Firestone Financial Announces Firestone Xpress (Credit Approval and Documentation Within Hours)

Needham, Mass. – Firestone Financial is now offering customers credit approval and documentation within just a few hours for transactions under $100,000 in the amusement and vending industry. This streamlined process also applies to the establishment of guidance lines of credit.

Firestone has simplified the application process so that all that is required is a phone call with a member of the dedicated Firestone X-press team and a copy of the invoice. In addition to providing a streamlined process for individual loans, customer may opt to establish a guidance line of credit for future requests. Establishment of the line does not carry any cost or obligation to the customer; standard loan terms and conditions will apply only when the line is used.

The Firestone Financial X-press team is available live weekdays to expedite requests under $100,000 from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm EST, customers can also apply at their convenience anytime by completing a credit application and sending it in via email or fax, the application may be found here. The team includes sales, credit and operations staff including 15 year veteran Pete Aldrich. Sal Cifala and Spencer Norton will continue to service larger transactions.

David Cohen, President and CEO, commented, “Our customers deserve industry leading service; in the past few months we have created this team, improved our technology, and simplified our process and paperwork to deliver the best offering. Whether someone is looking to finance just a few pieces or a route purchase we want the customer to feel that Firestone has made the process as seamless as possible.”

The company implemented the enhanced offering in June and the early results from operators, manufacturers and distributors have all been very positive. “Firestone really stepped up for us on the last day of our quarter. We had a customer’s request approved and shipped within just a few hours” said Jamie Sura, Senior Vice President of Sales at TouchTunes. “I’m really impressed with how fast Firestone was able to turn around my loan,” commented Marty McAndrew, owner of Advance Amusements of NW FL and a longtime Firestone customer. “The team’s been amazing to work with and it shows just how much Firestone cares about making their customer experience better and better.”
