We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of Business Fuel and the promptness in handling our finance application. We would definitely refer Business Fuel as they were there for us when we needed it most. Their assistance helped us maintain customer relations and ensure our company’s growth going forward.

Business Fuel was very helpful when we approached them. We were in the process of buying new property and had a shortfall on the deposit. We needed the money within 7 days to cover this.
A friend mentioned that I should search for companies that provide funding based on your cashflow. I found Business Fuel online and filled out their online application form. A consultant contacted me within a short space of time and from completing the online application form, my loan had been approved within 2 days with the funds being transferred to our account. My problems were solved, I paid for the property and today we are trading from it. Thanks to Business Fuel our business is solid and growing.

Like any business we have experienced cash flow problems during our quieter periods. Business Fuel was there to rescue our company financially on more than one occasion. They have helped us tremendously to keep our company rolling in very difficult times. Their staff are excellent to work with and very efficient. With just in a few days from application the money was transferred into our account.

Business Fuel is a well organised, friendly and efficient company. We as a small business were in need of a loan to help us during a quiet season and Business Fuel assisted us without any hesitation. The handling of documents by the analyst were excellent and very organised. I would recommend them to any business that may need some cash urgently! Thank you.
