    HP / Dell reps for LEASING / Financing

    A couple of questions for the pro's in the business:

    1) What is usually the best deal, per month cost wise, leasing or financing the equipment?

    2) What is the best way to get a Sales rep from HP and Dell to give you quotes? Just call 1-888-dell?

    Thanks

    1. There are different types of leasing arrangements, whats best for you depends on your situation. Really it comes down to if you want to carry the asset on your books or not.

    2. Once you have some volume, you'll probably get assigned a rep and you can call them directly. Until then the 800# is probably a good place to start.

    Dell's financing is very, very easy to deal with. They'll give financing to virtually anybody, and the terms are great. The downside, however, is they don't report good trade references to DnB, so it doesn't do much to help you build your company's credit standing.

    As for buying from HP, HP's financing group sucks. We use Intel Financial, and I highly recommend them. They'll take your quote and shop it out to a number of different leasing companies, and get you good deals. My guy over there is Scott Peters 888-852-5155 Ext. 222, [email protected]. He's awesome.

    No they don't report to DNB and we are finding that when asking for an increase they want to pull the DNB. That is a huge disappointment as they should be adding to it. Overall Dell is easy to deal with and once you get past the 25k level you will have a direct sales rep and that makes life really nice.

    Beyond the DNB issue, my main problem with DFS (Dell Financial Services) is how incompetent they are at handling paperwork. We've had Dell ship hardware to 4 different locations, so whenever we do a Dell lease, we have no idea where DFS is going to send stuff.. We can't get them to update our addresses consistently from one call to the next. Drives me nuts.

    We have quite a sizable contract with Dell SMB and I must say that our Dell reps are top notch. If they don't have the answer they are willing to get a company vendor on the phone to answer my questions. They do an amazing job of knocking prices and even meeting / matching price quotes. I was completely unaware about them not reporting th DNB though, luckily the company I work for has quite a good credit rating.
