Insurance

Insurance

When does the insurance certificate need to be in to Advance Acceptance?

We prefer that the certificate be sent in with all other documents sent to the account manager. If that isn’t possible, as soon as possible thereafter, to make sure that customers are protected from loss or damage.

Will Advance Acceptance contact the agent?

We will follow-up with the agent to obtain the correct documents, but the customer must make an initial contact with their agent to add the equipment to their policy.

Additional information can be found here.

What types of financing does Advance Acceptance offer?

What types of financing does Advance Acceptance offer?

Advance Acceptance offers a large variety of financing options. We offer EFAs (equipment finance agreements), purchase-option leases, and municipal leases. We also offer flexible terms, such as seasonal and deferred payment options.

What is an EFA?

What is an EFA?

EFA stands for equipment finance agreement. Unlike a lease agreement where the lessor retains ownership of the equipment and the lessee may have the option to purchase at the end of the term, under an EFA the borrower retains ownership of the equipment financed throughout the term of the agreement.

An EFA may be the perfect solution for those who have experienced a difficulty regarding the end of term payment price, at the end of a lease agreement in the past. With an EFA, since there is no purchase option, there is no difficulty — you already own the equipment.
