We complement our core auto inventory financing and real estate loan solutions with a number of financial tools that help keep your business finances fine-tuned. Our Dealer Services representatives work in collaboration with other KeyBank experts to establish the best balance of personal and business investment.

Key enjoys long-standing auto dealer financing relationships with dealerships around the country. Recent successes include:

  • A Michigan-based class 8 specialty truck dealer was able to reduce inventory-carrying expenses, commit to construction of a second facility, and ensure adequate cash flow with special up-fitting financing through a $33 million credit facility.
  • Through acquisition financing of $7 million, a Northeast Ohio automobile dealer was able to buy out his minority partner in two dealerships, ensuring the business remains in the family with his active children.
  • A Washington State auto dealer selling import franchised vehicles from two locations was able to expand and diversify his business via purchase of a domestic franchise dealership at a third location. In addition to providing $8,400,000 in floorplan borrowing facilities for the domestic store, Key is also administering a $1,700,000 construction loan for necessary improvements to one of the import stores.
