Buying Heavy Equipment in an Inflation Environment

When inflation hits your business there are many things to consider. According to the Federal Reserve (often referred to as “the Fed”), there are two units of measure for inflation. Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the Personal Consumption Expenditures price index (PCE). When these numbers rise the Fed has to react by raising interest rates. This, in turn, increases rates on the financing of equipment necessary to keep your business moving.

The necessity to purchase heavy equipment during an inflation environment will mean different things to different businesses. In a climate of inflation purchasing equipment sooner than later can benefit your business and set you up for success. As the trending interest rates increase, the right heavy equipment can become scarce and cause you to have to pay more in interest throughout the loan.

Since news on this topic can change day-to-day it is important to seek advice from professionals in the financing industry to help keep you informed.
