GULFPORT, Miss.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
When a trucking company has been able to succeed during the recent ups and downs of the economy and has been able to pay their bills on time, it says a lot about their strength. When a trucking company has also been able to properly service their fleet and maintain a good safety record as well, it may be time to explore growth opportunities. Louis J. Normand, Jr, CEO at American Truck Group pointed this out recently to his senior management and as a result they are actively expanding in order to provide such opportunities to trucking companies.
American Truck Group* is a truck dealership with a twist. Normand, through his National Truck Funding affiliate offers a simple alternative to traditional financing. The National Truck Funding program offers owner-operators and trucking companies the opportunity to add trucks to their fleet and avoid the nightmare of tons of paperwork the banks and finance companies require, where frequently there is an answer of “sorry, we just can’t make this work at this time.”
Even if the trucking company has great financial and cash in reserves, having access to an alternative program that will provide the funds for the truck expansion project is a real value. There is also an advantage that because the American Truck Group program is not financing, then there is no debt to be counted against the customer when he does need to obtain traditional financing. The American Truck Group program has no Credit Check with very little paperwork or Credit Analyst Review and no ratio requirements. There is no Credit Report run on either the individual or the company. It is truly a No Credit Check program.
The trucks that are available within the American Truck Group program are the best late model used over the road Class 8 trucks available. These include Volvo, Kenworth, Peterbilt, and Freightliner trucks. Most of the trucks are 2007 through 2011 year models. All are DOT ready and carry both the 30 day “bumper to bumper” Protection Plan as well as the 50/50 48 month Protection Plan.
Additionally, American Truck Group approves those that have tax liens or have had a bankruptcy in their recent past. Normand stresses that American Truck Group just doesn’t care about this when approving a customer. The American Truck Group program helps launch trucking businesses. Normand is proud to say this in turn helps people realize the American Dream of owning their own business. He kids that he has helped launch the careers of many “Professional Bug Killers.”
