“Thanks to ForwardLine for all you've done for Pepper Palace. You have helped us grow from one store to 12 in under 3 years. As we move into the future, ForwardLine will remain our first source of borrowing.You guys are a great financial resource for small businesses. Jeff and Dave have been great as has the rest of the team.”
~ Craig Migawa | Pepper Palace
“Working with ForwardLine was simple and easy. The process was minimal and the people were great to work with. My business is seasonal and it helped us get through the slower months during the winter. We will definitely do business again in the future.”
~ Jeffrey J. Lencioni | Docks Bar & Grill
“I liked several things about my experience with ForwardLine. I felt that they were sincerely helpful and friendly. ForwardLine’s paperwork, approval and verification process was quick and not excessively involved. The terms are reasonable and the cost is less than another similar funding company I looked at. They helped me get a jumpstart on purchasing new inventory to get the season started for my gallery and gift shop business.”
~ Matthew Steinbrueck | Ravens Next Treasure
“When a company is a great company you know you will go back to them and that is just what we did. Our first experience with ForwardLine was when we wanted to upgrade our showroom. The process was made so simple by our Senior Merchant Consultant, Scott, we couldn’t have been happier. The follow up by our Merchant Support Specialist, Amon, was excellent and we were truly impressed with the professionalism and outstanding customer service by both of them. There was no other choice except ForwardLine when we decided to borrow again. We would highly recommend trying ForwardLine if you find yourself in need of funds. We know you will not be disappointed.”
~ Jody Miller | Alber’s Fireplaces
“We were finding it difficult to obtain funds to keep our business going during the hard economical times. ForwardLine came to our rescue with honest and friendly personnel who did exactly what they said they were going to do. From sales to underwriting to processing support, they all did their jobs excellently.”
~ Lorraine DiMaio | The G Boys Garden & Christmas Center
“ForwardLine has been a true life saver for my business. When the economy took a downturn, I found that I needed some financial help to get me through the tough times. Getting that help from ForwardLine was the best decision I ever made! It helped me through those times and beyond. The representative that I dealt with turned what could have been an unpleasant experience into a positive situation for me.”
~ Medina McCormick | Dina’s Sandwitch
“After being turned won by two banks that I have worked with for 20+ years (with whom I never missed a payment, was never late, etc.) I was willing to try almost anything to keep my business of 27 years going. I got many, many offers from various credit card companies, but after comparing rates, I chose ForwardLine. The whole process was comparatively easy after the runaround the banks gave me, and the funding was quick. The support personnel were fantastic, too. James and Jeff were always available during the whole process and after. They truly know the meaning of customer service. I can honestly say if either of my big name deposit banks came to me on bended knee and offered me a loan, I would choose ForwardLine. In my opinion, ForwardLine is today’s answer to small business survival, because those big name banks could not care less.”
~ Linda Keenan | California Drawstrings
“I have been a salon owner in Saint Louis, Missouri for over 13 years now. I have been approached by many different companies in the past offering financing based off future credit cards sales. My accountant and other financial professional had advised me not to engage in those deals.
Last month our sign went out and we have needed new chairs and equipment for some time. We have a great growing business, but cash flow for a business sometimes doesn’t really allow for huge amounts of money to go out at once. Three days later we were contacted by Adam at ForwardLine. I knew that this company felt different. They explained and answered every question I had, did everything they said they would do, when they said they would do it. I appreciate integrity and ForwardLine met and exceeded every expectation. Adam was the best.
I look forward to working with them in the future and consider them a business partner. Furthermore, I didn’t’ have to go through the bank process of endless paperwork.”
~ Michael Abney | Salon Dacota
“It’s truly refreshing to have someone be totally upfront and honest. The process was very painless and very quick. I was hesitant on changing credit card processors but the transition was very smooth and ForwardLine was able to match the great rates that I already had. Everything was a pleasure unlike the painstaking paperwork you go through with banks – only to end up being denied in the end. I highly recommend ForwardLine for cash flow needs when time is of the essence.”
~ Thomas Clemons | Chelsea Village Hardware
“ForwardLine was very helpful when times got tough this winter (due to having a business in a seasonal town). We appreciate their help and have nothing but kind words to say about their staff.”
~ Antonio Buto | Casa Del Dolce
“I would like to extend a very big “Thank You” to Leonard and ForwardLine for their immediate assistance to all my questions and concerns. Thanks again for going the extra mile, it is very rare these days.”
~ Virginia Gonzales | Joe Koen & Son Jewelers
“Everyone who handled our account was on top of things throughout the whole process. It is very gratifying to us to have been treated in such a considerate, attentive and timely manner. We acknowledge Michael and everyone involved for making the process such a positive connection with ForwardLine. Merci beaucoup!”
~ Fred Brantley | Natural Garden and Nursery
“I want to thank ForwardLine for their support. It has helped our business to improve by allowing us to buy more inventory and soon move to a bigger lot. And they have an excellent customer service department.”
~ Naila Kasabri | International Auto Body
“I’ve been in business for many years. In the last three years, due to the current economy and very tight lending, my business needed some upgrades in equipment. We had gone through a different merchant cash advance service the first time and while was received the funding, the procedures and paperwork were a headache. This time we went through ForwardLine and it was very simple and fast. We started on Monday and the funds were in my account on Friday. The entire staff, especially my consultant Joe, was very helpful and professional. I would recommend ForwardLine to anyone.”
~ Chuck Altamore | Stillwaters Food & Spirits
“ForwardLine’s efforts toward helping us secure financing were unceasing and allowed us to meet our time table of much-needed renovations prior to the season beginning. I cannot thank Joe and the other members of the team enough for their help in securing us this much appreciated financing. Thank you everyone at ForwardLine for your splendid work.”
