I'm about to be given funding via NWES in Norfolk and Pinnacle people( a Government agency). I'm starting a pressure washing business with a new contract to tend to Lord Somerleytons woodland, lake and lodges amongst other business usage for the pressure washer. I have no trading figures as this is a new set up. I need either a 4x4 SUV with the capability to tow a trailer 1800kg or more. I'm a sole trader and need a vehicle ASAP,is this possible? If so who do I need to speak with?

Hello Stuart, thank you for leaving your question on the site. As you are starting up as a sole trader the finance company will simply look at your personal credit score, however they may need proof of trading, so the chances are we may not be able to lease a vehicle to you right away. Some of the finance companies require a business to be trading for at least two years, however we have some funders that would simply need 3 months’ business bank statements. Please get in touch with one of the team on 01442 838 195 and we can talk you through all of the options. Thank you. Kind regards, Richard Wells.
