Western Equipment Finance is known to have a great customer service team, offering potential clients, and current customers for that matter, great personal one-on-one service.
A downside to Western Equipment Finance is the lack of resources and information on their website. If you compare WEF to many other equipment financial companies in the industry, other company websites are full of resources, tools, and articles to help educate their customers. On top of this, WEF does not discuss any estimates on their rates and fees.

Rates and Fees
Western Equipment Finance does not offer any information regarding their rates and fees, or even estimates. With that being said, if you are interested in their services, you will need to submit an application to receive a quote with their rates and fees. You may also choose to contact their customer-service number or email regarding their estimated rates and fees. Keep in mind, this information will be variable based on credit scores.
If you are interested in one of the many different services or programs offered by Western Equipment Finance, all you need to do is complete a simple application, which can be found on their website. WEF will perform and ask each business owner to submit a credit application, which will be used to determine the financial options and applicable rates. The company mentions that each credit check or decision should only take less than 30 minutes, making it one of the fastest turnarounds in the industry. If approved and options are feasible, funds should be available for equipment within 24 hours.
In our opinion, Western Equipment Financing is a considerable option for any small business seeking equipment financing. WEF offers many different services in efforts to help as many businesses as possible. While the company lacks resources and value on their website, Western Equipment Finance has a stellar customer service team dedicated to helping you.
