They do what they say they are going to do, and that seems to be a rarity in their industry. I shopped our financing needs all over, with more than a dozen lenders over a two week period, and was SHOCKED at how many times I was lied to by the others. BFA got me the best terms and performed exactly the way that they said they would. Next time, no need for me to shop around!

My business with BFA was straightforward and to the point, which is just what I wanted in a merchant advance. The three employees I have interacted with were all courteous professionals and overall I am very happy with their services.

It's been a few months since doing business with Business Finance Advance and I'm happy to report that they live up to their word. As some others have said, the loan process is straightforward and transparent and if you have any questions or doubts the customer service people are more than willing to talk to you. Grateful for the experience, thanks again.

Had the pleasure of taking out a cash advance through Business Finance Advance for my small business. They were able to get me the funding I need to ramp up production here and the turnaround is actually quite fast. So far so good. The employees there have been helpful and respectful, so I imagine the rest of this experience will be too!

Very friendly and hospitable staff. We needed some capital to expand our small business so we contacted BF Advance a few months ago. Believe it or not, the timeline they advertise is pretty on point. They were able to hook us up with a funding plan much quicker than I would have ever believed. The repayment process is pretty transparent, too. Just be sure to ask if you have questions, they are willing to help! Thanks again!

I was in a bind and Business Finance Advance was able to help me out big time. If you know what you're getting into and make your payments on time it is absolutely worth it. Already recommended to a friend.

From start to finish, Business Finance Advance was not only professional, but the entire process was easy. Their staff goes out of their way to make the entire loan process as painless as possible and I really respect that. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who needs emergency funds for their business needs.

I worked with BFA earlier this year to get funds that my business needed to expand our offices. The entire procedure was easier than I thought it would be, which was fine with me! All in all, signed up for the loan and the repayment program and it has been a pretty smooth ride since.

I started my loan online but wanted to reach out to an employee for a little help with the whole process so I gave BF Advance a ring on the phone. The rep that worked with me was awesome and helped me through the entire application. They were even able to answer some of my other general questions regarding the type of loan I was applying for. It made me feel really comfortable with the entire thing. All in all, got approved, got the loan I needed and it didn't take much time at all. Thanks again!

Recently finished paying off the advance I got from BFA earlier this year. Having done business with them for months I can tell you that they are just as they seem. Professional staff that is there to help you and your business out when you need it with a pretty decent number of funding solutions. Thanks and will absolutely recommend to any other business owner.

Happy with my interactions with Business Finance Advance. I was cautious going into it and advised with some friends, but we all agreed that this company seemed legitimate and helpful for my needs. The process of getting approved did not take much time and was mostly harmless and everything I reached out to at the company was knowledgeable and courteous. Would absolutely recommend if you are looking for their type of service.

I have used Business Finance Advance a couple of times now over the course of three years. They are a straightforward group of businessmen that want to help you get the money you need for your business. The application process for their types of loans are pretty straight-forward and don't take much time to understand or complete. It's a good and honest company. I wouldn't be a repeat customer if I thought otherwise.

In terms of getting alternative funding for your business, the staff at Business Finance Advance are a top notch resource. I needed something outside of the realm of a bank loan and the staff here helped me find the perfect solution. They talked me through the different options and helped me pick what is best for me and my company. The thing that was most astounding was how fast it all was. Like, really, instead of it taking months to get funds it only took me about a week. A+ business with a smart and helpful staff.

Listen, these people know what they are doing. I shopped around for a bit before deciding on Business Finance Advance and had made a few phone calls to talk to them before even starting the application process. You get what you expect, as long as you read what you are actually signing up for. If you figure everything out beforehand and plan accordingly, you get (pretty much) exactly what you want. Just do your homework, kids! The application process was a breeze and overall it was nice working with these people.

First off, I would like to say that I am posting this review three months after initially working with Business Finance Advance. At the time I was looking into alternatives from a bank loan and after a doing a bit of shopping around I contacted Business Finance Advance. The first guy I spoke to was courteous and professional, which was a great start. We chatted for a bit about what I will need to do to submit an application and the type of advance I was looking for. From there, it was smooth sailing. Thanks to Business Finance Advance I was able to get the funding I needed outside of a banking institution and the entire experience has been a breeze.

Great experience! I had contacted Business Finance Advance about learning more information and after a week of mulling over my options I contacted them again and went forward with them. I don't think there is any way it could have gone better, pretty much a perfect experience. The entire process was simple and straightforward and their workers helped me along the way. On top of that, it was pretty fast too!

It was swell doing business with this company. Minimal hassle when chatting with them about a loan opportunity and when it came down to it it took significantly less time than attempting to do it through my bank.

I received nice support. Friendly staff, they answered my questions arguably good with no troubles at all. It turned out pretty good, no problems, I filled out the application just as specified and everything went smoothly from there. The rates were fine, all reasonably priced. I would definitely consider them next time. Easy to use tools with reliability and durability. I would use them again in the future with no troubles and problems.

My experience with Business Finance Advance went swimmingly. I was researching different ways to get a small loan for my company and going through the bank seemed like just too much of a hassle. After a few weeks of looking into companies, I reached out to Business Finance Advance. The people that work here were very gracious with their time because I had lots of questions. They helped me feel at ease every step of the way and when it came time to start filling out paperwork I felt very confident in my decision. The process, as others have mentioned, was quite quick. All in all, got the funding I needed for my company and have already paid it off. Great business, great people. Thanks again!

Super nice company and really helpful employees. I had been doing research for about a week trying to figure out the best way to get some funds for my business and I reached out to BF Advance. Their representative walked me through the process, told me what to expect and it was much less of a hassle than dealing with my bank. Everything went super smooth and super quick and I am a happy camper. Would 100% recommend these guys.

Great customer service. Helpful and friendly. Whenever I had a problem they were there for me asking what I needed and if they could help in any way. They were very polite and nothing was too much trouble. You ring up, describe how much you want and what you need it for. They ask you what your timeframe for repayment will be and what interest rate will suit i.e. what package. Rates and terms are both competitive. Rates of interest are low and terms are fair. Repayment period is not too onerous and the whole experience was not stressful... they could not have been more helpful. Rates were easy to find and repayment timeframes. It was a really simple process. They needed to know what the loan was for and our turnover to determine whether it was feasible just to ensure we would not default for our peace of mind.