~ Beverly Bartel | Apree Salon Day Spa
“I would like to thank Joe for making my experience with ForwardLine very easy and understandable. Everyone I worked with there was very helpful. I will be working with ForwardLine in the future.”
~ Angelo Spagnolo | I Pub LLC
“Anytime I have an issue of any kind, ForwardLine takes care of it. I have never worked with a credit card processing company that has had such a personal, one-on-one attention to detail as ForwardLine (and especially Leonard).”
~ Matthew Llewellyn | 23rd Street Brewery
“ForwardLine provided the needed financial help just as we were finding doors closed at traditional funding institutions. We own a grocery store and one year into the recession we were seeing cash flow shrink as more and more vendors tightened net 20 or net 30 terms. We knew we could balance our inventory to reflect the new consumer demand, but needed cash flow reserves to handle the transition and to continue to capitalize on special buys as they occurred.
Our credit card processing rates were quite good so we were hesitant to switch companies as part of the process, but quickly discovered we should have been with ForwardLine and Leonard all along. The process was far easier working with ForwardLine and we finally discovered a service provider who responds immediately, completes their work in a timely manner and provides easy access to our account information. We highly recommend ForwardLine and we look forward to a continued partnership.”
~ Greg Simone & Gerold Dennett | Crouch Merc Market
“My name is John Kim from New York. I would like to take this opportunity to share my great experience with ForwardLine and how I became a repeat client over the years.
I took out financing from ForwardLine twice in 2009 and 2010. Unlike other big banks, I was not required to fill out endless paperwork and was able to get approved in less than a week. What’s amazing is the fact that from filling out the application to getting a check only took about 10 days.
Moreover, Scott, my account manager, constantly updated me throughout the application process and was very supportive whenever I had a question. Indeed, he was very professional and serous about helping me and my business.
If you are thinking about applying for business financing, I would strongly recommend ForwardLine to you. Needless to say, they are reliable and trustworthy, and, most of all, they have great customer service.
I thank ForwardLine and Scott for their commitment in helping small business owners like me.”
~ John Kim | New Mimi Nail
“I would describe my opinion of ForwardLine as excellent, especially my experience with Michael and Elizabeth. They were very well-prepared to work with me as a client. To them and everyone else, I wish you the best and many thanks for your assistance. I feel 100% satisfied, thanks again for your help.”
~ Edel Toste-Castillo | Cuban Bakery
“From the first phone call it has been a pleasure to deal with everyone at ForwardLine. The process was hassle-free and quick. We appreciate all their help and look forward to having a long professional relationship with ForwardLine.”
~ Diana Fagan | Same Day Fuel Oil
“Everyone was very polite and informative. I was never made to feel as though my questions were not worth answering. Everyone was prompt and fulfilled their responsibilities in a timely manner. All and all it was a good transaction experience.”
~ Laurie Barrett | The Birdwalk
“After only one phone call and a few faxes, you have the money. Nothing could be easier. I’m very happy with ForwardLine’s service and would recommend them to other business owners.”
~ Geoff Merritt Salon | Geoff Merritt Salon
“Getting funded with ForwardLine was a really easy process.
We had worked with another company and the repayment period was set for six to eight months. The costs were 10%-17% more than ForwardLine and it defeated the purpose because we did not have much left over in our bank accounts. We like the flexibility of the extra time to payback and the savings when you payback sooner.
We also find that the credit card transactions take half the time to process than with our old merchant services.
We were able to purchase new equipment for our business and add extra services that will bring in more revenue.
We are excited with our business relationship with ForwardLine. They are totally professional. We recommend ForwardLine to any business owner that needs funding for expansion, equipment, renovations, or to payoff some bills.”
~ Alma Burgos | Tiger Lily Express Inc.
"I would like to inform you that Joseph went above and beyond his duties to make me feel comfortable and confident in doing business with ForwardLine. I would definitely inform other business associates of my experience.
This financial transaction will help immensely with our remodeling.”
~ Gus Pappas | Palos Garden
“I am just finishing my third financing with ForwardLine this month and the relationship has been nothing but positive. We are a family-owned auto repair shop and have used the proceeds to acquire state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to enable us to repair almost anything that comes along. The repayment schedule based on monthly volume was perfect for us as we are sort of seasonally-based and could not be sure our business would grow on a steady basis.
Well, even though we do not advertise and all of our new work is based on word-of-mouth, we have almost doubled our gross sales. We were able to pay off our last loan in half the time we had figured, and that was during what we call the “slow season.”
I could not imagine financing new equipment any other way. Although I may not be a real tough bargainer when it comes to buying equipment, I have been able to buy the best there is at a very good price as I am able to pay in full for the equipment up front. The money I have saved offsets a lot of interest costs.
As I said, working with the staff at ForwardLine is nothing short of a pleasure. I recommended them to a fellow shop owner who is also very pleased with the service.”
~ Andrew Schrank, President | ASC Automotive, Inc.
“There are a great number of credit card advance companies out there today. ForwardLine was truly a professional organization, easy to work with, and very understanding. The financing came at a time that allowed me to move my business forward and gain an advantage against my competitors. I highly recommend ForwardLine to anyone.”
~ DJ Denn | Godfather’s Pizza
“A simple and hassle-free way to get quick money to support your business from very knowledgeable and friendly people!”
~ Ken Poston | Tender Loving Childcare Inc.
“ForwardLine helped tremendously in keeping our business viable during a difficult time when traditional lenders refused to help. In addition to the funding, ForwardLine associates seemed to understand our position and they were always ready to assist when called upon. I would recommend ForwardLine as part of a comprehensive business plan to anyone in need of financial assistance.”
