Mid-summer specials on leasing and factoring

Since it’s a long weekend where I am (Ontario), I’ll make this short:

For the first two weeks of August:

  1. Save at least 0.5% on your annual lease interest rate, starting from 4%.
  2. Get free EFTs forever (electronic funds transfers = direct deposits) on all factoring (2.99% flat-fee or prime-plus line of credit).

Interested or want to hear more? Call toll-free (1.844.252.0524) , email (, or apply here.

Latest deals, in short

4 Ontario carriers are now promoting our repair loans to their owner-operators and other truck owners, so no more risk from emergency advances in excess of holdbacks.

We’ve funded equipment for several company drivers who are now owner-operators. We’ve even done a couple of new owner-operators who’ve never driven truck before.

We saved 1 carrier from shutting down (their bank bounced them), 1 is saving 3.25% a year on 4 new tractors (that’s saving about $1,600 a month), 2 raised cash by refinancing their equipment, and several have bought used equipment.

There’s more, but I said I would keep it short.

Some humour

Here are some “real” 9-1-1 calls:

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller: Someone broke into my house and took a bite out of my ham and cheese sandwich .
Dispatcher: Excuse me?
Caller: I made a ham and cheese sandwich and left it on the kitchen table and when I came back from the bathroom, someone had taken a bite out of it.
Dispatcher: Was anything else taken?
Caller: No, but this has happened to me before and I’m sick and tired of it!

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is the nature of your emergency?
Caller: I’m trying to reach nine eleven but my phone doesn’t have an eleven on it.
Dispatcher: This is nine eleven.
Caller: I thought you just said it was nine-one-one
Dispatcher: Yes, ma’am nine-one-one and nine-eleven are the same thing.
Caller: Honey, I may be old, but I’m not stupid.

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller: I heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the brown house on the corner.
Dispatcher: Do you have an address?
Caller: No, I have on a blouse and slacks, why?

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What’s the nature of your emergency?
Caller: My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart
Dispatcher: Is this her first child?
Caller: No, you idiot! This is her husband!

And the winner is…………

Dispatcher: 9-1-1
Caller: Yeah, I’m having trouble breathing. I’m all out of breath. Darn….I think I’m going to pass out.
Dispatcher: Sir, where are you calling from?
Caller: I’m at a pay phone. North and Main.
Dispatcher: ! Sir, an ambulance is on the way. Are you an asthmatic?
Caller: No
Dispatcher: What were you doing before you started having trouble breathing?
Caller: Running from the police.

Thank you for driving carefully

Helping you buy or sell equipment

  • Do you have equipment you’d like to sell, but buyers don’t have enough cash?
  • Do you want to buy from a private seller who wants only cash?
  • Do you have an employee who could be an owner-operator, if only they could get financing?
  • Do you want your owner-operator to replace equipment or get an additional unit?
  • Does your bank or leasing company say, “No”?

I can help, at little or no cost to you.

Quick-pay: Want to offer it? Or want to get it?

Do you have carriers or other suppliers who have trouble waiting for you to pay them? Perhaps you are brokering loads and need a quick-pay solution to be competitive.
Or maybe you are the one who is waiting to get paid…

Aquilian has quick-pay solutions that will fit your business and speed up your cash flow.


Thanks for taking the time to read this, and have a great weekend.
