You can download financing pre-approval documents in our resources list.
What price/terms are you willing to offer?
A large part of buying FedEx routes is determining the price/terms that will make sense for you. Once you and the seller have agreed on a price, the next step will be to outline the terms in a Letter of Intent. You can download a sample letter of intent from our resources.
How can you streamline your FedEx approval?
A large part of the FedEx approval process will include the submittal of a business plan (or RFI). We have made available a sample RFI that potential buyers can download upon request.
