Types of Business Loans For Auto Repair Businesses

Revenue-Based Financing

Also called a business cash advance, revenue-based financing enables business owners to borrow money based on future income. The borrowed amount is then repaid in daily or weekly installments.


1-15 months

$1 million

Debt Financing

Debt financing is a traditional loan product, as borrowers receive the full loan amount and then make regular monthly payments to repay the loan principal in full. Auto repair shop owners have two options when it comes to debt financing: term loans and SBA loans. 


6 months-25 years

$5 million

Line of Credit

A business line of credit works the same way as a credit card, but the borrowing amount and interest rates are often much better. Because the money can be used for any business expense, a line of credit is a helpful financial tool for businesses with intermittent cash flow issues. 


6-24 months

Up to $250,000

Equipment Financing

Equipment financing is a special type of financing used specifically to purchase equipment. If you opt for a leasing agreement, the equipment itself will serve as collateral for the loan.


1-5 years

$5 million

Starting a Successful Auto Repair Shop


Auto repair shop loans are loan products that can be used to aid in the running or expansion of auto repair shops. Once the loan product is received, regular monthly payments are required until the loan is paid off. 


To get auto repair business loans through the Lendio platform, minimum requirements start at:

  • A credit score minimum of 600 
  • Monthly revenue of $8,000 or more
  • At least six months time in business


Auto repair business loans can be used for any business-related expense. They can be used for large asset purchases or general capital needs. The one exception is equipment financing, which can be used only to purchase the specified equipment.

Not only is the application much faster and easier to complete, but borrowers have access to a multitude of lenders at once and, after choosing an offer, can receive the full loan amount in less than 24 hours. 

An SBA loan is insured by the federal government, but is processed and funded by traditional lenders. Borrower eligibility requirements are harder to meet, and the processing time is much longer than an online loan, but rates are often lower and the loan amounts are often much higher. However, borrowers with strong credit profiles will likely be offered great loan terms, regardless of where they look.  

Business owners have three types of SBA loans they can apply for: microloans, 504 loans, and 7(a) loans. Microloans are for small capital needs between $500 and $50,000. 504 loans are intended for large asset purchases and come in amounts up to $5 million. 7(a) loans also come in amounts up to $5 million, but are intended for general capital needs.
