Service and utility vehicles are used by companies across many different industries. From a tree service or utility bucket truck to a garbage truck to a dairy, water, or propane/gas truck, the shapes, sizes, and configurations are almost limitless.
Whichever service and utility vehicle you need, Crest Capital’s financing can get you on the road quickly. Besides low rates and fast approvals, we also have more than 30-years of experience financing nearly every type of service and utility vehicle imaginable:
Flatbed tow trucks, hook and chain tow trucks, integrated tow trucks, and wheel lift tow trucks are “the big four” of tow truck types. They all have different advantages so it is not uncommon to see towing companies have more than one type.
Getting a worker up high safely is necessary for many industries, the most common being tree trimming, utility, and cable companies. Bucket Trucks (sometimes called Boom Trucks) can be quite diverse, with different height capabilities and hydraulic outriggers / stabilizing legs.
While many utility and/or cable companies use the above-mentioned bucket trucks, they may have them configured differently, with options to carry large amounts of wire and cable, and various gear needed in the field.
There are many types of garbage trucks: front loader, side loader, rear loader, and roll off garbage trucks to name a few. Besides the compacting, lift, and emptying capabilities, they can have many other options, like hydraulic grab arms that allow one worker to handle all tasks from the driver’s seat. Certain refuse trucks may be specialized for liquids or other materials too.
Food grade trucks and tankers of all sizes are widely used to transport water, dairy, and other liquids used in the food and beverage industry (there are even tankers full of vegetable oil, vinegar, corn syrup, and more). If you are wondering where concrete and cement trucks are, they could be here but we chose to include them on the Specialized Vehicles page.
Transporting fuels, chemicals, and other materials requires special tankers designed for the specific material it is carrying. They can be insulated or not, pressurized or not, and even have several chambers for multiple loads. They range in size from the big tanker trucks delivering fuel to gas stations to smaller vehicles that deliver propane or fuel oil to homeowners.
Septic trucks are specifically made to do the opposite of a delivery – instead, they visit homes and businesses and pump out the septic tank and haul it away. Because of this, they are sometimes called vacuum trucks. It’s a dirty job but somebody has to do it!
The preceding should give a good idea of the breadth of the service and utility vehicles category. As with all vehicle categories, there is some overlap. Regardless of whether you find the new or used business vehicle you want to finance on this page or another (or even if you don’t find it on any page), chances are Crest Capital is willing to consider financing it.
There are many important advantages to financing and/or leasing new or used service and utility vehicles with Crest Capital.
Financing a service and utility vehicle can markedly improve your cash flow. You lock in at a fixed monthly payment, and deploy the vehicle in the field, earning revenue from day one. This allows you to “out-earn” the payment immediately, month after month.
Service and utility vehicles are primarily business-use vehicles, meaning you can take advantage of generous business tax deductions like Section 179, Bonus Depreciation, or (if leasing) deduction of lease payments.
When you finance a service and utility vehicle, sticker shock is greatly minimized. Low fixed monthly payments mean you can get the make and model you truly want, complete with all the options you require. You won’t be limited by your bank account balance.
Crest Capital is one of the only lenders who welcomes financing or leasing a used / preowned service and utility vehicle. In many cases, age does not matter, so if you find the perfect service and utility vehicle that suits your needs, go after it – we’ll handle the financing.
With Crest Capital’s flexible financing, you can buy your service and utility vehicle from virtually anyone – dealer or private seller.
Service and utility vehicles can have numerous customization options. And Crest Capital can finance the exact vehicle you need, complete with dealer-installed or aftermarket options. You can sometimes borrow more than the base sticker price and get the options you need added onto the vehicle and into your payment.

You’ll get a great rate, and lock into it. This means your payment will not change during the loan or lease term.
Crest Capital forgoes blanket liens, minimum bank balances, and other restrictive covenants. We believe you should be left alone to run your business as you see fit, without constraints on your finances or assets.
Our motto is “Nobody Waits for Crest Capital”. We can approve most service and utility vehicle loans or leases in several hours.
The rate for financing a service and utility vehicle will vary based on several factors: borrower credit profile, loan term, the type of loan or lease, and others. That said, Crest Capital’s rates are very competitive with typical bank rates. However, a big advantage is our rates are fixed, allowing you to lock-in to a payment that does not change. Plus, there are no typical bank covenants like blanket liens and similar.
Yes, your new (or used) service and utility vehicle will be financed, titled, and insured in your company name. This offers many advantages, like separation of business and personal expenses, better commercial policy insurance coverage, and significant tax advantages as well.
By their very nature, service and utility vehicles are designed and built for a specific purpose (typically the service your company performs). Adding a new/used one to your fleet increases your service level and revenue potential.
Crest Capital offers several lease and loan types for service and utility vehicles, as well as varying term lengths to meet your monthly payment requirements.
For financing a service and utility vehicle, a Titled Finance Agreement (TVA) is common. It’s a standard fixed-rate term loan that usually offers a 36-to-72-month term range. With a TVA, your company owns the vehicle, allowing for generous tax deductions and depreciation.
While not as common, some larger companies prefer a TRAC lease. This keeps the vehicle off your company’s balance sheet (no ownership). This removes any depreciation deductions, but it does allow for the straight deduction of the lease payments.
Besides the TVA and TRAC lease, Crest Capital offers other business vehicle lease and loan agreements that can satisfy any requirement.
