August 07, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Edmonton, Alberta, August 7, 2012 Patron West, a trusted Canadian equipment leasing brokerage, has recently published an article entitled 'How Auction Financing Works'.

The article is meant to give clients a thorough understanding of the auction financing process so, that they can secure the equipment they need at an affordable price.

In the article, Patron West explains in detail how to get registered at the auction, what to do after a successful bid and the time frame clients can expect before they can come pick up their equipment.

Patron West also cites a few tips to help buyers better navigate the auction process. The brokerage suggests:

  • Calling well in advance to get financing pre-approved
  • Staying on top of equipment auction dates in Canada and the U.S.
  • Using the auction website to learn as much about the equipment as possible
  • Trying online equipment auctions if it is not possible to physically attend a certain auction
  • Deciding on equipment needs and a spending limit beforehand and sticking to them.
  • Remembering that a Patron West credit approval is still good after the auction so purchases can be made anywhere for up to 60 days.
