Q
If I apply – does that hurt my credit?

When you apply for any loan it does affect your credit rating. Some companies will send your application to all of the banks “hoping” one will approve you. This means your credit is pulled 5-10 times which is not good! We do not do this! After carefully reviewing your information, we contact you, find out the details of what has happened in the past so as to submit you to a auto finance lender that will approve you!

Q
What happens to my information?

Your personal Information is 100% Private! We do not share your personal information with anybody! Unlike other auto loan services, we are not in the business of selling or sharing your personal information with any other firm or entity.
Immediately after you submit your online application, we receive an email informing us you have done so. We then contact you by phone or email to review your application carefully and present it to the auto finance lender whom is most likely to extend you credit in your situation. We never pull your credit report before contacting you and discussing all options.

That’s no problem. We have lenders that can deal with any situation. We cannot guarantee terms and conditions but we will explain what you need to do to get approved. In every case, we will guide you and explain what’s required.

Q
What type of vehicle can I purchase?

That depends on what amount the financial institution approves you for. With 26 dealerships offering both new and used vehicles, you have many options with us.

Q
What determines my auto loan interest rate?

Interest rates are set according to the current condition of your credit. Banks use a credit rating score to determine APR to be set for your auto loan. The credit rating score is normally referred to as FICO or Beacon score. Prime borrowing is usually a score above “630”, and interest rates for a prime customer are generally 9.99% and lower. A score between “300 and 629″ is considered “special finance” or “subprime”. Subprime lending rates will usually fall between 10% and 29.5% depending on your score and present personal circumstances such as owning a home and time at current position. For your exact interest rate, let’s get you in touch with one of our special finance representative today.

Q
Can I put Zero Down?

We have Zero Down options for qualified applications. Your present credit situation will determine the need for a down payment. The general rule is Prime buyers with good credit qualify for zero down financing. Subprime buyers in Ontario Canada generally should have at least $500 or 5% down and yes, trade-ins count as a down payment. It is always wise to be prepared to have a down payment and then be pleasantly surprised when one is not required.
