All I Want For Christmas is… a Heavy Equipment Financing Company

It goes back to when I was a kid. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts over the years, I was the guy with the Tonka® trucks. So I kind of gravitate to heavy equipment, construction machinery, and related. Usually when we finance a piece of construction equipment, we get information on the make, model, specs, a picture or three, and similar. Even now, in my adult years, I imagine these immense machines, with giant tires (or maybe even tank treads) moving, pushing, and shoveling earth. I won’t say whether I have a toy truck or three in my desk drawer or not. And if I did, I’m not going to say whether they come out at lunchtime…

One thing I do like is the number of companies that come to us to lease a dump truck or finance a backhoe. In fact, over the last few years, heavy equipment financing has really taken off as the economy improves, and Crest Capital has sort of become known as a prolific heavy equipment financing company (amongst other types of industrial machinery – CNC machines still lead the pack).

Recently, a client mentioned financing and the holidays, and is where I got the title to this post – he said “I felt like the bank was Scrooge, with a long list of legalese. My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and I actually blurted out something like ‘I want a heavy equipment financing company that doesn’t make it hard’. Well, my gift to myself was I found you, and my wife is probably getting me the camera I wanted, so it’s a good December.”

That’s what I like to hear. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to check my desk drawer before I make my Christmas list…
