Following our successful debut as sponsors of the 2018 Recovery Tow Show, it seemed the logical decision to continue our support and sponsorship of this prestigious event into 2019. Here at Creative we couldn’t be more pleased of how successful this second show has been for us, we were made to feel so welcome again. Nick Phipps has to be credited with running his first Professional Recovery Tow Show to an exceptional standard, the transition from Paul Gregory to Nick seemed to go seamlessly – Well done Nick!
This year for the first time Creative was asked to participate in the business seminar and our MD Mike Lowe and Sales Manager Steve Blake, took to the stage to talk a little bit about how we have been working with recovery operatives over this last year and adding value to their businesses and supporting the industry with any financial requirements. The presentation also included three real life recovery customer case studies of current live deals over the last twelve months. These scenarios were specifically selected as it was felt most recovery operatives would have been able to draw some similarities and comparisons to their own business from these examples.
Creative have also been carrying out research and analytics to continually improve our service to this sector, so for this years show we were delighted to launch the new recovery industry section of our website and our sector rebrand to Tow Truck Finance www.towtruck.finance we have been delighted at the response of this so far and will continue to make changes according to customer requirements and feedback.
The first day was predictably very busy, we were delighted to be meeting with existing customers, other exhibitors and a very healthy mix of new customers too. Everything was more familiar to us this year and it was great to see so many people actually seeking us out and visiting our stand with a specific requirement. Following the last 18 months of getting to know this industry even more, working hard to establish and develop relationships with its key players and campaign figureheads, Creative feel we can really add benefit to operatives working within this sector. In addition to our continued support of the show itself, this year we have supported the launch of the Professional Recovery Operatives Federation (PROF), which was held at the houses of Parliament in February, we were also the main sponsors of the Bright Lights Gala Dinner organised by our friends at Dynes in April in support of RISC, The Recovery Tow Show Roadshow at Brooklands, Surrey in June and we continue to support as a stakeholder member of Slow Down Move Over (SDMO) too. Since last year we can firmly say that Creative are fully committed to this industry and its main causes.
The Charity Gala dinner, held after a productive first day at the show gave us the perfect excuse to let our hair down and party the night away, Peaky Blinders style! Creative were delighted to include representatives from three of our funding panel, established customers, new prospects and industry contacts as guests to our tables to enjoy the evening with us – until the blackout at 11pm that was! Thank goodness for the Creative illuminated drink crate on each of the tables, these provided excellent guiding lights back to the hotel as well as carrying back the Peaky Blinders themed beers and lagers from the Sadler’s brewery.
Since the show we have certainly seen an upturn in recovery sector business again, originating from a mixture of existing customers, contacts we made at the show, new companies that attended the show or enquiries from the visibility across all the social media platforms. Creative are confident that we can continue to be the first point of contact for any finance requirements within the recovery industry, our diverse range of products and credit appetite from multiple funders, along with our personal approach, provide the perfect combination to satisfy all funding requirements within the sector. This last year has certainly seen us develop as a ‘go to’ information provider for sector specific funding and our appetite to continue working with this industry means we strive to maintain this position.
Of all the products we have that are tailored to the recovery industry, since our first show in 2018 we have had the most take up on refinance of existing assets and up to 7 year funding on used vehicles.
We have also brought on board new funders to our specifically selected panel who we believe have appetite for the specific requirements of this industry moving forward.
So in short if you are a blue chip customer with a full suite of options available to you or not yet a household name, fed up of being overcharged or receiving an unsatisfactory service from our competitors, we encourage you to approach us to give us a try and provide you with an exceptional service and a free, no obligation quote.
As you will know from our involvement with the show since 2018, Creative are all about being visible, we pride ourselves on meeting 95% of our customers personally and get to know the individual requirements of each customer before we offer information on the different options available.
Our team are waiting to help and support you with your next finance requirement and we are certainly feeling the passion shared by each of you about this sector, please do give us a call to discuss any requirement you have now or in the future, we can help and will be delighted to meet with you to discuss your individual requirement.
Creative are also delighted to announce that we have agreed to continue our sponsorship of the Recovery Tow Show into 2020, which will be the 10th Anniversary show and promises to be the best show yet! We hope that this reiterates our commitment to this industry and providing funding support for growing businesses.
Mike Lowe, MD of Creative Funding Solutions said, ‘We are absolutely delighted with the response we have had following our decision to be the main show sponsor for the second consecutive year, we were once again made to feel so welcome at the show and the Gala dinner. We really feel that we have gained so much knowledge of your industry over the last 18 months and it is important to us that we support the financial needs of limited companies, sole traders and causes associated with the recovery sector as much as possible. Coming back to the show for the second year and receiving such a warm welcome was the affirmation I needed to show that Creative has made a real impact on the recovery industry and it’s attitude to finance’
