Devin needs his car to get to work every day, and neither his insurance nor his warranty will cover the high cost of repairing his vehicle.
He comes to NetCredit and sees that he can quickly apply for a loan to pay for auto repairs — without having to provide his car title as collateral.
He completes the application in minutes, is approved, signs his contract and promptly provides a few requested documents to ensure fast funding.
Because Devin submitted his application before 7 a.m. CT and was approved before 10:30 a.m. CT on a weekday, he got fast funding and had his car repaired later that day!
Devin makes all of his repayments on time. NetCredit reports those on-time payments to major credit bureaus, helping Devin build credit history.
Car repair loans are often personal loans and may be either secured or unsecured, depending on the lender. If it is unsecured, the loan typically requires a credit check. If the car repair loan is secured financing, the automobile's title is often used as the collateral for the loan. In this case, the loan amount is limited to a portion of the current market or blue book value of the vehicle. This form of auto repair financing is usually called a title pawn loan or pink slip financing.
NetCredit loans provide an alternative for people who have difficulty getting approved for traditional bank loans or other forms of credit. This makes it possible for someone with less-than-perfect credit to qualify for car repair loans. Plus, NetCredit loans are unsecured, which means you are not required to provide collateral such as a home or car title.
Depending on the type of repair that is needed, you should consider purchasing a new or lightly used car in lieu of fixing the current car or truck. There are a number of factors you should consider in this situation, including:
How much is your current vehicle worth?
How much would it cost to purchase a new/used vehicle?
What is the overall cost of the repairs?
When considering repairs that are approximately equal to or more than the value of your current vehicle, it may make more financial sense to buy a vehicle as opposed to getting your current one repaired.
Many programs help to alleviate surprise expenses from vehicle repairs and eliminate the need for auto repair loans:
New Car Warranties: Most new cars are covered by manufacturer and dealer warranties for mechanical failures and recall fixes.
Extended and Used Car Warranties: Extended warranty programs provide limited coverage for certain repairs for used vehicles. These warranty programs can extend an existing warranty or may be new warranties for older vehicles.
Collision Insurance: Collision coverage is optional for most vehicle insurance plans, but it can be valuable. Collision insurance covers the cost, after deductibles, of repairing your car, as long as the damage was caused by an accident.
Without these programs, car owners may need to turn to a lender or creditor in order to borrow the money needed to get their vehicle up and running.
