As car loan interest rates rise, the need becomes greater for consumers to work a little harder when shopping for the best deals.
Shopping for a car loan can be just as daunting as shopping for a car. Most car shopping begins online. If you’ve ever done a Google search for “car loan,” you know how many hundreds of options are available.
But how do you choose which car loan is best? Here’s where your local car dealer can help.
Dealerships are the best place to get a car loan for many reasons…
It’s super convenient since you’re already at the dealer.
All of the bothersome paperwork — from title transfers to loan agreements — can be handled professionally at the dealership. The whole process goes more smoothly with this one-stop approach.
Using dealership financing sources makes it easier to access offers from multiple lenders at once. The easiest and best way to finance a vehicle is through the dealership where the vehicle is being purchased.
Dealerships have close relationships with all types of lenders.
Dealerships normally have dozens of lenders from which to choose. They work with lenders of all kinds – good credit, fair credit, bad credit – and consumers benefit from those relationships.
We’ve all experienced poor customer service and, with the consolidation of banks and other lenders, it doesn’t seem to be getting much better.
On the flip side, dealers are business members of your community and maintain good relationships with their portfolio of lenders. They are there to answer questions and help you, instead of putting you on hold or treating you like a “number.”
Dealerships have flexible lenders who are open to people who have lower credit scores.
For people who have blips on their credit history, dealers can leverage their good lender relationships to help them get a car loan, often when they’ve been rejected elsewhere.
Financial hardships can happen to anyone. There are many individuals who simply aren’t prepared for unexpected financial challenges such as job loss or medical bills. Having a close relationship with all types of lenders allows the dealer to find the right car loan for YOU.
At DYE Autos, we’ve worked with hundreds of credit-challenged customers here in the Denver – Wheat Ridge area and we understand how tough it can be. It’s a fact that lenders do lend to people who’ve been through hardship and we can help you.
Your credit score is a three-digit number that uses your credit information to assess how risky a borrower you are, and it can significantly influence how lenders decide the terms of your loan.
The higher your credit score, the lower your risk and the lower your interest rate. The lower your credit score, the riskier you are and the higher your interest rates. Be proactive in checking your credit score before you shop so you know where your credit stands before you apply for a loan.
Bonus tip: get pre-approved for a car loan.
Many dealers, like us at Dye Autos, offer an easy way for customers to get pre-approved.
This fast and easy process lets you choose how much you want to borrow based on the type of vehicle you’re looking for. Pre-approved truck financing with DYE Autos is just a click away. Visit this link >>>here<<< to get pre-qualified.
