Martin’s Stock Haulage partners with PACCAR Financial

PACCAR Financial is dedicated to finding the right finance solution for Australia’s transport businesses. One of those businesses is Martin’s Stock Haulage who can attest to the company’s personalised service and knowledge of the transport industry.

With 86 prime movers Martin’s Stock Haulage runs one of the bigger livestock transport operations in Australia. Based in Scone, New South Wales, the family business maintains depots out of Dubbo and Oakey carting cattle and sheep up and down the Newell Highway where it will divert livestock to South Australia, Victoria and Queensland.

Company Director, Gordon Martin, 80, has partnered with PACCAR Financial, for the best part of two decades. “We’ve had some tough times, and that’s the nature of the industry we’re in, but PACCAR Financial is always there to support us.”

It was a loan from his sister that allowed Gordon to finance his first truck when he established Martin’s Stock Haulage in the Hunter Valley back in 1958. He understands the crucial importance of timely financial assistance.

PACCAR Financial values loyalty and long-term relationships and has financed owners of Kenworth, and later DAF trucks, in Australia for 40 years. It finances trucks and trailers exclusively for customers of PACCAR, and as part of the PACCAR group, has a vested interest in the growth and sustainability of the Australian road transport industry.

PACCAR Financial’s industry leading service levels mean they are trusted to provide the support and information needed to make an informed finance decision. The company offers a wide range of traditional finance products such as Chattel Mortgage and Hire Purchase Agreements. With the addition of its rental and leasing arm, PacLease, it is able to rent trucks to all operators for those peak periods – even just for a day, or while a rig is in for overhaul. PacLease also offers full service lease and maintenance packages allowing you to maximise uptime and productivity so that drivers can continue making their deliveries and supporting your customers.

PACCAR Financial’s boutique offering also means they can structure loans as required, offer seasonal payments for those in the agriculture industry, or make available credit limits to allow for growth. Consistent and reliable, PACCAR Financial continues to support transport companies regardless of economic cycles.

Martin adds, “PACCAR Financial supports us when circumstances need it. We haven’t had to rely on it but they are always open for us to talk to them should we need it,” he says. “The particular thing that I like about it is the very personal service. They’ve been very loyal to us and there’s never been a thing we’ve asked from them they haven’t honoured.”

According to Gordon, the company looks to refresh its Kenworth trucks every eight years, using Hire Purchase funding. He says the strong relationship with PACCAR Financial is because they are easy to work with and flexible. “They provide us with exceptional service. If you cross your ‘t’s and dot your ‘i’s they will go the extra mile.”

Unlike larger finance providers, customers of PACCAR Financial regularly engage with the management team who are actively trying to find the best finance solutions for Kenworth and DAF customers. PACCAR Financial’s managers understand their accessibility is key to understanding the industry and meeting the needs of its customers.
