Why leasing these items is better than buying

Why leasing these items is better than buying

As much as we like the idea of fully owning something by purchasing it, sometimes it isn’t the best idea to do so. There are many things that can be argued is better to buy than to lease, such as a house, but there are many things that can be argued is better to lease as well. And in this blog post, that is what we will be arguing.  Let us jump right in, and if you have a difference in opinion that is fine! Though we hope you can see our points.


IPv4 addresses

This is a great example of a product that is way better to lease than to purchase. To lease IPv4 addresses means that you won’t have to go through all the trouble of actually purchasing it brings. When it was announced that the internet protocol version 4 has finally run out, the value of one address skyrocketed. And the parties that actually require IPv4 addresses normally need them in bulk. This is fine for bigger companies that have the money, but this isn’t the case for the majority. 

Besides the absurd amount of money, there are so many rules and regulations put in place to be able to safely transfer IP addresses. And if you need them at a certain time, you will have to get the process done in advance since it takes a while for the transfer of ownership to go through. When you lease it, all that really needs to be done is the signing of the lease agreement and you can have access to the IP address immediately.


Snow sports gear

If you are going somewhere snowy to do some fun snow sports, you are going to need some good gear for protection and to actually do the sport. If you are going skiing you need some skis, snowboarding? You’ll need a snowboard, obviously. If you are not the type of person to do snow sports regularly, why would you need to purchase all that gear? All that would do is create a lot of clutter and you’ll spend a lot of money for nothing. Instead, you can lease it.


Camping gear

It’s the same concept as the snow sports gear explanation. If you do go camping regularly, then definitely go ahead and buy yourself the things you know you will need. But it won’t be necessary if you don’t go camping all that often.
