“Top job from Aston! He found me a deal for my New Refrigerated Freezer Vans that was both competitive and had a low initial deposit, so it didn’t affect my cash flow. The purchase was made during COVID-19 with a lot of contact restrictions in place, but Aston & Paul at BHRV Refrigerated Vehicles made the whole process easy. I’ll be in contact with them again when purchasing any new vehicles. Thanks again”
“Aston was a great help finding us finance on our 1995 New Holland Combine Harvester. Even though it is an older piece of machinery – 25 years old, he managed to get us a competitive deal and also came to meet us in person to make the paperwork process easier. Thanks again Aston”
“I was introduced to Aston by one of my good suppliers of equipment – CBL and from the off, he was prompt to find me a competitive finance package for my New Takeuchi Excavator. Since then he has financed a number of assets for me, which has helped my company grow, whilst assisting with cashflow. I look forward to working with Aston again on any future projects we have.”
“Aston at First Business Finance was a great help finding finance for our new Teupen Leo 21GT tracked access platform. Finance was tricky as we purchased the machine directly from the factory in Germany and in these uncertain times, other brokers shied away from the proposition or increased the cost of repayments to cover the risk. First Business Finance found us a reasonable rate and helped arrange a VAT deferral to ease our cash flow. The machine has been put straight to work on tree contracts across Norfolk and with its unrivalled reach and boom configuration will be sure to increase the safety and productivity of our work force.”
“Alice at First Business Finance helped us at Scott Robinson Performance Nutrition Ltd to purchase our new gym equipment. From taking our details, she had the deal agreed, signed and paid within a week. This ensured we were able to offer our new services to our athletes asap. Training world class boxers and premier league footballers – its essential for me to be ahead of the game in terms of the kit and the services we can provide. Couldn’t be happier with how easy everything was. Thanks again Alice.”

Aran Caldwell – Director
“I was put onto Aston by Alex at Alfa Access when enquiring about a New Teupen Tracked Access Platform. After providing some very competitive figures and numerous options, he came down to meet with me on the demo of the new equipment. From then he got an approval in place over 6 years, working around my budget, whilst benefiting my company with the finance facilities tax benefits. I would highly recommend Aston to any business that wants a personal, competitive, quick & easy finance solution.”
Darren Keogh – Director
“We were a relatively new company when we first got introduced to Aston, so knew it would be hard for anyone to get us funding on some new equipment. However, he managed to get us placed with there own in house funder – First Business Securities Ltd which not only got us on the road to where we are now, but saved us a lot of money in the long run through cutting out expensive hire costs. Thanks to Aston, Emdec Construction Ltd has been able to purchase numerous pieces of equipment and fulfill new/existing contracts.”
“After having a not so good experience with another finance company, I wanted someone that I could pick up the phone and talk to, instead of being passed around the office to no avail. I was then put in touch with Aston through BHRV, and in which he quickly worked to find my company a finance facility tailored to my requirements. I couldn’t be happier with the service I got from Aston, the First Business Finance Team and the supplier of my New Refrigerated Vehicle, BHRV.”
“Aston was very helpful from our initial introduction, advising me on the best options for my company when looking for finance on our New Takeuchi TB250-2. The options he gave me were varied & structured around our current requirements, looking at what best suited our business needs. Once we decided on the best option for us, within 24 hours Aston came back to me with a brilliant acceptance & rate for our current business situation. Not only was working with all of the First Business Finance Team a very easy & smooth experience, but Aston personally took the time to come down to my office and meet with me.”
“I have been working with Dave for nearly 4 years now and he always manages to get me the right finance package.
No matter the age of the vehicle or type of the asset. He has financed items that my previous finance partners wouldn’t even bother to consider.
First Business are fast, friendly and get the job done. I do regularly recommend them to my contacts and I’m very sure SPH Plant Ltd will be working with First Business Finance for many years to come.”
Paul Dawber – Director
“This is the second time using Aston’s services and again, he was on the ball, quick, and got me a better deal than elsewhere. I couldn’t really ask for more and will 100% recommend him to anyone I know, for either the financing of prestige vehicles or any other business finance.”
Anthony Luff – Director
“As a new business, we have been investing in new equipment so when we approached Tom at Pro align for a new Hunter wheel alignment machine, he put us in touch with Aston at First Business finance after receiving a very expensive quote elsewhere. I knew he had his work cut out given the circumstances, but nevertheless, he was able to find a funder that would work with us and understand we are a growing business, as well as securing a brilliant rate. From the first time I made the enquiry to the end, I have received nothing but a professional service from both Aston & Tom and would have to say it was one of the easiest transactions! Aston also popped in to say hello and we are nowhere near his work, so that was a really nice personal touch and is clear to show that he is also interested in forging a relationship with us. This is why I wouldn’t hesitate to call him if I was looking to finance another purchase in the future. Aston would come up as one of the people we could trust to recommend.”
“Brilliant service from Aston. He is always at the end of the phone no matter what time of day and I hope to do a lot more business with him in the future.”
“Alice helped us at Premier Print to purchase our new Mimaki Printer. As a relatively new company, finance was not the most straight forward, but she went out of her way to explore all options and secured a finance plan which suited our needs exactly. From acceptance, Alice came to sign up the deal herself and the kit was delivered the same week. This ensured we were able to offer the relevant services straight away which greatly benefitted our sales. We cannot recommend Alice and First Business Finance enough.”

“Signmaster Systems Ltd has worked with First Business Finance for over a decade! Happily passing our clients over knowing that they are contacted quickly, professionally and in a friendly but knowledgeable manner. We have always been very confident that First Business will provide our clients with the best options available in the finance market, helping them purchase our equipment in a way that suits their business. We are constantly approached by other finance companies, but always say no. We had used various other companies before we found first business. David Jordan and his team instantly won us over and we have never looked back . First business have always been dependable, honest, provided great rates and always looked after us and our customers.”
“We are partnered with First Business Finance purely because of the brilliant service our customers get from Aston and the vast array of funders the company has to hand, offering the best finance solutions on the market. Aston is quick to respond to any request that either BHRV or our customers have, and works on a more personal level than the other finance providers we have used in the past. He often meets with our customers in person to make the paperwork process easier and I am confident they are in safe hands from start to finish.”
