INTERESTED IN FINANCING?
Financing works well for many of our customers! It allows immediate equipment purchases versus months or years of fundraising efforts and waiting and saving. Other benefits of financing your equipment are:
- Keeps YOUR cash in the bank versus depleting your cash flow
- No need for Fundraising campaigns! Forget lengthy fundraising campaigns that may or may not raise all the needed funds.
- Immediate Purchase versus years of waiting to raise your funds.
- Attract New Members/Clients & Increase Revenue for your profit-based businesses such as daycares, campgrounds, apartments, neighborhood HOA’s, non-profit centers, etc.
- Churches & non-profits often see an increase in membership, after purchasing and installing new playground equipment. It’s an immediate draw for young children and their families!
- Immediate use of Equipment – Financing provides you with the equipment for an agreed upon monthly payment, so you’re able to pay as you use!
- Tax Benefits – You can deduct your monthly payment as an operating expense. Financing your park or playground equipment also helps you avoid the Alternative Minimum Tax by reducing AMT liability.
- Flexibility – Minimum down payment. Structure payments to fit your budget.
- 100% Cost Coverage – You can include “soft” costs such as space planning & design fees, shipping and installation right into the financing.
- Conservation of Capital – If your money isn’t tied up in equipment costs, you’re free to spend it on other items such as inventory, advertising or personnel.
- Easier Cash Flow Forecasting – Fixed monthly payments help you budget money into the future.
- Fixed Payments – You can lock-in payments now and avoid the risk of inflation in the future.
- Preserves Credit – Financing your park or playground equipment doesn’t tie up your line of credit. So you have more capital at your disposal when you need it!
- Longer Terms – Many banks only lend money short term – usually 12 to 36 months, while our in-house financing lets you extend your term up to 60 months.
- Quick approval – typically same day credit approval
