Which type of finance should be used to purchase new machines & equipment?
Both leasing and loans can be used to finance new machinery and equipment, and the best choice depends on your business's specific needs and financial situation. Leasing is an ideal choice if you want lower upfront costs and flexibility to upgrade equipment frequently. A loan, on the other hand, would be a better option if you plan to keep the equipment for a longer time and want to build equity in it.
Can you write off buying used equipment?
Yes, purchasing used equipment can often be written off as a business expense, allowing for substantial tax benefits. Under Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code, businesses may be able to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment purchased or financed during the tax year. Always consult with a tax advisor to understand how this could apply to your business.

Private Party Financing.
Private party financing (aka private party equipment financing or "user to user" equipment financing) is usually where a business is buying a piece of used equipment from someone other than a manufacturer or similar. For ease of understanding, think of one neighbor selling a vehicle to another neighbor. Except in this case, it's businesses and used equipment. Many banks and equipment financing companies shy away from financing private party equipment sales, but not Crest Capital – we finance private party deals all the time.
Demo Unit Financing.
Demo Units (sometimes called floor models or demo models) are exactly what they sound like – a piece of equipment used as a demonstration model. Financing demo units requires a fairly specialized type of equipment lender - one who specializes in funding “less than new” equipment and welcomes floor model financing / demo unit financing. Fortunately, Crest Capital has been providing financing for demonstration units for more than two decades.
Remanufactured Equipment Financing.
While there is no "official" designation, remanufacturing equipment usually means a fairly extensive rebuilding of a piece of equipment to be as close to original as possible. As such, there is a definite interest in buying remanufactured equipment (as it's often budget friendly), and a clear need for remanufactured equipment financing. Crest Capital is a specialist in financing remanufactured equipment, and helps companies of all sizes.
Pre-Owned Equipment Financing.
Pre-owned equipment financing is very similar to used equipment financing. Ok, you got us – it's the exact same thing. But then again, it's really not. For proof, all you need to do is visit your local vehicle dealer. Do you see the word "used" anywhere? You won't. So for many businesses, they will look for pre-owned equipment financing and pre-owned equipment leasing. And we want businesses to find one of the few lenders that can help them – Crest Capital.
Refurbished Equipment Financing.
Financing refurbished equipment is something that many companies are interested in, but often find hard to acquire. That’s because, by definition, refurbished equipment is not “brand new”, leading many lenders to shy away from offering refurbished equipment financing. But not Crest Capital – we happily provide companies with a refurbished equipment loan, with the great rates and friendly service we are known for.
Trade-In Equipment Financing.
Out with the old, and in with the new. That's what trading in is all about. But what happens to the old if it's still in good shape? Well, depending on the equipment, it's often resold, usually at a great price. This makes trade in equipment financing desirable for many companies. And Crest Capital has been a leader in financing traded in equipment for more than 25 years.
