Dump Truck Loans with Bad Credit Option 1 (Worst of Credit)

We have several lenders that can offer financing for a dump truck with even the most challenged of credit scenarios as mentioned above. Here’s the deal. There are a couple of ways that we can pretty much finance ANYBODY:

  1. If you have a down payment of 25% – 50% then we have a lender that will finance your dump truck pretty much no matter what.
  2. If you don’t have a down payment to the tune of 25% – 50%, you can potentially pledge secondary collateral. Typically, they are looking for a 1:1 ratio in terms of the secondary collateral. Below is an example:

Let’s say you have a Kenworth T-800 dump truck (or any other heavy equipment, commercial vehicles, yellow iron, etc.) that’s got an auction value of $42,000 and it’s free and clear with no liens. This free and clear truck can be pledged as secondary collateral to help you finance new dump truck despite your credit issues. You potentially can finance a little more than $42,000 because technically you only need about 40% down payment or collateral. So, in a case like this, if you have a $42,000 free and clear truck, you may be able to finance as much as $61,000 or $62,000. This lender looks at every case on an individual basis and they listen to your story and sometimes they may only need 25-30% down or collateral in the transaction.

Dump Truck Financing with Bad Credit Option 2 (Less Damaged Credit)

We have another lender we work with that will finance heavy equipment with about a 35% down payment and credit scores lower than 570. This is another lender that likes to hear the story behind what happened as well as what you’ll be make happening with the new credit (jobs/contracts lined up etc.).

There really is no SET guidelines. They do provide basic guidelines, but I’ve seen them finance outside of those guidelines etc.

Here’s a sample transaction that was funded by this lender:

A Texas contractor with 25 years plus experience needed an another dump truck during the Corona Virus Pandemic to stay caught up with strong demand. Traditional funding sources like banks had turned him down because of a small charge-off and a debt settlement 4+ years earlier. A net 50% down payment and strong auction comps for the collateral made it a deal for this particular lender.

Lender’s Solution:  $40,750 36-month term loan

Collateral:  2014 Freightliner Cascadia CA12DC Quad-Axle Dump Truck priced at $81,500
