11.07.2022 by Jack H

Restaurant is delighted to support a restaurateur and new restaurant opening in North London with a logbook loan on his BMW 840i, valued at over £50,000.

The client made a direct approach to after finding us on Google when he searched for short term mezzanine loans. The client said: “As we reached the end of our restaurant build, we were running tight on funds for the finishing touches." We needed to raise £15K quickly, and we needed a mezzanine loan to cover the shortfall. I didn’t want to go back to the bank or the investors, so I decided to use my car as collateral against the loan. He added: “The team at was able to release the £15k the same day." I was able to complete the loan online and receive the cash in my bank account the same day. The customer service was great, and the staff were polite and helpful from start to finish. I would recommend them to any business looking for a loan or some kind of mezzanine funding. is a digital logbook loan lender that operates throughout the UK and provides an excellent small business loan alternative. Our client never needed to travel, as his logbook loan was agreed upon and completed from the comfort of his office.

One hour later, completed a WhatsApp video appraisal of the BMW 840i and issued the loan paperwork. The client e-signed the loan documents and submitted the required supporting documentation via email, and the funds were released to the client’s bank account in a matter of hours.
