Business loans can be obtained for a variety of fundamental reasons, but each one comes with its own necessary precautions. When it comes to equipment financing, one of the key concerns is how important certain machinery is and what kind of payment plan you have. Obviously, specific equipment will be more crucial to certain businesses than others.
If the equipment in question is not an essential part of your business, for example, it might be worth waiting rather than entering a financing program to pay for it. When you can't delay acquiring new tools, there may not be a need to buy: the more economic option could be renting or leasing to avoid higher payments.
In a For Construction Pros article from 2013, Phillip Bruno of Marlin Leasing Corporation mentioned these as potential choices that should factor into a buyer's decision. Leases could also be more flexible based on the changes seen within a certain industry.
"If your business experiences seasonal fluctuations, or has a project or new line ramping up that requires equipment that will not generate revenue immediately or will only generate it seasonally, there are lease terms available that allow for these circumstances," he said. "Lower initial payments or deferred payments are among lease term options."
