We understand your equipment needs

At Melbourne Finance, finding solutions to help businesses get assets is one of our specialities. We’ve helped organisations acquire vehicles with personalised financial solutions and we have even financed dairy cows for an agribusiness. There is no challenge that we won’t help you with.

So what can you finance?

It goes without saying that every business needs to spend money on equipment, and some may need to supply vehicles. However, you should consider what options you have with equipment and vehicle finance before purchasing outright. At Melbourne Finance, we can help finance commercial vehicles, business cars, trailers and tractors, plant, machinery and equipment, agricultural equipment and computers and phone systems.

Why Finance Your Vehicles and Equipment?

Financing your business vehicle, machinery or equipment loans gives you the flexibility to meet the demands of your business without sacrificing funds. Equipment and vehicle finance in Melbourne can help preserve working capital and allow you to budget more accurately with regular repayments.

By financing your commercial car or equipment, there are also potential tax advantages and often the equipment loan is secured by the asset – this means you don’t have to put your house on the line.

Types of vehicle & equipment finance

Chattel Mortgage

A chattel mortgage is when a business owns the asset, but has taken out an equipment loan to pay it off. As you own this asset, you may be able to claim GST, interest expense and depreciation expenses.

A chattel mortgage is great for tradies who may need a commercial vehicle, such as a ute or trailer, to move their equipment from site to site.

Finance Lease

A finance lease is generally used for businesses considering a commercial car loan – the lender owns the asset and leases the asset to the business for an agreed term.

Generally, a finance lease is used for commercial vehicles or equipment with higher depreciation such as tractors or trucks.

Commercial Hire Purchase

A commercial hire purchase is where you hire an asset from a lender with the intent to own the vehicle after paying off the lender’s loan. With a commercial hire purchase, you may be able to claim GST and depreciation costs while paying off the asset. 

Generally, businesses consider a commercial hire purchase for agricultural equipment, construction equipment or commercial vehicles such as trucks and trailers.
