If you need to modify or up-fit a vehicle such as adding a crane, lift device or towing equipment, Ally has financing for your vehicle plus essential up-fits. You can choose to:
- Modify trucks, vans or other commercial vehicles with special business equipment
- Comply with accessibility needs by adding mobility lifts and right-hand drive capability
You can also include modifications with SmartLease as long as they can be removed at lease-end without affecting the original condition of the vehicle.
For qualified customers who want to build their fleet, Ally can offer a pre-approved line of credit when you need it – without a fee. With a commercial line of credit, you can:
- Purchase or lease commercial vehicles
- Finance most passenger cars as well as light- and medium-duty trucks
- Preserve your bank credit line for other business needs
- Manage your total financing portfolio regardless of product
To start the financing process, download and complete a commercial line of credit application (PDF 475.8KB).
If you're looking to finance commercial vehicles in the name of your business without affecting your personal credit, Ally features two solutions.
When you want to buy or lease vehicles in the name of your business but need to secure additional financing, you may act as a third-party guarantor. This allows you to keep your name off the title and may keep the debt off your personal credit record. Keep in mind, if your business defaults, you may become liable and the debt may be reported on your personal credit record.
Business name only
If your business qualifies for financing without the owner's guaranty, you can obtain financing in the business name only. This gives you the ability to save your personal credit for other use as well as:
- Build credit in your business name
- Protect yourself from liability related to the operation of the vehicle
Find a local dealer to learn more about how Ally financing works for your business.
A municipal lease-purchase plan is designed for municipalities that intend to own their vehicles. Although the vehicle is titled in the municipality's name, Ally holds the lien. Because your municipality owns the vehicle at lease-end, there are no mileage limits or excess wear charges.
