To assist you in better understanding our product, here are some of the most frequently asked questions in the leasing/financing business.
How will leasing affect my company's cash flow?
In a word, positively. That's because leasing usually offers lower monthly payments than other financing sources. Those lower payments can help you bring revenues and expenses into closer alignment. And because payments are fixed, you can forecast future expenses more accurately and improve your budgeting process.
Is a down payment required?
Leasing is generally considered 100% financing, with as little as one advance payment required.
Can I finance the remaining balance if I have placed a down payment on the equipment?
Yes, if you choose to make a down payment you can subtract that amount from the total owed on the equipment.
How are lease payments structured?
There's considerable flexibility in payment arrangements. While most leases provide for regular monthly payments, those payments may be made in advance, in arrears, or at irregular intervals. Terms range from 12 to 66 months and can be customized to suit your company's needs.
Is there a maximum or a minimum lease amount?
The minimum deal that Questor Financial Corp can fund is $1,500. There is no maximum amount.

Yes, subject to credit approval.
Can I still lease equipment if I have already purchased it?
