So it’s come to the point where you need to look into financing heavy equipment, great! That means your company is growing.
But the process can be a bit confusing for those initially. Where do you even begin?
Financing Heavy Equipment: Getting Started
The first thing that you want to do is get a quote. Once you get a quote, you’ll then be able to get a better idea of what quality and quantity of equipment you will be able to set your goals toward. Now, going out to different financial institutions all around and allowing them to ding your credit won’t benefit you down the line. This will lower your score and add many unnecessary hard inquiries to your credit profile. Why is this bad? Well, excessive hard inquiries on your report are looked at as a negative factor by most lenders and will count against you in getting your approval, best rate, and terms.

Talk with a business funding adviser. Business funding advisors will be your guideline through the entire financing project.

Then, they will be able to create a budget for you, decide on your options, and talk you through what will work best for your business.
A Few Questions
Your funding adviser may ask you some questions so that they can begin to develop an effective plan for you. For example, you’ll want to know beforehand how long you plan to use the equipment because this will affect whether you need long-term financing or not. They’ll ask, of course, what type of equipment you need, and may ask to see your financial records.
Wrapping it Up
Working with your business funding adviser, you’ll secure equipment financing approval. Woohoo! You’re at the finish line. First, you’ll have to sign some contracts to make it official. Often, you can sign most of these documents online meaning you don’t even need to leave the office.
Once those contracts are signed, you can just sit back and relax. Your business funding advisor will work with the vendor you’ve chosen to buy your heavy equipment through. You get your needed equipment for the business to keep growing while they get paid.
