Available financing options for car finance include;


Equipment loans are one of the most effective ways to get the transport equipment you need. Such loans can either be a secured loan or unsecured loan. A loan is secured when it comes with a requirement of security before you can get the loan. This means you have to present collateral, a property that is equivalent in value to the loan you are seeking. In the case of a default, the lender will take possession of the property you have used as collateral. On the other hand, an unsecured loan is one where all you have to do is present all the necessary documents for the loan, and the lender does not ask you for collateral before giving you the loan.


With a lease agreement, you have possession and use of the equipment for some time while you pay for the use within that period. It is ideal if your business doesn’t need the equipment for permanent use, such as when it is needed to execute a short term project. With this, you are essentially paying for the period during which you are using the equipment, and in most cases, it rarely exceeds a few years, and in some cases, you even have the option of buying the equipment when the lease expires. Getting a lease instead of buying can give you the freedom and flexibility when it comes to truck use. If you will be using the equipment for a short time, it is a logical decision for you to make. But in a situation where you are going to need the equipment on a more permanent basis, you should not go for a lease.

Hire Purchase

This is a form of finance you should consider if you need the equipment on a permanent basis but can’t afford to get a loan. Lenders and dealerships offer equipment. Since your equipment is for business purposes, you can easily use a hire purchase to acquire it. In the hire purchase form of financing, the lender buys and owns the equipment you want and gives it to you on lease. You are then expected to pay a stipulated amount monthly which is spread to cover the lease and the cost of buying the equipment. You are obligated to buy the equipment under this agreement, and once you complete the terms of the agreement, the equipment becomes yours.


Chattel Mortgage

Mortgage the equipment you are getting until you are able to pay off the loan. This form of finance lets you get the equipment you need while using the equipment itself as the collateral for the loan, which means it is a secured loan. Once you get equipment with a chattel mortgage, the vehicle becomes your property immediately. However, the financer will place a mortgage on it, making the equipment serve as collateral for the loan you have taken to buy it. With this kind of loan, you enjoy the benefit of a secured loan without needing to have a property that you will use as collateral. It is an ideal form of finance that lets you own the equipment you need without having a property as security, making it a win-win for you.

It is advisable that you should have money saved before looking for equipment finance. Such money will serve several purposes when getting finance. For example, it can be used to pay deposits in a situation where the lender requires that you pay deposits or where they don’t cover the whole cost of the equipment. Deposits are a good thing in many cases as it means the amount you will repay will be less than if the lender gives you 100% finance. The savings can also be used to cover the cost of insurance, license, installation, registration, etc., as the case may be.
