Consider Your Trucking Business’ Expenses

Your business will incur two types of expenses, initial (non-recurring) and continuous (operating). Once your business is up and running, you will always need enough capital on hand to pay for employee salaries, fuel, rent and inventory, to name a few. Additionally, you must consider the cost of acquiring equipment outside of your actual truck. This includes things like office furniture, computers, phones and printers. As you can see, there are quite a few expenses that come with owning and operating a business that depends on a reliable commercial truck.

Truck Financing 101

One of the most common questions that trucking business owners ask themselves is, “should I buy or finance my truck?” There is no right or wrong answer to this question; it is a personal choice based on the business’ individual trucking equipment needs and financial situation. Purchasing your truck with cash requires a significant up-front payment, and this can dilute your business’ savings. Here are some of the key benefits of truck financing and truck equipment leasing:

Allows for 100% Financing
Prevents Truck “Obsolescence”
Flexibility for Truck Upgrade
Budget Saving Payment Plans
Preserve Cash flow and Credit Lines
Simple One-Page Credit Application
Tax Advantages
