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.

Business Equipment Loans FAQ

You'll need excellent credit to get equipment financing. Applying through your local bank or an online financing company like Fora Financial can help you discover what kinds of business equipment loans you can qualify for.
It depends on how much money you need and your qualifications. Businesses with good credit that have a good history are more likely to get equipment loans. It's important to find out what lenders are looking for before you apply for a loan.
You can get equipment financing in some cases even with a bad credit score. If the equipment is something that they could repossess in the event of a default, they are more likely to offer financing. It's best to work on getting a good business credit score to help improve your options when you need equipment loans.
Some equipment loans have interest rates almost as high as 10%. Businesses with poor credit are more likely to get higher interest rate loans than those with good credit. Some interest rates are as low as 2.8% and businesses with great credit and a good business history are more likely to get that rate.
You can finance equipment from two to seven years. The lender will determine if the used equipment you want to purchase is eligible for a longer or shorter term loan.
Yes, you can use the Section 179 tax deduction for equipment financing for your business.
