Helping you purchase new or used heavy machinery

Excavators can be a fantastic investment for a company as they generally hold their value well, and have a typical life-span of between 7,000 to 10,000 operating hours providing it’s been well looked after and maintained.

However, not every business can afford to buy new. A second-hand, 0.8 tonne micro digger can typically be picked up from as little as £7,500 (ex VAT), whereas a new version of the same model might cost around £16,500 (ex VAT). Some manufacturers only offer finance on new models which can cause a problem for prospective buyers. Thankfully, at Union Business Finance we can help finance both new and second-hand excavators.

Funding options
