Types of Financing

Our Team will help you determine which type of financing is best for your situation.
We will discuss the pro and cons for each solution so we can make an informed decision.

CAPITAL LEASE: A capital lease is an operating expense, which reduces taxes. It allows you to use the equipment over a set term. At the end of the term, you own the asset for a nominal fee. You may resell it at that point and you can also upgrade equipment at any time during the term.

CONDITIONAL SALES CONTRACT: A Loan helps you finance the total cost of the equipment. You own the equipment and your payments cover interest on the loan and reduce the loans principle. You claim tax deductions for the interest paid and on the annual amortization of the equipment.

OPERATING LEASES: An operating lease is a rental agreement giving you the right to use the equipment without ownership. This is an off balance structure and several options can be offered once you reach end of term.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS: Once we understand your situation, we can develop a custom solution tailored to your needs.

A LOWER COST UPFRONT COULD COST YOU THOUSANDS OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

So, you’re shopping for a trailer and you found one that costs $300 dollars less. Sounds like a good deal, right? Not so fast: that decision could cost you $10,000 dollars over the lifecycle of your trailer. In fact, it’s highly likely that within the first year of ownership, you will spend 2 to 3 times more than what you saved on the initial cost of the trailer.

Why? Choosing a lower quality trailer means you’ll be spending more on maintenance and repairs when things go wrong. It also means less time on the road – eating into your profits. Click to see how Wabash trailers are designed to keep you on the road and save you money in the long run.
