What to Look for in a Factoring Company

Seeking out verified reviews from reputable websites is a great step in finding the right factoring company for your business. A company’s rating on Trustpilot is an excellent indicator of the quality of the service. 

However, the ratings for these top freight factoring companies don’t tell you everything. It’s important to read the most recent negative reviews. This will give you a look into what those users value. Then you can evaluate if that aspect of the service is important to you.

Here are some other things to consider when searching for a factoring service:

  • Contract term: before signing anything, take a look at how long you will be in the contract, what it will cost you to leave, and how to give notice if you don’t want it to renew.
  • Total cost: don’t be fooled by a super low factoring rate. It’s important to understand what additional fees the company will charge and if there are any special conditions for keeping the rate, like volume minimums.
  • Technology: ask your sales representative to show you a demo or tutorial of how to submit invoices on their platform. A highly responsive mobile app is a plus!
