Buying a tow truck can be a big investment. Even at the right price it takes a lot of upfront cash to purchase a tow truck. The reality is tow trucks aren’t cheap in 2023.

Saving up enough cash for your truck purchase is possible. However, saving cash takes time. Not to mention, a large cash purchase can leave a huge hole in your business’s balance sheet.

Fortunately, you have choices on buying your truck. Even better – you have an alternative that’s faster and more affordable than paying with cash.

Save time and make your purchase more affordable with tow truck financing

When your goal for 2023 is to expand your towing radius – and keep your costs low – it pays to have a fast and affordable solution. Tow trucking financing is a choice that works.

Tow truck financing spreads out your expensive equipment purchase into low monthly payments. This allows you to get your next truck into your fleet fast, conserve your business liquidity, and expand your towing capabilities in one smart move.

And with another truck in your fleet, that means your business can generate more revenue fast.

With the help of an A+ rated lender, chances are good can get approved within 48 hours for tow truck financing   – even if you’re a start-up.

The Advantages of Tow Truck Financing

There are several advantages to financing your next tow truck instead of paying cash. Not only can you conserve your cash, you’ll also be able to:

  • Lower the upfront cost of your next tow truck.
  • Establish business credit and protect your personal assets.
  • Qualify for a major tax deduction by acquiring equipment.

Financing a truck allows your business to:

  • Expand your towing radius.
  • Add more hauling power to your fleet.
  • Have cash on hand for unexpected expenses like repairs, accidents, etc.

In general, adding a tow truck to your fleet not only means saying yes to more customers, but you can also accelerate your bottom line.

How Tow Truck Financing Helps Your Business

A large cash payment may seem convenient, but tow trucks can be pricey. When prices for a new rollback can cost anywhere between $75,000 - $130,000, that’s a lot of dough for a single purchase.

Unlike paying cash, tow truck financing allows you to keep your savings.

Your business may need savings for:

  • Emergencies: You don’t know when the next truck breakdown or business expense will pop up.
  • Payroll: Your employees need to get paid for their hard work.
  • Saying yes to growth opportunities: There might be a new opportunity to expand your business in the near future… are you ready for it?
