HOW DO WE MAKE OUR CREDIT DECISIONS?

NBF Capital uses a point-based scoring model to make its credit decisions. A point value is awarded based upon the customer’s ability to meet pre-determined criteria. Decisions are not made on a customer’s credit history alone. The more points a customer scores above and beyond the approval threshold, the lower the rate will be. Remember, we are not merely just a “sub-prime” lender.


WHAT IS OUR CREDIT PROCESS?

In a word, quick. At NBF Capital we want to help you sell your equipment. Bottom line, we understand that a quick credit decision can be critical to closing a deal, and that is why we strive to provide a credit decision within 2-4 hours.


The credit process is as follows:

1. Application – Once you have a committed buyer, have your customer complete a copy of our Credit Application or a copy of our “Sniff Test.” NBF Capital requires the customer’s signature in order to request any credit report. The more complete the application we receive, the quicker a decision can be made.

2. Fax us the Info – Upon completion of the application, fax it to 801-453-8031 along with a copy of the sales order and a copy of the equipment specifications.

3. Sit back and Relax – When our Credit Department has received the application, a typical credit decision will be given within 2 - 4 hours. The credit process includes: applicant interview, collateral valuation, credit reference check, credit bureau analysis and verification of work/haul references. Remember, the better the info we receive the quicker the process.

4. Approval – depending on a customers qualifications, an approval including terms and conditions will be communicated to the dealer via phone or in writing. With your approval, we would also be happy to sell the financing deal to your customer.
