When does the insurance certificate need to be in to First Western Equipment Finance?
We prefer that the certificate be sent in with all other documents sent to the account manager. If that isn’t possible, as soon as possible thereafter, to make sure that customers are protected from loss or damage.
Will First Western Equipment Finance contact the agent?
We will follow-up with the agent to obtain the correct documents, but the customer must make an initial contact with their agent to add the equipment to their policy.

First Western Equipment Finance offers a large variety of financing options. We offer EFAs (equipment finance agreements), purchase-option leases, and municipal leases. We also offer flexible terms, such as seasonal and deferred payment options.
EFA stands for equipment finance agreement. Unlike a lease agreement where the lessor retains ownership of the equipment and the lessee may have the option to purchase at the end of the term, under an EFA the borrower retains ownership of the equipment financed throughout the term of the agreement.
An EFA may be the perfect solution for those who have experienced a difficulty regarding the end of term payment price, at the end of a lease agreement in the past. With an EFA, since there is no purchase option, there is no difficulty — you already own the equipment.
Agreements are non-cancellable. If you are interested in paying off early, call us to request a payoff quote.
First Western Equipment Finance only offers installment financing. We pride ourselves on having fixed rates, fixed terms and fixed payments.
Revolving (credit card style) accounts can eliminate their low initial rate if you were to make a late payment or go against any of the terms in your contract.
Installment financing will allow you to know exactly how many months it will take you to pay off your equipment, where paying minimum amounts on your revolving account will take much longer.
Fill out our simple credit application. You can fill one out online, print one out from this website, or ask your dealer for one to fill out.
