3 Best Auto Repair Equipment Financing and Loans

How would you open your own mechanic shop?

So you want to open your own mechanic or auto body shop. Before using your personal savings to invest in it, consider the following options:

  1. Equipment Financing: This is a loan specifically designed for purchasing equipment. The lender provides funds to buy the equipment, and the borrower repays the loan over time with interest. Equipment financing can be a good option for those who need to purchase high-cost equipment.

  2. Lease-to-Own: This is a rental agreement in which the borrower rents the equipment and makes payments over a fixed period of time. At the end of the lease, the borrower has the option to purchase the equipment for a pre-determined price.

  3. SBA Loan: The Small Business Administration offers loans to small businesses, including auto body shops, for a variety of purposes, including purchasing equipment. SBA loans typically have lower interest rates and longer repayment terms than traditional bank loans.

  4. Credit Cards: Some business credit cards offer rewards and financing options for equipment purchases. However, credit card interest rates can be high, so it’s important to compare options and read the fine print.

  5. Personal Savings: Some mechanics choose to finance equipment purchases with personal savings. While this option can save on interest, it may not be feasible for larger purchases or if personal savings are needed for other expenses.

Before deciding on a financing option, it’s important to consider the cost of the equipment, interest rates, repayment terms, and any associated fees. It’s also a good idea to compare options and shop around for the best deal.


Benefits of Business Loans

Access to capital: With a loan, auto shops can obtain the funding they need to cover expenses and invest in growth opportunities. This access to capital can be crucial for businesses that are just starting out or that are looking to expand.

Improved cash flow: Loans can also help businesses maintain positive cash flow by providing the capital necessary to cover expenses during slower months or when unexpected expenses arise. With a loan, businesses can avoid dipping into their own capital or relying on other forms of financing that may come with higher interest rates.

Lower interest rates: Business loans can provide access to capital at a lower interest rate than other forms of financing, such as credit cards or lines of credit. This can save businesses a significant amount of money in interest payments over time.

Flexible repayment terms: Business loans typically offer a range of repayment terms, including fixed or variable rates, and can be structured to fit the needs of the business. This flexibility can help businesses manage their cash flow and avoid defaulting on their loans.

Increased credit score: Making on-time payments on a business loan can improve a business’s credit score, making it easier to access financing in the future. This can help businesses obtain larger loans with lower interest rates, as well as other forms of financing, such as lines of credit.

I have a small tree business in the Central Florida area and have tried multiple avenues of financing to get the equipment we need to work more efficiently and safely. Taylor and Wayne Mosley offered to help us with the situation. They took the time to look at our business and find a way for us to get the equipment we needed. They did their best to make the process painless and seamless and now my company is doing so much better since we have the needed equipment. Thank you general financial I will refer you to anyone who needs equipment funding.

Worked with Taylor on a equipment deal. Didn’t have the best credit score and knew it was going to be tough but Taylor dug dug till he found a deal that’d work for us. If he says he’ll get it done be patient and polite and he’ll work hard with you. When it’s tough most people will give in and tell you to move on not Taylor. Definitely would recommend this company to anyone. Thanks again Taylor for your hard work and the hours you put in means a lot to us.
