Equipment Leasing and Financing

Over 80% of Fortune 500 companies lease equipment despite their strong cash positions. Why? Because, on average, a company earns about 15% on every dollar of working capital retained in the business – so, while cash should be used to increase sales, equipment is best acquired through leasing. A lease enables you to pay for equipment with the profits or savings that it generates. Remember, it’s the use of the equipment – not the ownership – that generates profits!

At Mechanics Bank, we believe that leasing is an important business strategy for any size company. We specialize in helping you to afford the latest in equipment by providing flexible terms to help accommodate any budget. We also believe that the relationship doesn’t stop with the funding of the lease. Our helpful and friendly leasing representatives are here to answer any questions that you may have and walk you through the solution, every step of the way.
