Loan and lease financing programs are available for both new and used construction equipment for construction applications all across Canada.
Because of the strength of the resale market for used equipment, and the long useful life for some of the heavy duty machinery, it’s possible to secure equipment financing with an asset age greater than 20 when the overall average for used equipment financing is under 10 years.
One of the benefits of construction equipment financing programs is the amount of leverage available to the business owner. In most cases, 100% financing of the equipment cost can be secured, allowing cash to be conserved for other purposes.
If you’ve just started an acquisition process, I recommend that you apply for credit right away and get pre-approved for a certain amount of capital for the particular type of equipment you’re after.
The pre-approval is almost as good as cash allowing you to bid more aggressively on new or used equipment knowing that the funds are going to be available for you to access if you’re bid or offer gets accepted.
And if you ever end up paying cash for an asset out of your cash reserves or line of credit, remember that you can refinance the purchase up to 6 months after the deal was finalized. Refinancing can be done through an equipment loan or a sale and lease back transaction through a leasing company.
Regardless of your situation or construction equipment financing needs, I suggest that you give us a call so that we can perform a quick assessment of your requirements and recommend the best options available.
