With its Ready To Work line-up of commercial medium and heavyweight trucks, the manufacturer will encourage these businesses to became active participants in the economy.

Small to medium businesses that are well established with a proven track record and pass a revised credit check process have the option of a rental agreement off their balance sheet, which means it can be written off as a monthly expense and not an asset on their books.

Says Craig Uren, Isuzu Senior Vice President SACU Revenue Generation: “Isuzu’s Ready To Work portfolio of commercial vehicles showcases pre-built trucks with a variety of bodies so business owners are able to generate revenue almost immediately. Coupled to our unique rental offer, this represents a game-changing moment for access to the trucking economy for small businesses.”

The rental truck programme, formed in partnership with Isuzu Finance, provides peace of mind as ownership rests with the bank, and qualifying small businesses pay a monthly rental based on the selected truck, application and period of the rental. Businesses can choose between a minimum of 36 months and a maximum of 60 months.

“Falling outside of the National Credit Act, this is an option that really has the customer in mind. Small businesses seldom have the capital outlay to buy and own assets like trucks, so this allows them to focus on their business instead of worrying about how to purchase a truck,” says Marcois van Staden, Head: Isuzu Finance.
