What Dave needed
Dave Imeson, 28, is a truckie from the Toowomba region, and the truck business is in his blood. He still works part time with his dad hauling grain, fertiliser and the like round the Darling Downs and inner straight, and thanks to some savvy Westlawn Business Financing, he’s recently expanded his equipment and bought a Step Deck. What’s that you ask? It’s truck deck widening – adding a float trailer capable of moving heavy, specialist machinery.
How Westlawn made it happen
Dave said he loves his job. “I love the freedom. I’m not stuck in an office all day but I’m out on the open road. I always have plans to expand my hauling capabilities.”
Because the Step Deck is one expensive piece of equipment, Dave went back to the same place he got his very first personal loan a decade earlier – Westlawn.
“I had a good experience with them way back then, and both my parents have always got their finance and insurance through Westlawn. It’s a family affair.”
Dave had also set up his Business and Life Insurance through Westlawn in previous years, and said he was really happy with that, so the natural choice for him was to go back to Westlawn when it was time to get the business loan for the Step Deck.
Speaking of his Westlawn finance broker, Dave said, “Callum isn’t ‘Banky’, and I can call him up anytime. He’s always available.”
“He took an 800km round trip from Lismore to see me, and explain to me in person, all the paperwork. He let me know all the details of the loan in a way I could easily understand. Nothing was hidden or unclear. Then he took me and mum and dad out for tea. His shout.”
Dave said that the drought has made business really tough in recent times, the pain the farmers are feeling filters right into their industry. So to have backing from Westlawn to grow his business is a really big deal.
In Dave’s words, “Westlawn really get what’s going on in our country. And Callum is a good fella!”
To wrap up
“I’d certainly recommend Westlawn to all my mates for finance, investments or insurance, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else when I look to expand my business more in the future. You just won’t find the service, expertise or care anywhere else.”
