How long will the process take?
Enrolling in the program will take considerable time and effort. Expect to dedicate two to three hours to the application process, including communications with Clean TRIP staff. Once program eligibility has been confirmed and a certificate for replacement issued, you may begin to shop for a new truck. Consistent communication and coordination is required by all parties throughout the replacement process. Clean TRIP truck replacements usually take 2-3 months, but may take longer.
How can I tell if I will qualify for financing for the balance of the truck price?
Approval for financing is solely the decision of the financial institutions and is generally based upon your credit report and credit score. A credit report is a record of your credit history. Other factors may be reviewed by the financial institution before financing is approved. Below is a list of questions that are commonly asked by financial institutions when reviewing financing applications. Please consider these questions before you choose to pursue participating in the Clean TRIP program.
Answering yes to any these questions may impact your chance of obtaining financing, but ultimately the decision is up to the financing institutions.
