Just like in the name, this plan does exactly what it sounds like.
100% Financing is a plan where you provide the lender no initial cash payment for the equipment you want to finance. This means you can conserve your cash and reap the rewards of your equipment immediately.
Ditch the down payment and receive your equipment for no money down. Use the revenue generated from your equipment for your needs.

How do you want to control your financing? It can all be up to you.
Step Payments allow you to control how you manage your initial 3 to 6 monthly payments. Depending on what you need, you have options to start your equipment financing with either higher or lower monthly payments.
You can use that time to ramp up your business, train employees, save more cash, and build your customer base.
Step Down Payment
Step Up Payment Plan

Looking to acquire multiple equipment pieces at once? We make it easy.

- Perfect for adding more equipment.
- Lower your existing monthly payments.
- Grow your business faster.

Seasonal Payment Program
Just like it sounds, this flexible plan allows you to structure a payment plan during months that are more in-line with months of your lighter revenue.
A Seasonal Payment Program allows you to match your monthly payment with the changing seasonal demand for your product. You can enjoy lower monthly payment for 2 months agreed upon in your lease agreement.
If you have an infrequent income stream, you can enjoy lower payments for two months to offset the months of your lower income.

Plan when you want to skip a payment for your needs.
A Skip Payment refers to certain months in your stream of payments where you do not owe a payment. Your business gets to “skip” a month or two depending on your pre-negotiated contract. This can apply to a business that might have some seasonality in high volume versus low volume months.
- Choose to skip payments during months agreed upon in your lease terms.
- Offset your more profitable months by preferring a lower monthly payment or none at all.
- Payments are equally distributed throughtout the year.
- Pay the same total annual payment over the course of the year.
