How To Buy


We understand that purchasing a Lenco armored vehicle represents a major investment. Over our years of experience, we’ve pulled together several resources to help you get the protection you deserve.

Contracts & Financing

Your first step is to consider our financing options, which include leasing programs and pre-approved purchasing contracts.

Free Grant Assistance

We also provide free grant assistance to help your organization identify and apply for grants to fund your purchase.

Get Started

When you’re ready to buy, or any time you need help identifying your next steps, our sales associates are ready to serve.

U.S. Government Cooperative Purchasing Contracts

We work closely with government and private organizations to provide a collection of contracts that are pre-approved in many States and may be utilized by any municipality in the U.S. Our GSA or Sole Source programs ensure that you will get the Federal Government’s guaranteed minimum price. To learn more about how these purchasing contracts can help you purchase a Lenco Armored Vehicle for your community, contact a member of our sales team.

During the blizzard, our BearCat was one of the few vehicles we had to assist 108 stranded motorists…you’ve got to find a way to help make that happen, and that’s what we did. — Sgt. Ricky Ahlgren
