Equipment Leasing

Why Take Advantage of Equipment Leasing?

By having the right equipment, you can significantly increase your sales, your scope and the services you’re able to offer customers. The equipment you use also reflects your organization and the sense of quality and professionalism you provide, which can attract more new customers to your business. It’s also more sustainable than purchasing equipment outright, as rapidly evolving technology could considerably devalue your investment in a matter of just a few years.

Equipment leasing terms can be quite flexible, with most running between 24 and 60 months. You also have buyout options and can add equipment to your lease at any time, simply adding to your monthly payments without having to readjust your lease terms.

In addition, when compared to the average business loan, equipment leasing provides the following benefits:

  • No down payment, with the option to purchase the equipment at the end of the lease
  • Competitive fixed pricing and terms to fit your needs and business cycle
  • Tax free loan payments if supplier/equipment vendor is not required to collect tax
  • Tax-exempt leases for municipalities and other qualified government entities
  • Leasing professionals with an average of 20 years of experience
  • Award winning customer service
  • Customized leases and loans from $10,000 to $2 million

How does equipment leasing work?

You may be more familiar with the word “lease” from things like car and apartment leases. Equipment leasing is a similar concept, but instead of a car or apartment, it’s a piece of equipment for your business.

With an equipment lease, you make monthly payments on the equipment. Once you've reached the end of the initial agreement, you have the option to renew or terminate the lease. In some cases, you may have the option to purchase the equipment you’ve been leasing for its market value.

Benefits of Equipment Leasing

Low Monthly Costs

An equipment lease allows you to rent a piece of equipment that you can't afford to buy right on the spot. Often, lenders won’t require any upfront payments, and the monthly rate is usually lower than what you would see compared to that of a business line of credit or loan.

Updated Technology

As we mentioned earlier, if you're in a field with evolving equipment or equipment that has a short lifespan, then an equipment loan is not the best option. It would be wiser to go with a shorter-term commitment like equipment leasing. 

Cash Flow

As a business owner, you probably want access to as much working capital as possible. With a lease, you won’t need to be making big cash payments. This is convenient for business owners to save and allocate this capital to other expenses.

Equipment Leasing vs. Equipment Financing

With equipment leasing, you make monthly payments for the ability to use the equipment for a limited amount of time. This set amount of time makes leasing a more cost-effective option for equipment that you only need to borrow temporarily. Equipment leasing is more ideal for businesses who deal with technology that is consistently evolving. Equipment financing is better suited for things that your business needs for an ongoing and extensive amount of time.

The Bottom Line

Equipment leasing can be a valuable tool for acquiring the equipment necessary to help your business function and succeed. It’s a flexible, accessible financing option with a variety of benefits.

Crestmont Capital provides a variety of equipment leasing agreements that suit many business equipment needs.
