GoGetta Equipment Funding has closed – Refinance now.
Background to GoGetta:
GoGetta catered for small and medium sized businesses who often could not obtain equipment finance through banks or mainstream financiers with ease. Customers got a quick and easy approval process. Established by Silver Chef, a hospitality financier, GoGetta financed vehicles, industrial and fitness equipment via a one-year rental agreements. After the initial period customers could purchase with a rental rebate (known as “Rent-Try-Buy” or rent-to-buy), or roll the contract into a lease agreement. They required no additional security and or director’s guarantees.
GoGetta is now Closed:
Early in 2018 Silver Chef management decided to close the GoGetta business and to exit all their customer contracts. Unfortunately over 50 GoGetta staff have left the business. If you have a current GoGetta finance agreement you may not get the customer support, or financial support you expect, or need. If you have finance with GoGetta, we strongly suggest you get in touch with us to discuss your options for refinancing your GoGetta contract.
As GoGetta made it easier to obtain finance initially, some banks and financiers will not refinance their contracts. Hence this process is not as simple as it should be. However, we have recently assisted a number of GoGetta customers to refinance their equipment or vehicles with some of our other trusted financiers.
NFG Finance has over 40 lenders on our panel, including those who will refinance GoGetta contracts. We have financiers who specialise in refinancing and those who are happy to finance new, used and specialised equipment, from a dealer or a private sale. We can arrange equipment loans, leases, rentals and rent-to-buy arrangements. Whether you are buying, refinancing, or looking for business finance we are ready to assist you. As your finance broker, we can provide finance options from a large number of suitable financiers.
We have recently helped a number of customers to refinance their GoGetta contracts, here are two examples:
Example 1: Customer A was paying just under $800 per week to GoGetta (around $3,500 per month) and had been paying this amount for 18 months. At the rate the payout was decreasing it would have taken nearly five years before they would own the vehicle. We assisted the customer to refinance their GoGetta contract with one of our banks on a streamlined policy. No financials, property backing or deposit was required. Approval was based on their good payment history. They are now paying under $500 per week (around $2,000 per month) and will own the vehicle outright in 18 months.
Example 2: Customer B was paying $300 per week to GoGetta (around $1,300 per month) for a package of specialised equipment they financed when establishing their business. The customer was looking to refinance their GoGetta payout, they also needed some additional equipment to help them grow the business. Recently established, not being property owners, and recently changing from a partnership to a company, they didn’t qualify with mainstream lenders. We assisted by refinancing their GoGetta payout with a package of new equipment. We helped the customer achieve a 48% reduction in payment, inclusive of the new equipment, down to $155 per week. The monthly savings helped to offset the cost of an additional business loan we arranged which enabled them to upgrade their fitout and purchase new stock.
