We recently started a series of podcast shorts to highlight helpful information on commercial lending that our customers may find beneficial. While we have posted each separately, we wanted to group some of the episodes together from time-to-time to make them easier to find and digest – all in one place. Should you have any questions the subject matter covered in these five episodes, don’t hesitate to reach out. We want to keep commercial lending… Uncomplicated. Enjoy!

What you need to know about Equipment Financing & Leasing in Kansas City (Missouri and Kansas)

It is really quite common for quality and growing organizations to enjoin banks and other professional commercial lending organizations to assist with capital for:

  • Equipment Financing
  • Equipment Leasing
  • Commercial Vehicle Leasing & Financing
  • General Business Lending
  • Working Capital Funding
  • Account Receivable Lending

There are a number of reasons this may be the case. Convenience & Diversification, perhaps, are at the top of the list. Convenience is delivered in various forms: ease of acquisition (think about buying a copy machine or commercial vehicle), affordable payments and/or simply allowing the equipment to pay for itself from the revenue or savings that it generates.

Summer is upon us… We know because we start perspiring when we THINK about leaving the house each morning. All the same, the sweltering heat has had me thinking about my old camping days and how summer truly began at scout camp with that opening night campfire at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation. I had my fair share of duties over the years, but a time or two, I was a designated Firebuilder. Tinder and kindling were easy enough to find, but after years of trying to get it right, I can appreciate a good log to keep me from having to gather and stack throughout the night.

Maybe you’re a start-up looking to open up your first office, or an established company opening up a new branch. Maybe you’re just looking to do some office renovations to switch things up? (We feel you on that one. We just finished our own office renovations a short while ago.) Should be easy, right? Just a couple chairs here, a desk over there… Need to get some printers for the corner office over there. Before you know it, these small ticket items have combined to become quite the beast when you got around to adding the cost up. Is this going to affect the operation of your business moving forward? You may be able to pay in cash, but this can put strain on your working capital as your looking to continue growing. Many business owners don’t consider office equipment financing and leasing precisely because, as described above, each item individually feels small compared to some of the bigger, more expensive pieces of equipment you may be operating each day. Rest assured, there are options for you as you plan this next big step in your business.

We’ll get asked from time to time if we offer used equipment financing and leasing. The short answer: YES! Used equipment can be a great way to get the equipment you need for a fraction of the cost of the newest equipment out right now. While there are times when new equipment can be an important part of your business, we know some projects can be done just as efficiently with pre-owned equipment. Being named as one of the best equipment financing companies for start-ups, we know that many newer companies get great starts with used equipment so they can allocate their capital to other important areas as they get their footing in their industries. With that being said, let’s dive into the specifics of where we can help out.
