Equipment is one of your biggest investments, but you need it to generate revenue.  If buying a piece of equipment or machinery just isn't possible, we offer a leasing option through CU Lease, a Credit Union-owned leasing company. Leasing allows you to retain your capital and still get the equipment you need to keep your operation running. 

Some of the benefits of leasing equipment include:

  • less up-front cost than a loan down payment
  • fixed payments with terms between two and five years
  • repayment can be tied to your seasonal cash flow
