Is an Equipment Loan right for me?
What types of equipment can I buy or lease with my funds?
The list is long — spanning vehicles, construction equipment, furniture and fixtures to technology like computers, phone systems, servers — even software.
Which equipment loan option is best for me?
There are multiple programs and loan types available for equipment. The best choice is often driven by the type of equipment you need. 1West specialists are happy to help you weigh and understand your options.
Why consider a loan instead of paying all at once?
Operating without key equipment often means compromising productivity, quality or both. Instead of waiting to save or paying large sums up-front, the right loan allows you to meet every opportunity and keep liquidity.
