Types of Business Auto Loans
Business Name Only
If your business qualifies for financing without the owner’s guaranty, you can obtain financing in the business name only. This gives you the ability to save your personal credit for other use. In addition, you can build credit in your business name and protect yourself from liability related to the operation of the vehicle.
Business Name + Third-Party Guaranty
You can buy or lease vehicles in the name of your business but need to secure additional financing, you may act as a guarantor. This allows you to keep your name off the title and may keep the debt off your personal credit record. Keep in mind, if your business defaults, you may become liable and the debt may be reported on your personal credit record.

Commercial vehicles with upfits kit such as a service boy, crane lift device, towing equipment and other specialized equipment are included in one loan.
