Why should you consider equipment financing for your business?

1. Equipment Financing Helps You Get Equipment Sooner

First and foremost, you get the equipment sooner. You may not have all the cash on hand to purchase a piece of equipment outright, but if you finance the equipment instead the lender can help you afford the equipment today. Equipment financing allows you to get the equipment in production generating revenue faster than if you waited around to have all that purchasing power on hand.

There’s also opportunity cost associated with waiting to make that purchase. If you are hesitant about financing, ask yourself if your business is comfortable with:

  • Lost contracts
  • Outsourcing business you could do yourself
  • Growing at a slower rate

2. Conserve Your Cash for When You Need It

A dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow.  Simply put, you cannot finance things like marketing costs, but you can get an affordable monthly payment on a piece of equipment.

Using all the cash you have on hand to purchase a piece of equipment can make operating expenses really tight. No business wants to be equipment rich and cash poor. With equipment financing, you can conserve your cash for a rainy day, payroll, operating expenses, etc.

3. Finance New and Used Equipment

Equipment financing isn’t only for new equipment. A quality equipment financing lender will offer financing both new and used equipment. This opens your business up to more options to find the right equipment for your unique situation.

With this flexibility, make sure to evaluate:

  • Price point: Which equipment will fit your monthly budget?
  • Reliability: Has the equipment been inspected?
  • Convenience: Is the equipment currently available, or does it have production delays?

If you need help evaluating your equipment options, Beacon Funding has over 30 years of expertise. Talk to your financing consultant about your options and if your equipment will meet your goals.

4. Wide Credit Window

A wide credit window is another great reason to consider equipment financing.

On one end of the spectrum, Beacon Funding has applicants who have been in business for years with well-established personal and business credit history. On the other end, we have also approved applicants with more challenged credit or just starting out in the business.

A best-in-class financing partner will have options for both start-ups, established businesses, and everyone in-between. Beacon Funding’s focus on wide credit windows and niche equipment means we’re able to give an approval to 7 out of 10 applicants.

5. Fixed Monthly Payments

Knowing your fixed monthly expenses is powerful for a business. Knowing your operating expenses will help you budget accordingly and grow your business.
