As a professional chiropractor, you need at least one chiropractic table, and if you intend to see more than one patient at a time, then chances are you’ll probably want more than one. Depending on the kind of table you choose to use, the cost for this crucial piece of equipment can get rather high.
However, while you may be able to find a fairly good deal on a high quality chiropractic table, it is never worth sacrificing quality for cost. Therefore, if the chiropractic table you feel would most benefit you and your clients is on the pricier side of the spectrum, it may be wise to consider financing.
In the most basic terms, financing allows you to pay for your chiropractic table over time, rather than paying for it all in one lump sum at the time of purchase. Different manufacturers may offer varying financing options, so search around to find the table and the financing plan that best suits you and your practice.
For example, you may feel that you can afford a shorter, one-year financing plan, or you might feel more comfortable making smaller payments over the course of two or three years.
The way in which you finance your chiropractic table will depend on a few different factors, including the purchase price of the table, the amount of money you are willing or able to spend on the initial down payment and then the length of the financing term.
In many cases, even the down payment portion of financing a chiropractic table can be optional, which allows those chiropractors who do not have much liquid cash available to go ahead and get the table they need. However, the benefit of making a down payment is that this can reduce your monthly payments over the course of the financing plan. Again, take some time to look at all your financing options when it comes to the purchase of your next chiropractic table.
