    Just wondering who you guys went through and if you are satisfied. Mostly looking at those who did not finance through a dealer. Banks are usually the best bet. But I know there are some lease to own companies out there too...

    Im finding out first hand that its alot easier to finance a $45,000 F-250 than it is a $25,000 F-750

    LOL, far from the reason. Call your bank and ask them about Commercial vehicle financing. There is a HUGE difference commercial vehicle financing and personal vehicle financing. Some places like USAA don't even offer it. I should know because I was pre-approved for up to $40,000 for another auto loan a few weeks ago. Found an International DT466 for $27,000 and was gonna use my pre=approval on it. Was told its a commercial vehicle and USAA does not offer financing on commercial vehicles.

    Try your local credit unions as well. If it is for a large piece of commercial equipment then you can apply for a commercial loan and use it for anything you want pertaining to your business (truck, excavator, mowers, etc.)
