Equipment Leasing & Lending

Corporations across a range of industries take advantage of our customized leasing programs to finance equipment as varied as drilling rigs, aircraft, barges and rail cars. Whatever your needs, BB&T Equipment Finance will take the time to learn about your operations and create a program that best meets your objectives.

We can structure programs so that your lease payments are treated as operating expenses that are deductible for tax purposes. Our full spectrum of lease programs with flexible payment terms and tax structures can preserve your working capital and lines of credit; create a hedge against inflation by locking in equipment costs; offer 100 percent financing; transfer ownership of equipment; and help you avoid obsolescence. Operating nationwide, our typical transaction sizes range from $250,000 to more than $100 million.

Our specialized aviation group can customize financing options for corporate aircraft, whether you’re looking to purchase a new or pre-owned aircraft or need to refinance, monetize or complete a sale-leaseback of an existing aircraft.

We also bring 40 years of experience to equipment financing needs in a broad range of industry groups, including manufacturing; materials handling; construction; metalworking; medical equipment; medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks and trailers; office furniture, fixtures and equipment, including office technology; woodworking; mining equipment; oil & gas extraction; and transportation, including air, rail, maritime and trucking.
