Kira Motley of Gold Coast-based, Grease Monkeys Motor Co., is as hardworking as they come. She runs two businesses as both a mechanic and an electrician, so this feisty lady is not to be messed with. When her partner couldn’t find work, they decided to get their hands dirty and buy a store themselves. This is exactly this kind of hardworking DIY attitude that defines the kind of merchant that Beyond Merchant Capital loves to support. Hardworking Australians who pride themselves on commitment, expert service, and fair pricing. Grease Monkeys is an incredibly customer-centric service centre. They constantly go the extra mile for their customer with add-ons like aircon, wifi, and coffee. Says Kira, “Grease Monkeys is the quintessential neighbourhood repairs centre. We don’t just fix cars, we get people going.”
Tough times calls for some tough love
Like so many small business owners, Grease Monkeys had to carefully navigate the uncertain economic climate. “We had to navigate factors like over-spending. We also had to take advantage of better months to carry us over us into the sparse ones – this was a top priority.” Says Kira. But she has a really optimistic attitude when it comes to all the unknowns. “It’s the same as always, as a business owner, you just got to keep going,” she says. This is an astute approach for the mechanic who makes it her business to get people back on the road as safely and swiftly as possible, every day.
Knowing where you stand is a game changer
Kira is an entrepreneur who has always tried to stay as far away from lenders as possible. But there comes a time when you just can’t do everything by yourself. Here, merchant financing becomes an essential element for success. She came across Beyond Merchant Capital’s product online and was immediately drawn to the lender’s clever approach to repayments. “I love that I can pay in line with turnover via my EFTPOS terminal, so I never feel the knock and know exactly where I stand at the end of each and every day.” Kira also appreciated that the service was everything is professed to be. This is an important aspect of our product,” says CEO of Beyond Merchant Capital Larry Prosser, “We do exactly as we say we will. There are no hidden costs in our merchant financing. We offer predictable service and repayments that work as fast or slow as your business can manage.”
Kira invested her Merchant Cash Advance in new materials and help with general bills. This was a welcomed relief. “I wouldn’t change a thing about the Cash Advance – it was so easy and just helped me get stuff done,” she said. We are so proud to be working with Grease Monkeys and just like they power their customers, Beyond Merchant Capital was able to recharge Grease Monkey’s engine too.
