A Few Tips for New and Small Business Owners:

  1. Pay cash if available. Use existing banking relationships and resources first before applying to outside sources. Consider a personal loan for first-time borrowers and for financing on older vehicles. For short-term borrowing ask friends, family and business associates for help getting started. For new businesses, credit unions are an excellent source and can be joined easily. Special programs are available for veterans, disabled persons, and civil service workers.
  2. Seek the advice of a credit professional before making applications such as Certified Financial Planners and CPA’s if possible. Small business loans are available through government programs. Don’t be shy about consulting with your local “SCORE” office (
  3. Call 516-333-7483, Major Vehicle Exchange President Charles Kaufman, CPA for additional information.
  4. Do not send the credit application form to unknown recipients.
  5. New businesses and small businesses should expect to pay higher rates and have substantial down payments and/or need security deposits.
  6. Try to avoid dealer financed purchases and buy-here-pay-here lenders. Their fees and rates are typically very high and may impair the financial ability of borrowers to achieve profitability.
