Bank Direct delivers when it comes to your financing needs

BankDirect assisted me with a finance loan for my insurance premium. Starting a small business with a large insurance premium can be tough, especially when you have to pay the premium in full before binding coverage. BankDirect was able to help me finance the premium and break it out into nine monthly payments. They paid the insurance broker in full and all I had to do was make my monthly premium payment. It greatly reduced the start up cost. The fees and interest were reasonable and I would definitely do business with them again if I needed assistance with my annual premium.
