At Live Oak Bank, we know that buying or selling an auto dealership can be overly complicated and frustrating. You deserve a bank that makes the lending process simple and clear, so you can achieve your business goals.

Live Oak offers loans for auto dealership franchises in all 50 states. Working with a lender who specializes in financing for auto dealership franchises is key to navigating the complex process of securing the capital you need. Because we work with auto dealership transactions every day, we can anticipate the surprises and challenges you may face, ultimately helping to structure a loan that works for your needs. We understand blue sky value and multiples associated with franchise dealerships, so you don’t have to spend time getting us up to speed on the process.

Whether you want to buy a franchise auto dealership business, sell your existing business, expand to a second or third location, refinance existing business debt or require working capital, Live Oak can be your trusted finance partner.

”The team at Live Oak Bank was willing to help me finance my dealership purchase when no other lender would give it a shot. The most impressive part of my experience was how proactive, organized and knowledgeable they were about the SBA rules and processes. When unexpected bumps did arise, such as a Phase II on the real estate, the team was fast to communicate and reach a quick solution. I would recommend Live Oak as a financing solution to other folks looking to purchase an automotive dealership.”
