Different lenders offer different options and at different cost to you as the 'borrower'. Depending on your circumstances the cost of finance will be different. Typically cost is determined by the following factors:

If you purchase your truck or trailer through a dealer it will need less paperwork and settle faster than if you purchase your truck or trailer privately.

The best rates are for truck and trailers that are 5 years old or less at the time you purchase and finance it. Older Trucks can also be financed but cost of finance will be higher because of the increased risk due to its age.

Cheaper finance can be obtained for business that have been operating for many years, have 2 years financial statements (ATO tax returns, BAS statements, accountants's letter, bank statements showing income) and have assets.

If you have bad credit or adverse credit it will be harder and more costly to obtain finance.

Sometimes a risk premium can be added to client’s interest rate if the deal is deemed marginal based on servicing or risk of the particular age or type of Truck.
