Like most loans, the amount of funding being received is determined by what your business qualifies for as well as the price of the equipment you are planning to purchase.
With most equipment loans, the equipment itself is used to secure the loan. This means if your business fails to make its payments, your lender can reclaim the financed equipment to help cover its losses.
Equipment financing allows your business to replace damaged or outdated machinery without tying up too much of your business’s working capital at once.
An equipment loan is ideal when your business needs to purchase an expensive piece of equipment. Equipment financing lenders can offer up to 100% of the capital needed to make the purchase.
Equipment loan terms can range from 1-5 years, with payments that can be made either monthly or weekly depending on the length of the loan and your business’s current financial situation.
Online applications make applying for the funding your business needs simple. It’s common for most business owners to use a loan at some point during their career, just as its common for a business to need to purchase new business equipment over the years. Applying for equipment financing makes sense for a variety of business owners. Whether you're financing an expensive piece of equipment that falls outside of your business’s price range or the majority of your capital is currently invested elsewhere, this type of loan is a valuable tool used across many different industries.
Business equipment loans are used to purchase new machinery outright. Owning your business equipment makes sense when it’s a durable machine like a cash register, fridge or vehicle. Leasing business equipment is another option many business owners consider.
It makes sense to lease when you work in an industry where technology is rapidly advancing and the equipment you plan to purchase could quickly become outdated.
Leasing also may not require a down payment. This makes it a favorable option for business owners who aren’t in a position to put money down immediately or would prefer to invest elsewhere.
When deciding if new business equipment should be purchased or leased, consider the following:
Deciding to lease or buy your business equipment can be a difficult decision to make. Consider all of your variables and weigh your options before making your choice. Be sure to consider how each will affect your company’s cash flow in the long run.
To give you a better idea of what equipment financing might cost, let's use an example. In this scenario, your company is looking to buy a new oven.
The oven you want to purchase is $10,000. Your lender is willing to offer 100% of the equipment value with a 15% interest rate.
If you are repaying this amount monthly over 3 years, you’ll be making 36 monthly payments of $319.45.
By the end of your loan, you will have paid an additional $1,500.
This is just an example and interest rates will vary from lender to lender, but this should give you an idea of whether your business can afford to take on an equipment loan or not.
