MADISON, AL - (Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - WIN Home Inspection, America's most advanced home inspection franchise, is helping franchise owners cut the cost of driving a new vehicle with an innovative partnership with The Bancorp, a major national financial service company and commercial lender.
WIN franchisees - called Strategic-Partners - can apply for a generous car leasing program offered by The Bancorp that can greatly decrease the amount of upfront cash it takes to open a home inspection franchise. This flexible funding option has no mileage restrictions or charges for wear and tear. It also may require no down payment.
Many participants enjoy a lower monthly payment, and the entire amount can be written off.
"The Bancorp is a long-term partner who is here to serve not only the existing Strategic-Partner network, but also those brand-new franchisees directly out of their two-week training program," said Michael Combs, vice president of sales and marketing for The Bancorp.
"Access to capital in today's climate isn't often easy, in particular for those with no business credit history. The Bancorp/WIN national fleet partnership is designed to let WIN Strategic-Partners focus on what they do best - home inspections," he said.
While WIN Strategic-Partners focus on growing their businesses, The Bancorp will assist with vehicle purchases. It will also extend lines of credit to help fund the vehicle as well as the official WIN graphics, and in some cases even the WIN Startup Package and the WIN Marketing Package. The Bancorp also can help dispose of older vehicles that have reached the end of their useful lives.
The Bancorp can get the best price on vehicles by negotiating with manufacturers and sources. The partnership with WIN Home Inspection gives Strategic-Partners additional buying power as a group - as a national system, WIN has more than 1,000 vehicles, Combs said.
"This helps free up your existing working lines of capital to fuel your business, not the vehicles that need fuel themselves. We certainly help get the WIN Strategic-Partners on the road to success and are here to help with their transportation needs," he added.
WIN Strategic Partner Justin Kirkbride relies on his WIN vehicle to serve customers throughout his territory in Montana. Kirkbride's vehicle gives him a clear advantage over competitors who make a poor impression by driving a beat-up old truck.
"There was room for someone more branded, with a more professional feel. I arrive wearing a professional uniform. I drive a late-model vehicle with WIN's branding on it. I love my vehicle, and I use it extensively. This being Montana - Big Sky Country - I have a large territory," Kirkbride said.
