PIB TIP: TRUCK LOAN BASICS: Loans for trucks and other secured loans, such as cars or houses, are lowest because assets are backing them up. A bank’s business loan often is around 1 percent a month or 12 percent annually. That’s where the best credit card rates start, but they’re usually much higher, even 20 percent or more for owner-operators with bad credit ratings. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
