#1- Land Bigger Jobs Without Breaking the Bank

Crews with better equipment land the best jobs, which leads to more word-of-mouth referrals. When you want to bid on big jobs, you might not have enough upfront cash to buy the equipment you need. You won’t have enough time to save thousands of dollars for your new equipment.

Equipment financing can help you get the necessary equipment without draining your savings. Gain access to funds faster with a plan that fits your unique sales cycle.

How Can Financing Help?


  1. Break Down Your Equipment Cost. Expensive purchases will become manageable by breaking them down into low monthly payments.
  2. Improved Technology & Infrastructure. Allow your business to take on challenging jobs by adding the newest and best equipment.
  3. Keep Overheads Low. Financing breaks down an expensive equipment purchase into low monthly payments, which help reduce your overall cost.
  4. It’s Fast. Upgrade your setup fast- apply in minutes and get approved within 24 hours.
  5. Earn as You Finance. Put your equipment to work earning revenue, then use the funds to make your payments.

#2- Weigh Your Options

Not all landscaping businesses are the same. Understanding your business goals and budget allows you to assess what's within your reach. What’s important to remember here is that you have options.

Flexible Payment Options and Specials.

Have an inconsistent revenue stream? Make your business's growth easier by getting a creative payment plan matching your sales' timing. The right lender can help you build a financing plan catered to your business. You may qualify for seasonal payment plans, skip payments, equipment upgrades, buy now, pay later options, and other financing that matches your business. 

New Vs. Used Equipment.

Another important factor to consider is the cost of equipment. Used equipment allows you to get the equipment you need at an affordable rate to get the job done. It is a great cost-effective option. Financing partners like Beacon Funding allow you to finance used equipment as well.

Does your business have an inconsistent revenue stream? Make your business's growth easier by getting a creative payment plan matching your sales' timing.

Don’t let an opportunity slip away- consider getting pre-approved for equipment financing.

Tip #3- Work Smarter, Not Harder


Bigger landscaping companies land better jobs. That doesn’t have to be restricted to manpower. With the cost of labor increasing, competing with larger businesses in this space is challenging. We want to encourage you to work smarter, not harder.

Investing in an advanced piece of machinery can give you the advantage you need to do the work of a whole crew. Financing the latest compact loader, skid steer, or mini excavator can help you save thousands and complete jobs faster.

How You Can Apply These Tips
