CAN CAPITAL

Established in 1998, Georgia-based CAN Capital offers business loans ranging from $2,500 to $150,000 or more with terms from 4-24 months. CAN Capital focuses specifically on small business owners, with tools, resources, and blog posts directed towards helping them to grow their businesses and succeed.

Unfortunately, CAN Capital is not one of the lenders in our review who make business loans to startups: they require borrowers to have been in business for at least four months and have monthly revenue that is relatively stable.

The application process is relatively simple and is comparable to other lenders' in our review: enter basic information about the business, such as the gross monthly sales, number of months or years in business, and the business' location. Once the application is approved, funds can be sent is as little as two business days.

While CAN Capital doesn't publish their APR during any part of quote or application process, there is a calculator that allows prospective borrowers to enter the amount of their monthly sales, the desired loan amount and term, and see the weekday payment, principal amount and the total repayment amount. Of course, this is just an estimate; the final loan offered would naturally depend on the business' history, creditworthiness, and actual loan terms. Customers should make sure to read the fine print: both when we ran our own theoretical scenarios and when we considered CAN Capital's reviews, we saw interest rates around 30%, all the way up to 85%! Given that CAN Capital focuses on small businesses, particularly those who haven't been able to qualify for a traditional loan, we wonder if such high interest rates will actually help a business to succeed instead of being overburdened with (additional) debt.

Another possible downside of having a business loan with CAN Capital is the effect on one's personal credit; one customer complained that CAN Capital pulled a hard inquiry on their personal credit every six months for the duration of their loan, even though the customer had no late payments or any other issues with the loan.

On the other hand, CAN Capital has been accredited with the Better Business Bureau since 1998 and carries an A+ rating. In our opinion, this carries a great deal of weight and would indicate that, overall, CAN Capital is doing a good job of providing loans to almost 140,000 small businesses in ways that are honest and trustworthy.

CAPITAL LOAN HUB

CapitalLoanHub claims to connect businesses with lenders for no-collateral business loans up to $500,000. While this may be accurate, we found too few details about CapitalLoanHub to know if they are a trustworthy partner for a process that involves such a large amount of money and personally identifiable information.

For example, most reputable lenders and referral services have multiple ways to communicate, whether that's via live online chat, a toll-free number, or all of the above. The only contact methods offered by CapitalLoanHub are an online contact form and an email address - despite being told in the FAQ that prospective customers can call or visit one of their storefronts with any questions. Given that they list their physical address as being on the island of Nevis in the Caribbean, we feel that most American-based businesses will be uncomfortable sharing their private information with CapitalLoanHub, even just to be connected with another (hopefully reputable) lender. There is no guarantee that their information will be kept secure during the process of matching them with possible sources for a business loan.

Even on CapitalLoanHub's "Do I Qualify?" page, there are no specifics as to their lenders' requirements. Do businesses have to be in operation for a certain length of time, have a minimum level of monthly income, or provide a Social Security Number for at least one of the applicants? There's no way to know without providing information; even the "Get Started Now" form has options ranging from "not yet in business" to "5 or more years" time in business, but many business loans are not offered to startups or newer companies.

With so little to prove that CapitalLoanHub is a reliable source for business loans, we can only give them a low rating at this time. We believe you'll have a much more secure and successful process in obtaining your next business loan with one of the higher-rated lenders in our review.

Business Loans

To help you find the Best Business Loans, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of CAN Capital and Capital Loan Hub.

With all the difficulties in today's economy, many people are choosing to open their own business instead of working for a traditional employer. Whether you're just starting your business, expanding your already-established business, or even hanging out a shingle as an online company, it's likely that at some point you'll need a business loan to successfully meet your customer's needs and your business goals.

In the past, small business owners relied heavily on traditional brick-and-mortar banks in order to finance their business loans. Often that meant that borrowers had to rely on their own reputation and relationship with their local bank. Getting the lowest possible interest rate was also more challenging, since there were few lending options from which to choose.

Fortunately, business owners today can choose among many lenders to find the best terms and interest rates available. In addition to the old local options, small business borrowers now have much more and better choices through various lenders on the Internet that specialize in small business loans.

There are many factors that you should consider before selecting a lender for your business loan. Some of these include:

  • Loan size and rate. How much will you be allowed to borrow? What interest rates do they typically offer on loans of that size?
  • Loan application process. When applying for your business loan, can it be completed online? Is the lending process easy and straightforward?
  • Requirements for business history. Can a brand-new business take out a loan, or is there a minimum time that the business must have been in operation in order to qualify? What other verification and/or collateral is required to secure the loan?
  • BBB rating. Does the lender have an established history of good business practices?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Business Loan programs available today. We hope this information helps you find the best loan for your small business at an affordable rate!
