The exact process that is taken with every client will vary depending on their individual situation, circumstance and that of the truck or equipment to be financed. The table above has been prepared to highlight many of the common tasks that we as brokers undertake for our clients which are not always evident or obvious. However, when business owners try to do it all themselves and deal directly with lenders without the services of a competent broker, the differences often become very obvious.
Unfortunately, this is often too late to fix declined finance or change the wrong type of finance that was applied for, which can be extremely frustrating and costly to the growth of a business.
Save yourself the hard work, pain and lost time that comes with organising finance yourself to avoid mistakes and obtain the most favorable deal that’s available.
