Commercial Truck Financing
Commercial Truck Financing is often a lot more complicated than financing a car or motor bike. With a large investment it’s important to get the best balance to suit your situation.
At Linx Australia Group we have work with business owners to help them obtain the assets that their business requires.
With owners requiring specialised trucks including small tippers, B doubles or even a large fleet, every situation is different. And so we find solutions to best suit your cash flow and business growth.
Do you qualify for commercial truck financing?
When applying for a traditional business loan there are factors that need to be taken into account. Some of these include personal credit score, the time you’ve been in business and the revenue of your business. However, applying for commercial truck finance is different as the lender’s risk is minimised as the truck is an asset. This means it can act as collateral for the loan.
A stronger financial position will allow you to finance 100% of the value of the truck for lower interest rates. Whereas a weaker one may require you to put more of a deposit down with slightly higher interest rates.
Commercial Truck Loan or Lease?
Commercial truck financing can be done via a lease or a loan. Which one is best for you depends on your circumstances. With a loan you make your repayments and once all is paid you will own your truck outright. This makes it similar to other forms of loans.
An operating lease allows you to rent the truck for a lower monthly payment than if you were to take a loan on the truck. However at the end of the term of the lease you won’t own the truck. You can purchase it for the going market rate. This option is a good option for business owners needing to keep their cash flow in control. Also you can easily upgrade the truck and take a new lease at the end of the lease.
A finance lease (also known as a capital lease) allows you to make monthly payments towards your truck. At the end you are able to own it for a nominal sum (such as $1). This is more like a loan but is called a lease for taxation purposes.
