Why Consider Financing Used Warehouse Shelving?

If you are looking to purchase used warehouse shelving but don’t have the initial outlay, then financing your used warehouse shelving could be an option for you.

  1. Cash Flow: Financing allows you to spread out the cost over time, keeping your cash flow intact so you can utilise for other business requirements.
  2. Tax Benefits: Payments are 100% tax deductible which makes leasing a highly cost effective way of acquiring the equipment you need.
  3. Flexibility: Various financing plans can be tailored to fit your budget and financial situation.
  4. Easy to budget and manage– Equipment finance in most of its forms gives you predictable payments so you can spread the cost over time. That means that managing cashflow is that little bit simpler, and you can focus on running the business

1.Equipment Finance

    • Overview: Specialised loans designed for purchasing equipment, including warehouse shelving.
    • Benefits: Often easier to qualify for than traditional loans; the equipment itself usually serves as collateral.
    • Considerations: Interest rates may be higher than traditional loans; the financing amount is limited to the value of the equipment.
    • Overview: Instead of purchasing, lease the shelving for a set period with regular payments.
    • Benefits: Lower upfront costs; flexible terms; the ability to upgrade the racking or shelving at the end of the lease.
    • Considerations: You do not own the equipment; long-term leasing can be more expensive than purchasing outright.

3. Vendor Financing

    • Overview: Some shelving suppliers offer their own financing options.
    • Benefits: Convenient; sometimes offers promotional interest rates or deferred payments.
    • Considerations: Financing terms may be less favorable than bank loans; limited to specific vendors.

Choosing the Right Financing Option

When deciding which financing option is best for you, consider the following factors:

  • Budget: Assess your monthly cash flow to determine how much you can afford in repayments.
  • Creditworthiness: Your credit score will significantly impact your loan terms and interest rates.
  • Repayment Terms: Consider how long you want to be making payments and the total interest cost.
  • Ownership: Decide whether you want to own the shelving outright or if leasing is more advantageous.
  • Flexibility: Look for options that allow flexibility in payments or upgrades.

By understanding and exploring the various financing options available, you can make a strategic decision that aligns with your business needs and financial health.
