Talk to Rangewell – the business finance experts
Want to buy a competitor to grow your ambulance business? Funding can be the biggest barrier. At Rangewell, we can find the solutions.
At Rangewell we recognise your professional status, and we work harder to find you better solutions - which can include 100% finance for many of your needs.
Are you running a successful ambulance business? Acquiring a competitor could help take your operation to the next level
The larger your ambulance business and the more ambulances you run, the more runs you can make and the more profits you may be able to generate. Buying a competitor could be the simplest way to expand your business, giving you more vehicles, territory and contracts, while economies of scale can cut your costs.
But it will inevitably mean a major cost. You will be buying more than your competitor's fleet - you will be acquiring their contracts, staff, premises - and the potential of their business for growth.
At Rangewell, we can help ambulance operators find the funding they need to buy out a competitor.
Remortgaging your depot - releasing the funds to buy a competitor
If you own your depot you may be sitting on the funding you need. Remortgaging your current depot could provide the level of funding required to buy a competitor. Commercial Mortgages work much like residential mortgages and can provide large-scale funding at competitive rates, and let you spread the repayments out over up to 20 years.
Commercial loans for your ambulance business
Another consideration could be a straightforward business loan. There are generally two types of commercial loan - secured and unsecured - which could provide the funding you need.
As the name suggests, Secured Loans must be supported by security that the lender would take and sell if you became unable to make repayments. However, rates can be as low as 2% above base rate and you can have ten or more years to repay.
Unsecured business loans are designed for smaller sums and are repaid in monthly or quarterly instalments over an agreed term under 5 years. Decisions can be fast but you are likely to need to provide a personal guarantee.
Asset Refinance - releasing the investment in your ambulances
Asset Refinance allows you to use the value invested in your business assets - your ambulances - to use again. You essentially sell your vehicles to a finance company. They provide an agreed sum and then let you pay it back while retaining full use of your vehicles.
‘Jigsaw’ Finance - funding designed around you
Acquiring a competitors practice may mean a range of funding is required. We can provide jigsaw finance for your private ambulance business, which is a bespoke package made up of the most appropriate types of funding optimised for each need you have. We have found that it can help access a higher level of funding that could otherwise be provided by a single finance option - and reduce costs.
