We feel the true way to measure how good our team and our services are is through our recent customer feedback. We are very proud of the long term relationships we have built with clients over the years and honoured they return to us for their business finance requirements. We feel this is critical to our reputation and provides evidence for new clients that we are unmatched in our service.
I have been dealing with First Financial for over five years and they have continually assisted my company with asset finance for various printing equipment. Most recently, they assisted with one of my larger acquisitions for a new Xerox 700 machine.
Ensuring that we had the latest technology for us to remain competitive was almost critical to my business. When I first considered the equipment I was concerned about difficulties in raising the money needed, given the current financial climate. I went back to First Financial who managed, once again, to obtain a suitable finance package for our company to enable us to make this purchase.
We decided to replace one of our karting fleets which consisted of 50 units. After negotiating with suppliers we needed to raise circa £250,000 to make this purchase possible. We had been contacted by First Financial earlier that year regarding finance requirements for our company and gave them the opportunity to quote for our new acquisition. First Financial managed to offer us a finance package we couldn’t refuse, and once the finance was approved and in place we took delivery of our new fleet.
We have since obtained additional funding for various projects and equipment which have all been via First Financial. As a successful business we always look at other brokers and lenders for quotes, however First Financial always provide us with a great service and competitive rates.
I was introduced to First Financial via my accountant as I required assistance in obtaining the vehicle leasing finance needed for a new vehicle. The finance was processed smoothly, and I was able to take delivery of my car just a couple of weeks after the initial contact.
Later in the year, I was looking to open two additional childrens play and adventure centres and needed funding for the play framing. First Financial were my first port of call and again managed to secure the asset finance needed to enable my business to grow.
We were introduced to First Financial by one of the suppliers of equipment to our new restaurant. We were looking to arrange finance for the complete re fit to the new premises. As a new start-up restaurant based in the heart of London, we were looking to secure additional funding to the value of £130,000 to ensure our establishment was furnished to the highest possible standard prior to opening.
We were amazed that within just a few weeks First Financial had managed to raise all of the finance required to cover not only our till system, but the full kitchen and restaurant furnishings, which were necessary to enable us to open our restaurant on time. We have also recently obtained additional finance via First Financial for further equipment required within our restaurant.
We had exhausted all avenues of obtaining the necessary funding for our client from traditional funding sources. I contacted First Financial and, within two weeks, the client had agreed terms and received funding from a lender who understood the client’s business. The expert assistance and guidance throughout the process were exemplary, keeping the client and us informed every step of the way. We now have a very delighted client, once again thank you so much for all the hard work you and your team put into this.
