With businesses reopening after months of coronavirus restrictions and Governments using all their levers to get the economy into recovery, these are all hopefully positive signs that business for crane truck operators will be on the up. Construction in particular has been flagged as a major driver for economic recovery and truck mounted crane are a must-have to move materials and equipment around most sites and from site to site. Perhaps your focus is more on deliveries. Possibly delivering pallet-loads of feed in the agricultural and farming sector. Getting products from suppliers to warehouses and logistics centres or delivering horticultural supplies around the cities.
Whatever your particular business, if your crane truck needs upgrading to cope with your current demands, you’ll no doubt need a truck loan to cope with the purchase. Perhaps you’re planning to buy now to take advantage of the Federal Governments IAWO or BBI schemes. Jade Truck Loans specialises in truck loans across all types of vehicles and we have a range of options to suit most business operators and most trucks.
New Crane Truck Loans
If you’re buying a new Hino, Isuzu or Mitsubishi and acquiring the crane from a separate supplier, speak with your Jade consultant about bundling the loans for both into the one package. As well as saving the time and hassle of arranging two separate loan deals, it will also give you the convenience of just the one monthly loan repayment to deal with.
Used Truck Mounted Crane Loans
At the time of preparing this article, a quick browse of the popular truck sales sites revealed good stocks of second hand crane trucks on the market. Our loan option extend to the used truck market with our cheap interest rates applicable across both new and second hand vehicles.
When assessing offers on used vehicles, individual lenders will take into account the age and condition of the truck and possibly the crane itself. Their assessment may be reflected in the loan term offered or the total loan amount they will agree to finance. As opposed to you taking on that discussion with your bank yourself, your Jade finance broker will handle the negotiations and strive to achieve the outcome that you want.
Truck Loan Options
For the purchase of either a new or a used crane truck, we provide our customers with the full range of loan products.
Leasing and Rent to Own tend to be the most popular loan types with our truck loan customers. These are off balance sheet options, meaning the asset, the truck crane, does not appear on your balance sheet. This is considered as ‘improving the balance sheet’. This type of finance is suited to businesses that use the accruals method of accounting so we advise you speak with your accountant.
If you’re planning on taking advantage of the IAWO currently on offer then there are a few points to make. The deadline is running out – this scheme expires on 31 December – so you’ll want to get moving. And, in order to depreciate the asset you’ll need to use a Chattel Mortgage to finance your crane truck. With this type of loan the asset appears on your balance sheet and hence can be depreciated. It utilises the cash accounting method so again, a convo with your accountant is highly recommended.
Low Docs and No Docs Options
If you really need that truck crane but you don’t have all the financial documentation that the banks are demanding to approve a loan, don’t despair. At Jade we are accredited with not only the major banks but many non-bank lenders. These lenders are usually more open to discussing specialist loans such as Low Docs and No Docs Truck Loans and your Jade consultant can approach them and discuss a loan offer on your behalf.
To be eligible for this type of loan you will require:-
- Current ABN
- Registered for GST with BAS statements is highly preferred
- Some form of accounts, such as income and expenditure records, even simple docs prepared by yourself.
Each loan application is considered individually and the individual lenders will make their own loan risk assessments and make their loan offer accordingly. The interest rate for this type of loan will be higher than for a fully documented loan and the lender may apply certain conditions or limits on the loan amount or loan term.
