Sheffield Financial first brought the power of specialized financing to dealers and the public in April of 1992. Jack Snow and his wife, Bonnie, along with four employees and $3.4 million dollars in loans, grew the business to the point where it has financed over $18 billion in consumer and commercial revolving and installment retail loans for outdoor power equipment, powersports vehicles and one-axle trailers.
“Sheffield Financial was acquired by Branch Banking & Trust (BBT NYSE) in August of 1997.”
BB&T, headquartered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is one of the largest financial services holding companies in the United States, providing you with powerful backing for your financing.
The competitive retail finance programs of Sheffield Financial serves selected quality manufacturers and dealers plus retail customers nationwide. Thanks to outstanding customer service, quick credit approvals, and minimal paperwork that are the cornerstones of the corporation, they’ve developed a competitive advantage that is now your advantage, too. Sheffield offers friendly and professional service unmatched in the industry. As just one example of this commitment to service, they never use voice mail during normal business hours.
You can find Sheffield Financial in a 50,000 square foot facility in the heart of North Carolina. With 215 employees, the facility leaves ample room for future growth and future services they will be able to offer to you.
“Recently, Sheffield Financial celebrated 25 years of providing retail financing on April 1, 2017. Thank you to our valued partners and customers for giving us this opportunity!”

Credential Leasing & Finance originated in 1960 and they are the oldest privately held equipment finance companies under the same ownership in the USA.
Their business started as a complement to a very successful family owned wholesale distributor who wanted to help their dealer base finance the equipment they needed in order to operate their business successfully. It grew into a nationwide company with offices in Harrisburg, PA and in Dandridge, TN.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our rates and terms to make it possible for our customers to obtain virtually any capital equipment.”
Credential is a direct financing source, which means they are self-funded and make all decisions in-house from credit decisions to rates to terms and never have to wait for their ‘financial partners’ to make these decisions for us. What it means to you is that you deal with the same people from initiation of the request to when the agreement is concluded so there are no surprises during the course of the agreement.
Credential has changed their business structure from a family-owned company to that of employee owned. What it means to you is whenever you call and speak to any of their representatives, you are talking to one of the owners of the company.
More and more businesses choose Credential Leasing & Finance because they are tired of the cookie-cutter solutions and want to work with a company that offers an honest, straight-forward approach to financing. At Credential, they are committed to building long-term relationships with each and every one of our clients. They firmly believe in “old school” customer service and traditional values, and they strive to be the partner you turn to for flexible financing solutions that allow your business to grow and thrive. Lastly, it’s worth noting they are able to accommodate start-up businesses as well as sole proprietors.
