What is an Equipment Loan?
An equipment loan is a type of loan intended to help businesses purchase necessary equipment for their business. Business equipment loans are used for any equipment needed to produce, manufacture or process products. They can be used for computers and technology supplies, special machinery, industrial equipment, and more. All of these materials help businesses operate at their best capacity.
How Equipment Loans Work
Loans are different than leasing when it comes to business equipment. Loans are best if you have at least 20% to put down on a piece of equipment. They work by giving businesses funds to replace old or broken equipment, buy new equipment for the purpose of expansion, or add more items of the same kind to your equipment inventory.

A loan for equipment can only be used for that purpose. These types of loans are not intended to alleviate cash flow problems, but to instead ensure that your equipment is always in working order.Learn Why Us
