Are Car Title Loans Worth it?

Loan - Get Good Credit

If you’re feeling under pressure and need a quick way out, you may be thinking of turning your car into cash by selling it.. However, some people may try to get a car title loan instead.

What exactly is a car title loan? This is a type of loan that a lender may offer where you can trade in your car’s title to get some instant cash, which you have to pay back to get your title back. To some people, this sounds like an easy way out to get some quick cash; however, if you’re unable to pay back the loan, you will lose your car.

These types of loans last between two to four weeks while using the title of your vehicle. It’s a VERY RISKY loan as they are similar to cash advance loans. Interest and fees can stack up quickly over time and people often come under further debt compared to when they first started.

Car title loans are expensive in the long run and they should only be taken out as a last resort or else you may lose your car or end up paying a lot getting it back. The finance fee of car title loans is, on average, 25% per MONTH, not a year. This means every month a car title loan is active, the interest will stack up. Title lenders may also add other transactional fees, processing fees, and documentation fees. They may even charge for extra services and add-ons you need to start the loan like a GPS tracker and lockout chips for when you are unable to pay back the loan.

Here’s the typical process for a car title loan:

Title lenders make a lot of money with the rollover fees and interest rates stacking up over time. With the 25% lending fee, a loan can easily double after four months of not paying back, which makes it harder and harder to pay back over time. This is why car title loans can be a very risky loan to take out as the fees stack up quickly over a short period of time.

If you’re unable to pay back the loan in full, the title lender will have the authority to repossess your car, which may put you in a worse financial situation if you cannot get to work. Once the lender has the car, they have full right to sell the vehicle to recoup losses.

It’s important to be careful when it comes to car title loans as the fees can escalate quickly and you will always end up paying far more than what you took out. These types of loans are considered a last resort and should be avoided if possible.

  •   Ok so I've been holding off writing this review for about 7 months. And as you can see by the 5 stars I left I'm beyond happy with the services this company provided me. I was skeptical at 1st even though they had stellar reviews (which is why I chose them) but there's always that thing in the back of my mind of "well they probably won't be able to help me though, I will be that exception they cant fix". Needless to say they absolutely crushed getting EVERY collection I had off my report!!! I had about 5 grand worth of stuff on there that they managed to make disappear like magic. My credit has shot up over 150 points! I cannot say enough good things about them. I even referred my coworker to them after and they sent me a $50 referral check back! If you're looking to clean up your credit, don't wait, call these superstars and get on your way to feeling confident about your credit again. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I'm so grateful. Thank you fix your credit!!!

  •   I worked with Mia and Said for over a year, I believe. They were beneficial and responsive. Although we were not successful with all of my accounts, they still helped me raise my credit by about 100 points. So I stand satisfied. I recommend them. Not to mention there prices are very competitive. Thank you all.

  •   I called this place about 3 months when I decided it was time to fix my credit.   I spoke with Mia, she walked me thought the whole process in a 5 minute phone conversation.  It was simple enough so I decided to pull the trigger and signed up.  Its only been 3 months and already they have removed negative items and improved my score significantly.   I strongly recommend to give them a call as soon as possible, I waited too long and I wish I would have called sooner. I will update in a few months with the final results.
