About Advantage Funding
Headquartered in Lake Success, NY, Advantage Funding is one of the largest transportation finance firms in the United States. But to our customers, we’re so much more: Financial partners. Problem solvers. Trusted advisors. We’ve been helping commercial and vocational transportation companies grow for nearly 20 years. Whatever your specialty, from towing to livery, first-response to motor coaches, waste-hauling to vocational trucks, we can help you obtain the financing solutions you need to grow and thrive. Our success is built on three guiding principles:
- Understanding the intricacies of the transportation industry
- Taking a genuine interest in our customers and their needs
- Offering products and services that give those we serve a distinct advantage—regardless of credit history
We know your business. We care about your success. And, we have the flexibility to create solutions for you when banks and others cannot.
At Advantage Funding, we’re committed to being the best at what we do—helping our clients develop, fund and maintain their vehicle and fleet acquisition strategies. We strive to provide the best financing value in the ground transportation industry while building lasting relationships with those we serve. Our customers are vehicle dealers, distributors, manufacturers, and end users who are seeking innovative solutions that banks and other financial institutions cannot provide. Whether you’re in the market for a single sedan or a fleet of vocational trucks, our aim is to provide you with easy financing and leasing programs that improve your profits and productivity. First, we listen carefully to your needs. Then, we put our nearly 20 years of experience to work for you, designing customized leases and loans that help you preserve cash flow and keep your business on the road.
Advantage Funding was founded in 1997 by finance professionals with extensive backgrounds in the transportation industry. With distinct creativity and a hunger for innovation, our founders knew they could bring a fresh perspective to transportation financing customers. Our company started small and through hard work, experienced 20% growth each year for nine consecutive years—steadily adding customers and employees. Key to our growth has been our focus on a personal approach to every transaction and our referrals from satisfied customers. As of July 31, 2015, Advantage Funding became a wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie’s Corporate and Asset Finance group (CAF). Macquarie Group is a global financial services provider with offices in 28 countries.

Today, Advantage Funding has more than 50 employees. Customers range from one-vehicle businesses to companies with large fleets. Despite our rapid growth, we continue to stay true to our original vision: providing flexible financial solutions, delivering timely service, and building long-term customer relationships.
