Tips for Financing

Here are a few good general guide lines about getting approved for financing, as well as tips for building your score:

  • Put as much money down as you can: most people can’t pay for their whole vehicle out of pocket, but making a significant down payment will help you to lower your monthly payments and reduce your payback period. In the long run, this will reduce the total amount of interest you owe. A lender may also be more willing to approve you if you make a sizeable down payment.
  • Don’t give up hope: even if you don’t get approved at a dealership, there are still other options. Special agencies cater to drivers who are looking for auto loans, including drivers that may be normally turned down by dealerships.
  • Set up automatic bill pay: often times, you have the means to pay for a bill, but you simply forget to do so. This is where automatic bill payment comes in handy. Most banks allow you to set up reoccurring deposits to a lender online, making it so you’re never late on payments again.
