Equipment Leasing from Johnson Reed

Welcome to Johnson Reed, the UK’s leading equipment leasing and finance provider

Equipment leasing is a vital tool for all businesses looking to grow and finance equipment, especially when the current UK recovery is so fragile. It allows you to agree a fixed term contract with which you can lease brand new equipment without a big outlay in capital.

We have sourced equipment leasing to a huge variety of organisations for over 15 years. Our clients include sole traders, limited companies, local authorities, schools, restaurants, and many more.

We are also leading the march to re-introduce ‘Common Sense Underwriting’ to the UK. You don’t need to turn to your bank for a costly finance agreement, when leasing brings so many advantages.

At Johnson Reed we understand this completely. That's why we'll have our initial discussion with you, and then source your funding in a timely manor. We'll also be there throughout the term of your financial agreement. If we're unable to help you will be informed ASAP. We will NOT waste your time.

  • We were recommended to Johnson Reed and we’ve found them to be competitive, professional and they offered a fast turnaround. They’ve also made it easier for us by explaining in full our end of lease options in advance of signing. There are no nasty surprises at the end of the period, which we had with our previous loan company.

  • As Johnson Reed did such a good job with our IT needs, we called them back in August last year to help us finance new air conditioning units to the tune of £15,000. We’re delighted with the speed and efficiency of their service.

    Alan Haigh, Director of OPM Group IT Equipment Finance

  • Opening new premises is a busy time so it was fantastic that Johnson Reed was able to liaise with the lead contractor to make all of the finance and invoicing arrangements. Rates were agreed on the phone and I only needed a single meeting to sign the paperwork at the end of the process.
