What is Equipment Financing?

Equipment financing helps you finance up to 100% of the new or used equipment you need for your business. Applying for an equipment loan is typically a fast and easy way to finance the purchase of most types of equipment—computers, machinery, vehicles, or whatever else you need.

Businesses commonly get equipment financing in these situations:

  • You need expensive equipment, but can’t afford to (or don’t want to) purchase that equipment up-front,
  • You need to replace your equipment frequently because it has a short lifespan or you always need the latest in technology, or…
  • You need some combination of the above.
