding customers who understand the financial benefits of leasing premium Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks, coupled with the value of outsourcing vehicle maintenance.”

PacLease’s fleet size has doubled over the past five years and the new locations position the company well for further growth.

“Even during uncertain economic times, companies continue to turn to full-service leasing for the benefits of off-balance sheet financing and having their trucks cared for by experienced technicians,” Southern said.

“Based on historical data, we know that the truck leasing market typically expands at a faster rate than the rest of the industry during strong truck buying markets. We’re beginning to see that happen now and expect to continue this momentum as companies consider the upcoming 2010 engine change.”

According to Southern, customers can custom spec medium and heavy-duty trucks — even hybrid units — through PacLease to match their transportation requirements.

“We spec the trucks with our customers to increase operating efficiency. What’s more, we perform all the maintenance on the vehicles. It allows our customers to reduce risk by eliminating the uncertainty of unexpected costs that could impact those in ownership. PacLease also helps to improve fleet operations through on-board technology, paperless fuel tax reporting, insurance and fuel purchasing programs.”
