Equipment Finance from $5 p/m Australasia News
When you need to upgrade your equipment but lack the CapEx budget, there are many finance options available.

You can have full access to the equipment you need without the upfront cost either on an Operating Lease (giving you ultimate flexibility at the end of the contract) or on a Secured Loan (giving you full ownership of the equipment and potential depreciation benefits).

Take advantage of Classic Funding Group’s EOFY promotion. Get the equipment you need now, pay only $5 per month for the first three months, and the remainder of the loan amount over the remaining loan term, and best of all, you may not need to provide financials.

Get in touch with Classic Funding Group on 1300780895 for more information. [more]
