Finance & Fit out options


We know that new office furniture can be a big investment so we offer a leasing facility as an alternative way to pay for your purchase.


Leasing is an effective method of spreading the cost of your furniture over a period of up to five years.


This means that your office interior can be updated without an upfront expenditure.


CBS work with independent local financial partners to ensure that you get the right product, on the right payment plan.


To better understand the benefits of leasing or for more information simply give us a call.
