Equipment Financing FAQs

Getting an equipment lease or financing can help you fund a variety of business needs. This financing solution can be used for things like: 

  • Vehicles
  • Heavy machinery
  • Restaurant appliances
  • Medical equipment
  • Office furniture
  • Technology systems

Regardless of your company’s industry, exploring your equipment finance options could help the success of your business. Plus, equipment lenders usually report to business credit. The more business credit you build the greater opportunity you have in the future to receive the best rates and terms for the money you receive and increase your businesses ability to receive future loans without a personal guarantee.

The largest difference between an equipment lease and equipment loan are that an equipment lease has a fixed term, in which you pay a monthly rental feel, with no prepay benefits, and an equipment loan can be paid off at any time with any remaining interest wiped clean. 

There are multiple structures available for equipment leasing including:

  • Equipment Financing Agreement: Fixed payments are made over a set term after which you own the equipment in full.
  • Fair Market Value: Fixed payments are made over a set term after which you can return the equipment, renew the lease or purchase the equipment at fair market value. 
  • Purchase Upon Termination: Require the customer to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease term at a certain percentage of the original purchase price.

Equipment financing is a type of funding that gives you full ownership of the equipment. You’ll pay interest in addition to the principal balance, usually as a fixed monthly payment. But once your financing  term is over, you own the equipment free and clear. 
Choosing the best equipment financing option depends on the type of equipment you need, how long you expect to need it, and how frequently you plan to update those assets. 

One of the biggest advantages of equipment financing is that it helps you grow your business with new equipment while spreading out the costs over time. Additionally, you often don’t need any collateral besides the asset itself. By integrating new equipment into your business, you could increase revenue and reach with your services. 

A drawback is that funds can only be used for equipment and sometimes soft costs associated with the purchase, such as taxes or delivery fees. Other types of financing, such as a small business loan or business line of credit, have minimal restrictions on how you use the funding proceeds.

  • Scale your business
  • Spread out large capital costs
