Financing for Auto Repair & Service
Since 2001, ARF Financial has helped thousands of auto repair and service shop owners obtain approvals on more than a billion dollars. We’ve done this by offering innovative loan products and flexible repayment options specifically for the needs of those in the auto repair and service industry.
Recently, due to supply chain issues and rampant inflation, many consumers are deciding to keep their vehicles longer to save money. This presents tremendous growth potential for auto repair shops and service centers, but it costs money to take advantage of these timely opportunities. Having enough mechanics, the right equipment and diagnostic tools is important, and costly, to meet the higher demand. That’s where we come in. Our loan products allow auto repair and service business owners quick access to the funding needed to serve their markets and maximize profits.
At ARF, our focus is to get you the capital you need when you need it, all while providing seasoned guidance to help you maximize your return on investment. That’s why we’re devoted to sticking by your side for the long haul, ensuring you can capitalize on new business opportunities or emerging trends as they develop. Here are some valuable options to put our auto repair and service financing to work in your business:
Larger Loan Amounts, Longer Terms & Big Rewards
Big projects usually mean big upfront investments, something you can’t get from a merchant cash advance. If you’re ready to take the plunge and go BIG this year, we have financing that’s the perfect fit. You can now borrow up to $1,000,000 with terms up to 36 months to fund your big projects while keeping your costs low. Our average loan size is over six times larger and repayment terms are more than three times longer than a Merchant Cash Advance. Larger loan amounts mean you can invest in growth opportunities that will make a significant impact to your bottom line, and longer terms mean your payments are manageable and won’t interfere with your cash flow!
