New York, NY., July 1, 2015 -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCO) today announced that the City of Beaumont in Texas has become the latest jurisdiction to take advantage of Sparta's growing Municipal Lease program with the city's acquisition of a fleet of new BMW police motorcycles for its police department.
In recent years, an ever-increasing number of cities, counties, and towns across the country have turned away from the tradition of purchasing their essential equipment, which requires total up-front payments, in favor of Sparta's Municipal Lease Program. The Sparta program enables municipalities to pay the cost of equipment over time, providing local government agencies with the benefit of lowering their annual capital outlays as they acquire the critical equipment they need.
The Sparta Municipal Lease Program can accommodate a wide variety of asset classes, from cars to motorcycles, from fire equipment to tactical vehicles, from trucks to busses, and virtually any type of essential-use equipment in which cost is more favorably budgeted through multi-year leasing, rather than outright purchase.
Commenting on the transaction, Jim Stockstill, Sales Manager at the delivering dealership, Gulf Coast BMW, said, "This was our first time engaging in this type of lease transaction and we weren't sure what to expect. We spoke with Sparta's Municipal Leasing team and they were able to ensure that all of our needs, as well as our client's needs, were met in the most effective manner possible. The staff at Sparta partnered with us and assisted from contract execution all the way to delivery and funding. The next time we are approached to lease equipment to any of our local police agencies, we wouldn't hesitate to contact Sparta again."
