Business Equipment & Vehicle Loan

One asset can make all the difference.

Business Equipment and Vehicle Loan 101

Borrow up to 100% of that vehicle price tag, or 80% to help cover the cost of new or used equipment or a used vehicle. The item you purchase will act as collateral on your loan, and you can choose a loan term between 60 and 84 months.

Make way for more open doors.

Whether it’s a delivery car or new tractor, machinery that helps you meet your customers’ needs has more value than paper can hold — it’s the lifeblood of your business. Don’t let the difference between where you are and where you’re going hold you back from getting it. With our Equipment and Vehicle Loan, you’ll be on the road to growth in no time.
