Are you trying to finance a Bobcat or skid steer loader but you have bad credit?
If you have already tried to get financing for a bobcat or skid steer loader and you’ve been turned down for issues like having bad credit you will find this article very informative. Most clients that we’ve spoken to assume because they were turned down for credit by other lenders automatically assume they can’t get financing. That is not necessarily true at all times.
Depending on your scenario, you might have options that you are not aware of. Today one of our managers spoke to a business owner who was recently told by a major bank that he was not qualified for financing a loader. After our representative spoke to the business owner, we were able to find out that he was turned down for financing by the bank but was not really told a reason why. He was left to only assume it was due to his credit score and possible derogatory credit.
After speaking to us, he later learned that there are options available for clients who might have bad credit or less than perfect credit. It’s still amazing to us that consumers assume just because they have some blemishes on their credit they are not able to financing equipment.
If I have bad credit, what options do I have if I want to lease or finance equipment?
Let’s assume your credit is so bad that you have a credit score that falls under 500, you currently have a tax lien, you have multiple judgments and collection accounts and your own family member wouldn’t loan you money. If that sounds close to your situation you need to know that there is still a possible solution.
Again, it’s not for everyone but if you have other collateral that is not leverage (that does not have a loan or lease) and it qualifies with our program you still might the ability to finance some equipment with us!
You don’t have perfect credit, but you don’t have horrible credit?
Ok, so your bank said they can’t offer skid steer financing for your equipment because you do not have perfect credit, but you also have above-average credit and you feel you should get better offers. We’ve heard plenty of stories from our past clients where a major bank declined financing because of one small minor flaw on a credit report. Even if there were plenty of good tradelines that show good payment history, but there’s that one “oops” tradeline that ends up being the one item that stops the bank or lender from providing your financing. Guess what, of course, we have the A through D financing options and if you have that “B” credit we have a home for you as well!
