Different lenders offer different options and at different cost to you as the ‘borrower’. Depending on your circumstances the cost of finance will be different. Typically cost is determined by the following factors:

If you purchase your truck or trailer through a dealer it will need less paperwork and settle faster than if you purchase your truck or trailer privately.

The best rates are for truck and trailers that are 5 years old or less at the time you purchase and finance it. Older Trucks can also be financed but cost of finance will be higher because of the increased risk due to its age.

Cheaper finance can be obtained for business that have been operating for many years, have 2 years financial statements (ATO tax returns, BAS statements, accountants’s letter, bank statements showing income) and have assets.

If you have bad credit or adverse credit it will be harder and more costly to obtain finance.

Sometimes a risk premium can be added to client’s interest rate if the deal is deemed marginal based on servicing or risk of the particular age or type of Truck.

The process of financing a truck or trailer is fairly straightforward and is described below:

Step 1:

Our finance broker will contact you and discuss with you about you and your business’ circumstances and finance needs. This includes what work you do, the type of equipment you want to finance and how long you have been in business.

Step 2:

Your Broker will assess your borrowing capacity and the type of finance required (full doc, low doc or no doc). This will be dependent on if you have

  • financial statements;
  • ATO tax returns;
  • BAS statements;
  • An accountant’s letter;
  • Business bank statements available for the last 3 months showing income; or
  •  None of the above.

Step 3:

Your relevant documents (ID, ABN registration, financials if applicable, etc…) will be collected by your finance broker.  Your broker will be in position to identify different options for you to choose, complete a finance application and obtain a finance offer for you that suits your needs.

Step 4:

Your broker requests an invoice from the seller of the truck or trailer and organises for an inspection if required.

Step 5:

Documents are prepared and sent to you for signing either via email or in person.

Step 6:

The finance is referred for settlement, the seller of the truck or trailer is paid and you can then pick-up the truck or trailer!

Step 7:

Post settlement paperwork is sent to you with a copy of the seller’s tax invoice and the contract so you can provide this to your accountant for tax purposes.
