From what I have seen, those that have compared have saved their departments considerable sums of money."

Convenience

"Our loan was a refinance, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the service and convenience. The rate was so competitive, and we liked that we were dealing with an institution with which our personnel were already members. It just made sense."

Personal Service

"The LGFCU Commercial Lending were very pleasant to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything in order to get our new ambulance financed. During this time I was hospitalized with a brief illness. When Bill found out that I was in the hospital, he made sure every major and minor detail was taken care of. He worked very, very hard to make sure our loan was processed in a timely manner. Thanks to Bill at LGFCU Commercial Lending for all his hard work and effort, we were able to receive our ambulance on time."

2008 - Financed the purchase of a new Chevrolet C4500 ambulance
"Our rescue squad recently purchased a new ambulance to bolster our aging fleet. We were able to qualify for a matching grant through the State Fire Marshall's Office in the amount of $25,000. Without the help we got from LGFCU [Commercial Lending] we would not have been able to make this purchase. Bill Carter was wonderful to work with, he always returned my calls with answers to my questions. He was friendly, courteous, and prompt during the entire process and was instrumental in making the loan process flow seamlessly. I will gladly recommend LGFCU [Commercial Lending] to all the local fire and EMS agencies for any financial needs that may arise in their organizations, and I will be sure to remember LGFCU [Commercial Lending] for any of our future needs here at Gates County Rescue Squad. Thanks so much for your help, I look forward to doing business with you in the future."
