Commercial Vehicle Loans in Waco

A commercial vehicle loan is a financing solution used to buy vehicles for your business.

A commercial car loan saves your company’s valuable cash reserves. Steady monthly payments make it easy to afford that much-needed truck, car, or van. Just like a personal vehicle loan, you pay back the loan in regular installments of the principal amount . You’re also responsible for any accumulated interest over the length of the loan.

The average commercial auto loan term is about 5 years but can vary.. At TFNB, our local bankers can provide customized financial goals. Whether you want to pay off loans faster or reduce your monthly payments, we can customize a loan for you.

Equipment Loans in Waco

You can use equipment loans to buy business-related equipment. This includes new computers, refrigerators, video equipment, and more. Like commercial vehicle loans, equipment loans require periodic payments (including interest and principal) over a set number of months.

For example, if you open a food truck, you will need lots of kitchen equipment to get started. Let’s say the commercial deep fryer, stovetop, and refrigerator you need costs $25,000. If you apply for an equipment loan for 75% of the equipment’s cost, or $18,750, your out-of-pocket costs are only $6,250. An equipment loan helps get your venture up and running faster by distributing costs over time.

For a secured loan, the lender may need a lien on the equipment as collateral against your debt. After you pay the loan in full, you own the equipment free of any lien.

It’s important to note that equipment financing is not the same as equipment leasing. In a lease, you pay the owner of the equipment “rent” for use of the equipment over a length of time. At the end of a leasing term, you return the equipment to the owner, unless you negotiate a sale or lease extension. But with equipment loans, you own the equipment at the end of your term. It can be easier to qualify for a lease, but if equipment is vital to your business, buying it through a loan may be a better long-term financial decision.

How do I qualify for commercial loans?

We aim to help Waco’s small business community thrive by making loans more accessible to you. We may look at any of the following to determine what loan terms are best for you:
