What Are Auto Business Loans?

An auto business loan is a loan to help business owners start up an automotive business like an auto repair shop. They can also be used to help businesses purchase a vehicle to use for business needs. Because each business is unique, there are many different loan products to help.

How Financing Works for Auto Repair Shops

Getting auto repair business loans is important for many entrepreneurs who want to start this kind of business. The cost of a shop, tools, and inventory can all be financed using auto business loans. Once you apply and get approved, you may be able to choose from unsecured business loans, a merchant cash advance, a business line of credit, equipment financing, and even SBA loans.

Auto Repair Shop Financing FAQ

Before you get an auto shop loan, it’s best to have a plan in place to help you determine your most critical business needs. Doing this will ensure that you use your auto business loans to their full potential for everything from hiring new staff to buying supplies or expanding your shop.
Lending for an auto repair shop can look like term loans, business line of credit, working capital loans, and even cash or capital advances. Each of these loans come with different terms and loan amounts based on qualifying factors.
Reach out to a lender to apply for auto business financing. It’s best to have all your financial information for your business including income, expenses, assets, and profits for a year or more. If you’re just starting out, lenders may look at your personal credit to make a determination.
Businesses that are profitable are more likely to get approved for lending. If you’re just getting started, work on keeping your credit score in good standing, have a thorough business plan, and have money to invest in it yourself. These will help you get lending for your auto repair shop business.
