I would agree. Financing with an actual finance company and not a bank is much easier and faster. Last purchase took not more than half a dozen emails and I don’t think I turned over any financial documents besides the build sheet for the new truck. The relationship really helps too, as D.J. and I know each other well enough now that we can work well together, and both know what to expect from each other. I’ve never had that with any of the three banks I use, the banks are not the least bit personal.Good to hear, that’s a solid referral. I’m not in it (wicked small potatoes) but have been focusing on the financing and number crunching side of this career for the past year or so. Figured out that being a hard worker, decent climber, and having a degree in forestry doesn’t equal netting much money. Seems like having a financial relationship with a firm like in the article would make the business side (and scaling) so much easier. Fuck banks.
