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 don’t have the dough, you don’t have the dough.

Then there is 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.

Wait, what? You’re missing the point. Using other people’s money is a time-honored way to buy a truck and to grow a business, too. You want their money because that money is an affordable way to acquire expensive equipment you are not otherwise prepared to buy.

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 folks, no. But if you’re a cash customer, what if you don’t have the extra $2,000? Financing opens up a world of possibility for your break/fix moments. And if you do it right, you’ll find a financing partner that is fast, simple and knows businesses like yours.
