Truck Finance

Helping a customer upgrade their fleet

Here at Scaffold Finance, we can finance a range of assets. This goes from scaffolding tubes and boards to CCTV and even drones. All these assets are essential to a scaffolding business, no matter the size of the company or project you undertake. Helping customers and watching their business grow is one of the most important things we value here at Scaffold Finance. In this blog, we mention how we helped a customer upgrade their fleet and what this meant for them and their business. We helped a customer upgrade their existing fleet of scaffold trucks to comply with the introduction of the Portsmouth Clean Air Zone (CAZ).

What is the Portsmouth CAZ?

On their website they explain that “some areas of Portsmouth have levels of pollutants, like nitrogen dioxide, that are likely to remain above safe legal limits unless we take strong action quickly.” They also mention how the vehicles contribute to “50% of air pollution.” This is a very high percentage and so changing the way that vehicles are used on the roads will help decrease this number. The scheme launches on the 29th of November this year. This finance project therefore needed to be completed in a short amount of time. This was to ensure the client had the vehicles well before the start date of the scheme. Had they not upgraded any of their trucks, they would have had to pay a daily penalty charge.

Why did our client finance their scaffold trucks from us?

Financing scaffold trucks are on the rise more and more. Finance is the easiest and most cost-effective way to get a scaffold truck for your business. Here at Scaffold Finance, we pride ourselves on having a simple, fast, and efficient process. So, when the client came to us and explained their challenge, we were able to propose the deal and have it approved within a 24-hour period. As soon as the signed agreement was returned by the client, the funds were released. Their supplier was paid on the same day. The process from start to finish was quick and simple, as shown below.

What the client had to say about helping them upgrade their fleet

“We recently used Scaffold Finance to assist with buying 3 scaffolding lorries. Carl, who arranged everything, was extremely courteous and professional, keeping us informed at all times. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We would highly recommend them to any business who are looking to finance all aspects of scaffolding .”

Future plans in helping the customer upgrade their fleet

As mentioned on our customer page, Scaffold Finance are now financing a further two trucks for them to help ensure that their fleet of vehicles are fully compliant with the Portsmouth CAZ. We also included a 2-month VAT deferral for our client. This meant that our client was able to pay the VAT in line with the end of their VAT quarter.
