Manheim seeking to finance more powersports dealers


Manheim Financial Services (MAFS) is expanding its Specialty division and seeking powersports dealers in need of financing.

The MAFS Specialty division finances heavy truck, motorcycle and RV dealers with tailored floor plan options.

MAFS’ benefits include competitive rates, 100 percent financing of auction purchase price, personalized customer service and extended terms ranging from 120 to 150 days of financing. MAFS also helps dealers in working capital management and provides administrative services.

Our goal is work with Specialty dealers to identify ways our finance programs can help them sell more units.”
