What Is Equipment Financing?

Equipment financing is the act of borrowing capital to pay for new or used equipment through First Capital Business Finance. This enables business owners to acquire the necessary equipment without upfront expenses. Borrowing capital helps prevent cash-flow disruptions associated with using working capital. Instead of upfront payments, business owners can pay off their equipment gradually over time.

You could save thousands of dollars each year through borrowing. Additionally, equipment financing with First Capital Business Finance requires no collateral to be leveraged on behalf of the business owner. The equipment itself can serve as collateral, safeguarding your assets.

Whether you prefer the flexibility of leases, the structure of loans, or the convenience of lines of credit, we have solutions crafted to match your business goals. Each option comes with its own set of advantages, and our expert team is here to guide you through the nuances. Explore the pros and cons of leasing, the benefits of loans, and the versatility of lines of credit by talking to one of our agents.

Bad Credit Equipment Financing & Leasing vs. Other Payment Options

Financing or leasing your equipment purchase with First Capital Business is a strategic decision for businesses on any budget. Acquire the necessary equipment for your company and manage payments conveniently through monthly or quarterly installments over time.

Equipment Financing/Leasing vs. Credit Cards: Many small businesses and startups often have limited lines of credit. Opting for equipment financing through First Capital Business, instead of using a credit card, ensures that valuable lines of credit remain available for other essential expenses. This choice provides your business with more flexibility for future needs.

Equipment Financing/Leasing vs. Small Business Loans: Consider equipment financing as a cost-effective alternative to a traditional loan. Typically, the rates and terms in an equipment financing/leasing approval from First Capital Business are more favorable than those of a small business loan, thanks to the equipment acting as collateral.

Equipment Financing/Leasing vs. Paying Cash: Few companies have the working capital to make an upfront purchase of all required equipment. By choosing to finance your equipment purchase with First Capital Business, your company retains more available capital for future business opportunities.

At First Capital Business, our lease or loan programs usually involve no upfront costs, and deferred payment options are available. Apply now to discover how we can support your business!

Yes! We have a wide variety of programs that are specifically for startups!

Depending on the type of equipment, and dollar amount, transactions can fund in as little as 24 hours. Again, this will depend if you and the equipment qualifies.

Yes, we do offer financing for used equipment. Keep in mind there are different guidelines for all programs and it’ll also depend on if the seller of the equipment is a dealer or private party.

Typical turn-around times are 24 hours, or sometimes even quicker than that!

In very rare cases, it may take longer due to the time of the year and volume of applications we are working on.

We offer a wide variety of financing programs for business owners. The most popular is our equipment financing programs: Equipment Leasing & Equipment Finance Agreements. We also offer Factoring (also known as “accounts receivable financing”) and working capital loans.

The majority of our programs are called “Application Only”, and that means no proof of income is necessary. Depending on the credit, time in business, type of equipment, industry, and the amount you’re seeking to finance we may need to see income. Proof of income can be as simple as your last three months’ bank statements.

One of the greatest advantages with leasing equipment, is the ability to obtain the necessary equipment with little to no money down.

It allows the business owner to preserve their cash, and to obtain new or used equipment by making monthly payments anywhere from 12 to 72 months.


We have a wide variety of programs that is suited for business owners who have challenging credit. Like any other program, there are guidelines and there are too many variables to go into it here. The best is to have a conversation with one of our advisors to see what you may qualify for.

If the equipment is essential for your business, we can finance it! For example, if you own a medical practice, we wouldn’t be able to finance a bulldozer for that type of business. But we can finance commercial vehicles, restaurant equipment, medical equipment, software, yellow iron, just about anything! There are some instances where we wouldn’t be able to finance a specific type of piece of equipment, but it’s always best to call and speak to one of our advisors first.

Our finance rates are very competitive within our industry, and we’ll always strive to find the best suited program with the best terms.

The following are the type of leases First Capital Business Finance offers:

  • Equipment Finance Agreement (EFA)
  • Fair Market Value (FMV)
  • 10-20% Purchase Option
  • Dollar buyout ($1 out)
  • Term Residual (TR)
  • Sale-Leaseback (SLB)

A lease is a contractual arrangement where one person/business (lessee), the lender/owner(lessor), owns an asset and provides possession and use of the asset to another person, the lessee, for a fixed term.

The lessor is the legal owner of the asset/equipment and the lessee has the legal right to use the asset/equipment in exchange for rental payments.

An equipment finance agreement is an alternative to the traditional lease, and it is very similar to a loan.

  • Fixed monthly payments
  • Terms ranging from 12 to 72 months

The EFA terms and conditions is similar to a lease, but it is not a lease.

At the conclusion of the equipment finance agreement, you have no future financial obligations to the lender.

Unlike a lease, an EFA will not have a buyout at the end of the term; whereas, with a lease, there will usually be a buyout to own the equipment.
