Benefits of Equipment Finance
Why do over 70% of all businesses - ranging from mom-and-pop operations to Fortune 100 companies finance their equipment? It's because of access to a wide range of benefits - here are just a few.
With equipment financing, you can:
Get 100% financing
Unlike requirements of most traditional lenders, you may be able to arrange 100 percent financing of equipment with minimal down payment. This is key if cash flow is a concern to your business.
Equipment financing is a source of funding that lets you hold onto your cash, or working capital, so it can be used for other areas of your business, such as expansion, improvements, marketing or R&D.
Obtain the convenience of product and service bundling
Certain financial products allow customers to finance the entire cost of equipment, including installation, up-front maintenance, training and software charges, thereby packaging systems and ancillary products and services into a single, easy-to-manage solution.
Keep up to date with new technology
Leasing, loans or other financing often enables you to acquire more and better equipment than you could have without financing. Certain leasing finance programs can also allow for technology upgrades and/or replacements within the term of the lease contract.
Plan expenses for cash flow and business cycle fluctuations
Financing equipment helps maintain cash flow and greater certainty in budgeting by setting customized rent payments to match cash flow and even seasonal cash flows.
