About Us

Since 1984, Interstate Leasing Company has supplied all types of businesses, institutions, and equipment suppliers with the financing to increase their profits and sales. We write leases throughout the U.S., and we finance virtually any type of equipment – from computers to industrial machinery to state-of-the-art medical equipment – in amounts from $3,000 up into the millions.

We also have the capability to design leases that meet each customer’s individual needs, and to adapt and enhance our programs as technology and the economy evolve. One example is our TurnKey Lease program, which combines everything required to open or upgrade an office into one lease package with one monthly payment.

Finally, we offer finance packages for mortgages and leasehold improvements that are designed to supply up to 100% of the funds you need to purchase a building, move or expand your business.

Interstate Leasing was founded by Bernard Maurer in 1984 following 8 years in the Automobile Fleet Leasing Business. Mr. Maurer was a partner in a Thrifty Rent A Car Franchise, followed by Manager’s positions in National & Local rental & leasing companies. Interstate began as a commercial fleet lessor of cars and small trucks. It grew to be licensed in 26 states with a portfolio of several hundred vehicles. With the advent of Factory Subsidies for interest rates and residual values the playing field tilted heavily in favor of major car/truck manufacturers and Mr. Maurer made a decision to phase out of the fleet business and concentrate on Equipment Leasing. Since the early 90’s with the exception of Non-subsidized vehicles, virtually 100% of their business has been in the equipment field where they have built a nationwide network of equipment vendors and developers. Today their primary focus is Medical Related Equipment and the Hospitality industry. Interstate still leases small individual pieces of equipment (phones, computers, etc.), however, they now provide financing for entire projects (purchase of real estate, renovations, outfitting, etc.). Recent projects include several hotels, medical complexes and a 300 unit student housing complex.
