Fast, Easy Auto Dealer Funding When You Need It

Traditional lenders like banks often consider automotive dealer loans to be “high risk” because vehicle sales are large, high-ticket transactions that are subject to higher than average sales volatility. Profit margins are also thinner, and vehicle inventory depreciates rapidly. This can make it difficult for your dealership to get the funding you need from a traditional lender like a bank or the SBA.

With a streamlined online application, faster turnaround, and flexible approval requirements, Greenbox Capital is able to approve more car dealer funding. We provide a variety of alternative auto dealer funding options to help drive your automotive dealership’s growth, with funding from as low as $3,000 up to $500,000. We fund all automotive businesses, including independent dealerships, used car dealers, repair shops, service centers, and more.

Auto Dealer Funding Rates

Auto dealer funding rates depend on the type of alternative small business funding you receive. Most alternative car dealer funding options use a factor rate instead of a traditional interest rate. Factor rates are simple decimal figures that show how much “extra” you will owe on the original amount of the loan. Your factor rate is determined based on your risk assessment, so the stronger your business’s financial history, the lower your rate should be.

How To Use Car Dealer Funding

Consumers are choosing to keep their vehicles longer, opting to repair their cars instead of replacing them. To help meet the challenges posed by these changes in consumer behavior and other economic factors, many automotive dealers are focusing on building customer loyalty and retention by expanding their used vehicle departments or offering aftermarket services such as financing, insurance, and vehicle maintenance and repair.

There are no restrictions on how you can use auto dealer funding from Greenbox Capital. Car dealer funding is typically best used for supporting growth strategies that will increase your dealership’s revenue, such as:

  • Purchasing more inventory—one of the largest expenses for car dealerships
  • Upgrading or renovating your dealership’s showroom
  • Increasing dealership marketing to bring in more customers
  • Expanding your business to include a repair shop—in 2018, franchised dealerships alone wrote more than 310 million repair orders for service and parts totaling more than $116 billion
  • Offering buyer incentives, such as discounted or free oil changes for a year, warranty programs, or free roadside assistance in partnership with a local towing company

How do I get funding for a car dealership?

You can get funding for a car dealership from traditional lenders like the SBA or a bank, as well as from alternative lenders like Greenbox Capital. Alternative lenders have more flexible approval requirements that consider the overall health and potential of your business—not just your credit score—and offer revenue-based financing options that are more ideal for businesses with lower credit scores. Contact one of our Funding Advisors to learn more.
