Prefera Application and Funding Process
Credit applications are submitted through industry standard online credit application processes. Prefera is available on Dealertrack and Compass Direct Portal for our Recreational Financing program.
Applications for repair services can take just a few seconds to a few minutes. Applications for Recreational Vehicle Finance typically take a few minutes longer as they require a deeper evaluation of credit and deal structure.
Once we receive all documentation in connection with an agreement, we will make payment to be deposited to your account. You should see that deposit to your account within 24-48 (business) hours after receipt of our notification to you depending on your financial institution.
Prefera offers various tiers of credit and we refer to them as our “P”s of credit. So a P1 is our best tier of credit for your best customers, up to a P4 for customers with a challenged credit history. Not all our tiers of credit are available in all of our programs.
Our rates start as low as just above 10% for our best customers, and go as high as 28% for those customers with more challenging credit situations.
While credit scores can be a good indication of credit, we spend the time to get a better understanding of your customer’s credit story. We look beyond credit scores to the customer’s history, their challenges as well as the deal structure.
In our repair finance category, we finance all makes and models of vehicles, motorcycles, boats, etc., up to a certain percentage of the item’s value over terms of up to 36 months. The repairs must be done at a registered facility by a licensed mechanic and the minimum amount is $500. We do not finance uninstalled parts.
In our recreation/automotive finance category, we will finance all makes and models of new and used motorcycles, ATV’s, side-by-sides, mopeds, e-bikes, PWC, boats, towable trailers, snowmobiles, well…you get the idea! We will finance newer, larger value amounts for terms up to 15 years. The minimum finance amount is $2,000 and we will finance parts and accessories with the purchase, but not independently of a purchase.
In our Motorcycle Lease category, we will finance new motorcycles within the last 2 model years. The minimum amount for lease is $2,000 with terms of up to 36 months. Residual value is determined by Prefera and at end-of-term the bike will be returned to your dealership. This means you will get to put your customer into another new unit, as well as take inventory of the previously leased Motorcycle – a Win-Win!
