Posted by Rob Misheloff


Do you need to finance some equipment?

I bet you're annoyed with all the jargon that you see.

If you're on someone's website, or talking to a leasing professional...

... they assume you're a lawyer or accountant with all the geeky words they use.

Probably the one term we encounter the most people confused about is FMV lease buyout options.

It's almost like...

...some companies out there...

...want to keep their customers confused....  

That, my friends, is no good at all.

Today, let's decode some of the equipment leasing babblespeak into plain English.

Crane Financing: What are the Rates to Finance or Lease a Crane?

Posted by Rob Misheloff


Are you looking into crane financing?

Financing for a crane is a little bit different than a lot of other types of equipment.

Do you want to know why?

Cranes aren't exactly "cheap."

When we help customers look at financing for a crane, we find most cranes cost from $200,000 to just over $1 million or so.

That's enough money that the transaction becomes just a little more complex....

(Which means we'll need to do a little more than just check your credit and ask for a couple of bank statements...)

With that, let's look at what it takes to get financing for your crane purchase.

You'll see:

  • Daily payment lenders (who want you to pay off your equipment in 6 months)
  • Companies promoting "low payments"
  • Total B.S., like "5% rates..."

... but not one word about what you care about.

Kind of makes you want to have a beer (or four),no?
