Have you ever needed equipment – badly – but held off because of budget concerns? It happens to most businesses. Sometimes you have the need and simply don’t have the money. No matter how much you might want the equipment and see value in it, if you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it.

Then there’s the break/fix need. Businesses are faced with being forced to make decisions they might not make if they had more time and leaning on financial resources they didn’t expect to lean on. Resources they really can’t afford to lean on.

Is there a better way to acquire the equipment you desperately need but can’t afford?

When was the last time you dropped $48,000 in cash on a new truck? For most of you, never. You can’t afford that, and if you had to wait on that kind of savings to invest in a new truck, you’d never have a new truck.

So why don’t more businesses think proactively about equipment financing? Because financing seems hard. Because financing seems to require too much time.

Using other people’s money isn’t just for buying trucks. It’s one of the leading ways to grow a business by affordably acquiring expensive equipment you are not otherwise prepared to buy. And it doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming.

Think of your truck. Does it really matter if the truck sticker price is $48,000 or $50,000, as long as the monthly payment is where you need it to be? For most people, no.

But if you’re a cash customer, what if you don’t have the extra $2,000? Financing opens up a world of possibilities for your break/fix moments. And if you do it right, you’ll find a financing partner that offers a fast, simple process and knows businesses like yours.
