Alternative Financing: Will your lender buy in to alternative fuel?

February 2, 2018 by John Smith

MONTREAL, QC — Trucks that run on alternative fuels promise to be easier on the environment, but the equipment itself can be tougher on a capital budget. Consider natural gas.

IN PRINT — Financial Planning: Structure a lease that’s right for you

Want a trouble-free rental or lease? It’s in the details

September 30, 2016 by Dave Nesseth

Every piece of equipment comes at a price. Look no further than your accounts -payable department or the bank account for proof. But decisions around renting, leasing or financing involve far more than payment values alone.
Those who work with unique equipment spec’s or hold onto trucks and trailers for extended periods of time are prime candidates for purchase financing. Every year of service after an asset has fully depreciated is a bonus. Leasing tends to be the strategy of choice for those with shorter trade-in cycles or other plans for business capital. Then there are the rentals to address seasonal or short-term surges in freight volumes, or even temporary storage.
