What finance deals can you offer me?

Commercial vehicle finance essentially means spreading the cost of your vehicle over an agreed period, paying back in monthly instalments. Businesses use it because vehicles are expensive and often company directors would rather not take one large hit to their cashflow.

Portman typically offer commercial vehicle finance on a Hire Purchase arrangement, with or without balloon. Asset finance does include leasing, which we may be able to offer, particularly on very high value vehicles such as HGVs or coaches.

What sort of business vehicles can you finance?


Is using finance for my new vehicles a good idea?

Vehicles, especially if you need to buy multiple, are an expensive outlay. With vans typically over £30k and HGV tractor units over £100k, it can be difficult to save for long enough to make purchases of this size. If your business has large amounts of free cash then this is an option, but the risk is that your free cash is then not available for an array of operational costs.

Finance helps you spread the cost of getting the vehicles you need now, but most importantly, allows you to grab opportunities, to expand capacity and to win new contracts. If this is on the cards for you, then finance is one good way of getting what your business needs to unlock its potential. Lets not pretend there isn’t a commitment to a number of years with finance, but, if your business is sound and the opportunities are there, you could generate much more income than the cost of finance.
