Truck Finance

When it comes to truck finance (especially for those who are new to the business),the key is presentation. There are a several things that a lender is likely to want from a borrower – and if you can show them that you fit their criteria in your application, you may have an improved chance that you’ll get an approval.

On the other hand, if the lender isn’t convinced that you’ll be able to pay them back, they’re unlikely to give you a loan. But how much are your payments likely to cost, and will you be able to keep on top of them? If you want to finance a truck and learn more about doing so, you’ve come to the right place.


What will you need?

If a lender doesn’t think you’ll be able to keep up with your payments, they aren’t likely to give you a loan. Because of this, almost all lenders will want to know:

  • The age of the vehicle you want
  • What deposit you can offer them (which can be cash or assets)
  • Identification documents, such as your passport or drivers licence
  • Your business plan and projected cash flow
  • The number of existing clients and regular income you receive
  • Your main business activities
  • Property ownership and equity
  • Your credit score
  • How long you’ve been running your business
  • Cash flow statements, or your average saving pattern on your trading account
  • If you have adequate income to keep up payments for the loan


If, for example, you have a bad credit history or an unsteady source of income, you may not have much chance of getting your application for truck finance approved. However, with good credit and everything a lender needs to see that you’re trustworthy and likely to pay them back, they may be more inclined to give you a loan.
