Haulage Re-finance

Haulage Re-finance

How haulage re-finance works

By determining the 'stress' or forced-sale value of the assets within a company, haulage re-finance lenders can identify how much asset re-finance the business can be eligible for. Lenders can provide cash in a low risk environment because the lending will be secured against the total value of the business's assets.

By performing a desktop valuation, which is simple, quick and free of charge, lenders can confirm the final amount of asset re-finance that the business will be entitled to. Because banks do not normally require an analysis of working assets, haulage re-finance has a very limited impact on the risk to the institution.

In many cases, the limited number of haulage re-finance lenders may prefer to reduce overdrafts or other unwanted exposure through this arrangement, which may help to balance the risks of the bank's existing lending agreements. They will use a lower interest rate if the perceived risk is lower but even with a higher interest rate, the cost of the haulage re-finance will be outweighed by the rewards delivered for the business in the long term.

A fast cash boost from haulage-financing

Compared to traditional bank loans, which can take weeks or months to be formalised, haulage re-financing agreements can provide funding in just days. The owners or Directors of the business will usually be expected to provide an unsupported guarantee and may receive funding for a period of up to 5 years.

Before haulage re-financing, many businesses may prefer to contact their long-standing financial partners and bank Relationship Manager for support. However, business owners already self-funding their untapped assets are less likely to win support from such partners.
