Talk to Rangewell – the business finance experts

Making funding decisions for the science sector demands lenders with specialist knowledge. We can search the entire market to find the most appropriate lenders - and the business funding you need for your laboratory business

Having cutting-edge equipment is the key to running a successful lab: funding is the key to making sure you have the equipment you need.

New technologies are making more things possible in your lab. Embracing automation and robotics are key to increasing your throughput, efficiency, accuracy and profitability.

But it means that your traditional equipment can no longer answer all the demands you place on it.

Funding the ever-changing needs of your laboratory

Of course, this new equipment means new costs for your laboratory. Buying state of the art equipment is not only costly, it runs the risk of being locked into technology that will probably become obsolete in a surprisingly short time.

At Rangewell, we believe that Asset Finance provides the most cost-effective ways to provide cutting-edge lab equipment - and let you update your lab whenever new technologies come along.

Asset Finance includes solutions to let you buy outright or lease items of all kinds. Loans or Leases are secured on the asset or equipment itself, reducing the costs to you and avoiding the need to put up any other assets such as your home as security.

Hire Purchase

With Hire Purchase, you effectively hire the equipment that you use until you’ve paid enough to purchase it.

You’ll normally pay a deposit, plus fixed monthly repayments, which can last for up to 60 months. When you’ve made all the repayments, your lab will own the equipment outright. This can be ideal for durable items that will not go out of date, and which you will want for the long-term.

Lease Finance

Leasing gives you flexibility. You can regularly update equipment to ensure you always work with cutting edge technology. In some leasing arrangements, you have the option to own the asset at the end of the term, upgrade it, or simply give it back.

You can also decide whether you want maintenance and insurance to be included, and whether you need the item for its whole working life or a shorter, agreed period.

With leasing, you may never own the equipment, which means you need never be held back by outdated techniques, or have valuable space taken up in your lab by instruments you no longer need.

Why you need Rangewell to find finance for your lab

Find Funding

Helping you build your profits

Reduce or eliminate capital costs

Asset finance spreads the cost of your equipment over months or years. Some types of asset funding remove the need for upfront capital expenditure altogether.

Repayments that work with your operating budget

Asset finance is secured on the assets themselves, reducing interest costs and helping your repayments fit your monthly budget.

Funding scaled to your needs

Asset finance can fund equipment at all levels, from individual items to complete purpose-built laboratory installations.

Reducing your risk

Asset funding is secured on the assets themselves. If you found the repayments on equipment became a problem, the lender could simply repossess the equipment.

Keep working with cutting-edge equipment

Asset funding includes leasing solutions that will let you update your equipment whenever you need to. It means you can always work with the latest, most accurate technology.

Specialist lending for the scientific community

Some asset funding providers specialise in providing solutions for the scientific community. At Rangewell, we can help you find these specialist lenders, helping you cut costs and simplifying applications.

Equipment finance may count as debt

Lenders may view long-term equipment finance arrangements as debt and adjust their valuation of your laboratory as a business, reducing your ability to access other types of business finance.

Your key equipment could be at risk

If you are unable to keep up repayments on a hire purchase or lease agreement, the equipment your lab depends on could be at risk.

Getting maintenance and repair as part of your lease could be essential

Lease arrangements may include maintenance and repair. If these are the responsibility of the leasing company you need to ensure they have the necessary resources and arrangements to support your equipment.
