3 Significant Benefits of getting your Service Truck Financed

24th November, 2021

Suppose your company has just won a mining contract, and you are looking to assemble an additional fleet of heavy-duty service trucks because your existing fleet is already deployed on another project. In that case, you’ll need to consider the best way to finance the additional equipment required.

Here’s where our “Truck Finance ” is available as a smart option to preserve working capital and business cash flow while factoring the repayments into the revenue calculations of the contract the new equipment will be servicing.

There are Finance companies and banks available today that can provide the needed funding and other financial solutions to help you with the acquisition of required capital equipment. 

Whether you operate your own business or work together as a partner or stakeholder, these equipment financing companies make it straightforward and easy without the traditional red tape involved with large corporate lenders.

So, here are some of the benefits of utilising finance solutions for your Service Truck purchases:  

  1. Preserve Your Working Capital 

Whether you’re a startup or an already established business, you know how important it is to preserve working capital to sustain your enterprise’s continual operation. This is what service truck financing allows you to do. Simply put, by making monthly payments towards your service truck loan, you will be able to pay for the service trucks and equipment required without drawing down from your company’s cash reserves.

Keeping up your working capital will help you maintain the solvency of your business by providing an uninterrupted flow of business operations. Working capital should be used for salaries, wages and other day-to-day commitments, which is essential for maintaining employees, increasing their efficiency, and enhancing your company’s overall productivity and profits. 

Preserving working capital will enable your company to make prompt payments to your suppliers and service providers, which will help create and maintain your company’s goodwill throughout the industry.  

Proper management of working capital is not only essential for your company’s fundamental financial health but is a hallmark of good business management to maintain a solid balance between growth, profitability and liquidity.  

  1. Align finance to work contracts

Another significant benefit of service truck finance is that the trucks’ loan or rental terms can be set up to match your existing work contracts. Plantman’s lending providers:

Ledge Finance 

Ledge Finance offers a range of different finance solutions, including: 

Ledge financing is particularly beneficial for people wanting to maintain equipment for the majority of its useful life. Financing leasing through Ledge gives you flexibility to ultimately buy the equipment outright, continue leasing or even sell to a third party at the end of the lease term.


Offers a Rent Now, Buy Later agreement. This lets you rent the equipment you need for a period of 12 months or more, with easy to manage, regular payments. At the end of the loan term, if your work contract is extended, you have the option of purchasing the equipment from us. 

Unlike other rental systems, Yellowgate allows you to use the previous rental payments you’ve made to contribute to the cost of equipment. So, there’s no more dead rent money if you decide you’d like to buy. 

The benefit to you as the customer is the fact you can get the equipment you need, fast. You don’t have to wait around for loan approval to finance an outright purchase. Simply align your rental period to your work contract, and you’ve got flexibility down the track. 

  1. Enjoy Capex Relief

When you opt for Financing a truck through financial companies, you can avail the comfort and advantage of “Capex Relief”. Capex relief, put in simpler terms means reduction or saving of capital expenditure of your company. The funds that are usually meant to acquire, upgrade, and maintain physical assets, such as property, buildings, technology or equipment, are conserved, improving your company’s balance sheet.

Since capital expenditure is attributed to the purchase of assets whose usefulness or value to your company exceeds one year, taking a truck loan from a finance company allows for special rental agreements that will enable you to keep this expense off the balance sheet. It will not add up as capital expenditure for your company.

These finance companies thereby will help you effortlessly expand your fleet of service trucks required for your business and provide a good service offering without hammering your balance sheet. 

Additionally, this enables you to better plan the capital expenditure for your company to take advantage of the ‘Capital Allowances Super-deduction’. 

Truck finance brokers or truck finance companies do not work for the banks, and they can help you find the right finance that suits your needs and enables you to lower your company’s capital expenditure. A finance broker company will help you with their guiding experts in the financial field. They can provide you with all the knowledge needed for your situation and recommend a loan that best suits your current circumstances. Not only will they do all the hard work of finding the right loan, but they also look after the loan application, produce documentation to speed up the approval processes. They’ll make all the necessary calls and then see it right through to the settlement of the loan and finally help you gain that ‘Capex Relief’ on your balance sheet!
