We understand that businesses in the automotive industry have unique finance requirements for specialist equipment and technologies. We invest time and effort into our asset finance products so you can spend more time worrying about the things that truly matter to your business.

The CHG-MERIDIAN Approach to Asset Finance for Transport

At CHG-MERIDIAN, we provide technology leasing asset financing solutions for businesses working in the automotive sector, including IT equipment and the industrial equipment needed to manufacture, maintain, and store vehicles. 

As experts in the leasing of the latest equipment and technology for the automotive and transport sector, we can offer bespoke financial models designed around your specific volumes, helping to simplify cost control while reducing investment risk.


We are fully independent of all manufacturers and banks. This allows us to provide our customers with individual, neutral advice, and guidance. And, because we support our customers in the automotive industry with an external view, we can offer a truly non-biased opinion.


In our quest for a carbon neutral world, we wanted to do more than just provide basic asset finance solutions. That’s why we’ve developed our own carbon-neutral asset financing solution, carbonZER0.

Our online asset and contract management system, TESMA® gives you full transparency over assets including every single material handling vehicle and technology we have supplied, and the related service data.

Benefits of Technology Financing with CHG-MERIDIAN

Technology leasing with CHG-MERIDIAN offers a number of benefits, including:

Lower total cost of ownership

The amount paid over the lifetime of your assets will typically be lower than the capital cost of the manufacturing equipment.

Cost management

Spread the cost of your assets over their useful economic life, rather than having to invest a significant amount of capital upfront.


With our asset financing solutions for the automotive and transport sector, you can scale your equipment and technology needs up or down as needed. This is particularly useful if you experience cyclical revenue.

Lower maintenance costs and reduced downtime

With a regular refresh cycle in place, you can rest assured that your equipment is fully up to date and, as a result, is unlikely to require maintenance. This not only reduces repair costs, but also reduces the risk of downtime, which can be incredibly costly.

Stay one step ahead

It’s vital that your business stays up to date with the latest developments in technology. Asset financing allows you to do that without the cost of constantly buying and replacing equipment.
