Some of the standard questions from our customers.

When does the insurance certificate need to be in to First Western Equipment Finance?

We prefer that the certificate be sent in with all other documents sent to the account manager. If that isn't possible, as soon as possible thereafter, to make sure that customers are protected from loss or damage.

Will First Western Equipment Finance contact the agent?

We will follow-up with the agent to obtain the correct documents, but the customer must make an initial contact with their agent to add the equipment to their policy.
