Pawnee Leasing Corporation is a small-ticket equipment financing company specializing in providing commercial loans and leases for equipment financing from $1,000 to $350,000 for all credit types. Founded in 1982, we originate all of our business through an independent network of equipment financing brokers and we operate in all 50 states. We are active members and leaders in several industry trade associations including the American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (AACFB), National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA), and the Equipment Leasing and Financing Association (ELFA).
Whether you are an independent Equipment Leasing Broker, Equipment Dealer/Manufacturer or a Small Business Owner with unique credit needs, we believe our creativity and superior service provide our customers important opportunities not offered by most traditional leasing companies.
Many in the industry describe our firm as the “Premier funding source for start up and less traditional credit applicants”. Our services can provide an important component to a full service lease brokerage by helping the broker differentiate themselves from their competition by having a funding source available for every credit worthy leasing applicant including start-ups and those with past credit problems. Our programs are easy to understand, our credit process is hands-on and our funding is simple and quick — all intended to assist a lease broker in capturing new vendor and customer relationships. Please see the Broker area for extensive information about our programs, audio and video training and on-line documentation.
Create new sales opportunities and add to your bottom line.
If you actively use leasing as a sales tool with your prospects you’re most likely working with a lease company that simply doesn’t consider leasing applicants whose business is under two (2) years time in business (start-up) or has a credit profile that doesn’t meet their more rigid credit parameters. Those are lost sales opportunities for you! We can help you increase your sales! We’re happy to refer you to an approved Pawnee Leasing broker, whom can educate your sales force about the benefits of leasing as well as helping them match our credit guidelines with many of your sales prospects. Please see the “Equipment Vendor” button on our home page to contact us.
Seeking financing for equipment for your business? Are you a new business or one that has unique credit needs? We’re here to help. We finance most equipment types ranging from $1,000 up to $350,000, with terms up to six years. If you have already selected an equipment dealer/manufacturer please have them contact us or for the quickest assistance, select the “Business Owner” button on our home page and we will have an equipment leasing professional from our nationwide, independent network of leasing brokers contact you right away to help you acquire the equipment you need to grow your business.

Welcome to our Web Home. Even though many of you who will visit our website routinely know our business very well, we still have the goal of creating a website that would be more than a postcard of Pawnee Leasing Corporation. Rather we want it to be fresh and useful. What you will find beyond the home page will be a wealth of information and resources created to support and serve our equipment finance brokers & lessors.
Broker partners may also access our online AppTrak system – the backbone of our operating systems where you can submit applications and experience cradle to grave communications on your transactions, all on-line 24/7.

One hint, I highly recommend exploring the video and audio training features available on the website. Even the most seasoned leasing salesperson can benefit from our “On-Line Training Center”. Presentations encompass the 101’s of lease marketing that we all need to be reminded of from time-to-time, teachings on addressing common objections in small-ticket leasing such as personal guaranty’s, dealing with objections such as ACH, selling our unique “term residual lease” product and more. Many of our brokers use these valuable features in regular training with their new and tenured salespeople.
For those of you who have not known us as perhaps the most tenured funding source serving the brokerage community, I’ll offer you some insight about our company. Established in 1982, Pawnee was founded as a niche, national firm that specialized in providing small-ticket lease products to start-up companies and other firm’s that were well established but had some credit difficulty in their past such that they could not qualify with traditional lenders. Today, our approximately 85 employee Pawnee “Tribe”, underwrites the full spectrum of small-ticket credit from highly competitive “A” credit up to less traditional, credit worthy profiles. Our range of credit offerings ranges from $1,000 to $350,000 and we purchase leases in all of the lower 50 states. All of our broker relationships consider our services extremely valuable in helping them to differentiate their firms from the traditional equipment finance sources with their vendor relationships and lessee/borrower customers. We are perhaps the only funding source that dedicates 100% of their resources to the broker community only.
In 2006, Pawnee Leasing was purchased by Chesswood Group Limited, a publicly-held (TSX:CHW), specialty finance company based in Toronto, Canada and we operate as its largest subsidiary company. You can be confident in your business with Pawnee Leasing as our business experience and financial strength is unmatched in the independent lessor community.
We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
