Your funding options
In many cases, wrapping and packaging must be integrated into the production process and will mean an additional station to budget for when planning the production line. Only the largest manufacturing operations are likely to have the cash reserves to equip a full production operation outright.
Fortunately, there are funding options which can help you finance the packaging and wrapping equipment you need.
- Asset finance
- Asset Refinance
Asset Finance - Hire Purchase and leasing - can help with financing new assets and equipment and put virtually any type of production equipment within your reach.
Hire Purchase – buying your equipment
Hire Purchase offers a straightforward way to spread the cost of the machinery that makes up your production operation. You pay a fixed rate of interest and agreed monthly payments, making budgeting simple and easy. You will need to put down a deposit, typically between 5%-25% of the total price, and repay the remainder, together with the interest, over an agreed period of up to 60 months.
You may also have the option to structure your payments to fit your projected cashflow. For example, you can reduce your regular payments by agreeing to pay a final lump sum, known as a balloon payment, when your production is fully operational, and revenue is coming in.
Lease – avoiding capital costs
Leasing operates like a rental agreement.
With a lease, your equipment is hired to you by the finance company. It remains their property, avoiding the need for capital expenditure and ensuring that you need never be left with obsolete equipment. Monthly payments and interest rates are fixed for the duration of the contract. You may also be able to choose a lease which gives maintenance and repair back to the finance company, helping reduce your risk.
You can pay for your equipment from the income it generates each month.
When equipment becomes obsolete, or your production process changes, you can simply return it to the finance house at the end of the lease. This makes it simpler to adopt new machinery, allowing you to update your operation to keep abreast of the latest developments.

Asset Refinance - Helping you raise cash
You probably already have a considerable investment tied up in your production equipment and throughout your factory.
An Asset Refinance agreement can let you re-use that investment.
It works by letting you sell existing assets to a finance company, who will provide you with a cash payment which you can use as you wish. You will then make monthly repayments to buy them back.
You can continue to use the equipment while you are repaying. So, if you want to extend your production line and provide packaging, your production equipment could provide a source of the investment you need.
You can also use Asset Refinance to replace an existing funding agreement - allowing you to reduce monthly outgoings.

Cutting the cost of buying
Packaging equipment manufacturers and dealers will often offer HP arrangements to help them secure sales. These can sound attractive, and sometimes even include 0% finance options. While these may look attractive, at Rangewell we know that there can actually be hidden costs. You may be able to save money by arranging finance yourself.
See how we can help you beat 0% finance deals.
It may be possible to simply borrow funding for individual machines.
There are two types of basic business lending, which can be used for any business purpose and can provide a simple way to funding for equipment purchase. Unsecured business loans can be suitable for smaller items and usually allow you up to 5 years to repay.
Secured loans are ‘secured’ because the lender will require security in case you cannot pay the loan back. This could be your home or your business premises. They can be used to borrow large sums of money of £250,000 or more making them suitable for major investments, such as the setting up of production operations.
