Equipment Leasing:Obtaining the Best Rate

Every business wants to have a competitive lease rate. Factors that affect your lease rate include:

  • Credit quality
  • Size of the transaction
  • Asset quality, category, and remarket ability
  • How long the business has been established
  • Financial health of the business

Some equipment leasing firms have different asset preferences, some prefer small leases, some only do multi-million dollar leases, with their own funding and capital structures which dictate pricing and terms. We tell clients, as a general rule, they should expect the best pricing when they are established businesses, are profitable, and have positive cash flows with clean balance sheets and income statements.
