Equipment Leasing

One of the biggest challenges for small businesses is acquiring the equipment necessary to run their operation—without breaking the bank. Whether you're in the market for a new moving van or an MRI machine, SunTrust's equipment lease financing provides a cost-effective way to meet your company's needs.

Equipment leasing offers many advantages over outright purchases. SunTrust provides 100 percent financing on equipment leases. That allows you to preserve your working capital for other uses. Leasing also spares you the costs and headaches of maintaining—and eventually disposing of—older equipment. And it protects you from the risk that new technologies will render your equipment obsolete before you pay it off.

SunTrust provides lease financing for nearly every type of business equipment, including:

  • Cars, trucks and vans
  • Computers and other technology
  • Construction equipment and heavy machinery
  • Industrial machines and tools
  • Medical equipment
  • Office equipment, furniture and fixtures

To give your business maximum flexibility, we offer a wide variety of payment options and contract lengths, plus competitive pricing that can be fixed for the full lease term. A SunTrust small business financing specialist can help you determine whether an equipment lease or an outright purchase makes the most sense for you. If leasing is your best option, we'll provide a quick turnaround on your financing application and personal attention all through the process.
