Equipment Loans Victoria 2019

Like much of British Columbia, the provincial capital of Victoria is a hotbed for tourist activity. What some people might not know is that the city is also home to a booming technology industry that’s responsible for over $3.15 billion dollars in revenue every year. However, for those kinds of businesses to thrive, they must have proper tools and machinery at their disposal and, of course, enough funding to lease or purchase them.

That’s where an equipment loan can help because good hardware doesn’t always come cheap. If you’re located in Victoria and your business is looking for the right equipment financing, we have the information you need.

You should also watch out for predatory small business lenders.

Benefits and Business Expansion

For business owners that require expensive or specialized tools and machinery, equipment financing can provide you with:

  • The ability to get rid of unreliable equipment and upgrade to new pieces
  • An easier time leasing or purchasing the latest heavy machinery and vehicles, which are typically some of the costliest items of all
  • The chance to lease or purchase multiple equipment pieces, and use them to increase business productivity
  • Flexible repayment plans that will allow you to budget efficiently
  • The opportunity to work with a lender that actually understands your industry

Asset-Based Financing

Did you know that there’s another type of financing that you can secure that also involves equipment? Although instead of borrowing to lease or purchase equipment, you’ll be using the pieces you already own to borrow. This is known as asset-based financing and is a great way of getting approved for extra business funding.

When you own a machine, vehicle, or another piece of equipment that has some residual value when appraised, you can use it as collateral, thereby providing your lender with some security. In exchange, they can typically offer you a larger loan amount. Since they’ll be taking less of a risk if they have something to sell in the event of non-payment, you should also be eligible for a lower interest rate.

With that extra financing in your pocket, there are plenty of good things you can do for your Victoria business, such as:

  • Taking on and paying additional staff
  • Investing in marketing strategies and advertisements
  • Updating your workspace or moving to a new one entirely
  • Repairing, fueling, and insuring any company vehicles
  • Paying your business license, property taxes, and other related costs

Here’s how to use assets to secure funding for your business.

Industries Where Equipment is Necessary

While there are still plenty of businesses out there that can get by with minimal financing, tools, and tech involved, there are even more where that is not a possibility. Whether you’re able to afford used or new equipment, you’ll definitely need a lot of it if you work in the realm of:

  • Restaurants, bars, and other service industries
  • Factories, warehouses, or other shipping related companies
  • Law firms, game testing, or other office-based environments
  • Farming, livestock, or other agricultural jobs
  • Motels, vacation rentals, or other hospitality suppliers

Equipment Financing For All Your Needs

Always remember, even the smallest piece of technology can still cost you hundreds of dollars, especially if you get it brand new. That goes double or more if you’re planning to expand your business and increase productivity with multiple units, which is common for any of the industries listed above. For instance:

The Service Industry may require:

  • Cashier units and card readers
  • Ovens, coffee makers, and other kitchen appliances
  • Eye-washers, fire extinguishers, and other emergency safety gear

Shipping Related Companies may require:

  • Trucks, forklifts, and other vehicles
  • Assembly lines, shelving units, and other warehouse equipment
  • Proper lighting and ventilation

Office-Based Environments may require:

  • Computers, printers, and other technology
  • Desks, chairs, and other furniture
  • Water coolers, refrigerators, and other employee comforts

Agricultural Jobs may require:

  • Tractors, hay balers, and other farming equipment
  • Irrigation and vegetable growing systems
  • Fencing, feeders, and other livestock necessities

Hospitality Suppliers may require:

  • Televisions, jacuzzis, and other patron comforts
  • Internet routers and digital cable boxes
  • Vacuums, steam cleaners, and other sanitation devices
