How to get financing for your shredding truck business

Financing for start-up businesses can often be difficult, especially if the lender is unfamiliar with the industry or equipment that they are financing. Fortunately there are lenders that are comfortable funding credit worthy startups in the document destruction industry. The reason for this is quite simple: the failure rate is extremely low and the residual equipment value is extremely high, which mitigates the risk for the lender.

In most cases, start-ups are required to make a 20% down payment to the value of the equipment and the loan term is typically five years. In every case, the borrower has the ability to negotiate term, rate and conditions of the loan.
