Wrap Financing Case Study

The Problem

A towing business urgently needed to expand its fleet with the purchase of an expensive truck. Despite already having a deal with Beacon Funding in 2019, the customer was faced with unfavorable credit terms due to some sloppy payment history and an outstanding $650,000 in tax liens. Financing the truck also became difficult because of the high cost associated to a 35-ton Mack CL713 heavy wrecker.

The Solution

Beacon Funding provided a wrap payment plan. By leveraging equity from the 2019 deal to finance a used Mack CL713, Beacon Funding secured approval for a new 35-ton heavy wrecker purchase when other lenders wouldn't entertain the request.

The Results

The towing company successfully acquired a new 35-ton heavy wrecker with $335,569 in financing. The business was able to leverage the equity from their existing lease to qualify for a 45-month term payment plan. Despite having a risky credit profile, wrap financing helped them overcome their challenges to acquire the Mack truck they needed.
