Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. We finance all brands that includes Construction, Vocational and Box trucks as well. We can even help with equipment from outside our dealership.
We always recommend keeping cash for the rainy day (or insurance!). Unexpected events occur when you least expect them and you may be faced with an immediate need for cash. Having a cushion or reserve readily available may be just what you need to keep you afloat without the inconvenience and wait of obtaining yet another loan.
In addition to having reserves, you will be building Equipment credit that makes it much easier to buy that next truck. You may also be eligible for Finance perks – like free additional extended warranties, deferred 1st payments, etc.
Most lenders will require someone within the Company to have a CDL.
You will speak directly with our team who knows you are more than a number. You are the story behind your business. We want to know it. We’ve been here for more than 75 years – understanding the business and partnering with experienced, well established lenders who will also be here for the long haul while helping you establish very valuable Commercial credit.
Just like the days of Consumer credit – you have to start somewhere then keep it current and build a history. After that, getting Commercial credit will be easier and come with a better rate and term. The sooner you start, the better it will be for your entire Business.
There is never an application fee. There are fees associated with loans which may vary by lender.
Unless there has been a different agreement, we loan on equipment only and – when it is paid – it is paid. There is no ongoing line of credit supported your assets, no annual review and easier loan modification if necessary. While banks and credit unions offer commercial loans, our lenders specialize in Commercial lending.
- Commercial loan: Generally, a fixed monthly payment based off the initial purchase price less any down payment that may be required.
- Commercial loan with balloon payment: A balloon payment is a lump sum paid at the end of a loan’s term. The balloon payment is significantly larger than all of the previous payments. Balloon payments allow borrowers to reduce the fixed payment amount in exchange for making a larger payment at the end of the loan’s term
- Fair Market Value (FMV) lease: Allows the lessee to use the equipment for a pre-arranged time period for a fixed monthly payment. At the end of the lease term, the equipment may be returned to the lessor or purchased at it’s current Fair Market Value.
- Terminal Rental Adjustment Clause (TRAC) lease: Allows lessee to have a lower fixed monthly payment and to agree upon an estimated residual value of the equipment at the end of the lease. TRAC leases also offers three options at the end of the lease, the residual may be refinanced, lessee may pay residual and own equipment, or the asset may be turned into lessor and sold for market value. If the asset is sold for less/more than the residual than lessee will owe/receive the difference.
*Leases are generally available only on new equipment and may have certain tax advantage – please consult your tax advisor.
Absolutely. Our Truck Sales Department will review your trade terms with you and get you the best possible deal to get you the value out of your truck right now.

Select your truck so we have the specifications and price to work with. A complete credit application. Many factors such as driving experience, owner operator experience, fleet size (including medium duty and trailers) current lenders, previous lenders, monthly income all factor into an approval. You may call for a credit application or simply click here.
Generally, our team will begin the approval process the same day they receive your completed credit application. If additional items are required from the lender – we will let you know. The sooner all of the requirements are met – the quicker the decision.
Factors that impact a loan are Credit History and Equipment. Better Personal and Business credit scores typically equal a better rate and lower down payment. Age of Equipment also impacts the term of the loan. The newer the equipment – the longer the term.
Co-Buyers have a vested Financial obligation for the business and are involved in the day to day operation. Many times, the financial situation of owners will be considered. Co-Guarantors (or Co-Signers) generally add Financial strength to the purchase by adding their resources as a guarantee of payment.
Interest Rates are determined by the Market, the Industry, the Credit Score and the Term. Until we have a chance to review your situation, we are unable to quote a rate.
To do this, you will need the total amount to be financed, your interest rate and your term. As these are all variables that have not yet been calculated and may change overtime – We suggest that you have us process a credit application on your behalf. There is no commitment unless you move ahead with a loan.
You may also want to use some on-line payment calculators to see different scenarios for yourself.
In many cases – yes.
We do NOT sell you information. We do partner with a variety of trusted Lenders and submit to only those that we feel will fit your needs.
Not all lenders are the same. We will submit your loan to the lenders matching your specific situation.
Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes. Kenworth Sales understands everyone starts somewhere and some need a fresh start. We have lenders for most any situation.
YES – great question. Contact your Finance rep to discuss as these may change frequently.
Approval periods differ based on lender but are typically good for 30 days or less.
After successful completion of loan documents including dealer paperwork, down payments, proof of insurance, and any stipulations as required by the lender.
This is really based on your purpose. If your equipment is already financed, you should check with your lender to determine if there are any pre-payment penalties and examine potential new term, rate and any associated fees for a new loan. If you move ahead, you will also need to make changes on your insurance policies.
Discuss your options with your present and potential lenders.
