Can I Get a Loan with Bad Credit in Vancouver?

If you're looking to buy a new vehicle in Vancouver but have had money problems in the past, there's no need to worry that financing your purchase will be a problem. Not everyone has the perfect credit required to get the best 0% finance deals advertised across the media, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy driving a top-quality car, SUV, or truck with affordable repayments.

At Richmond Chrysler we can arrange competitive car loans for Vancouver residents with a wide range of financial circumstances, including people with bad credit ratings or no credit history at all.

How a Bad Credit Score Impacts Your Car Loan Financing


Having a bad credit score makes it harder to obtain credit of any kind, but the good news is that at Richmond Chrysler you'll find it much easier to be approved. Even if you have negative entries on your file we can still arrange a competitive deal on your next vehicle, although there are some points to bear in mind.

With a poor credit rating you'll likely be offered a higher interest rate than if you have a perfect score, making the loan cost a little more over the long term. You might also need to provide a higher down payment to get the best financing deal, although no upfront payments at all are required in most cases.

And lastly, with a poor credit rating you'll almost certainly have more success applying through a dedicated car loan finance provider like Richmond Chrysler, rather than asking your bank or other mainstream lender for financing.

Improving Your Approval Chances


But even when you apply through us, it makes sense to get your credit in the best shape possible to increase your chances of approval at a low rate. Here are some tips which can bump up your score.

- If possible, reduce your credit card balances to 30% or less of your credit limit.

- Get a copy of your credit file and make sure it's up-to-date and error free.

- Clear up any small debts that you might have overlooked in the past, from overdue library books to missed subscription payments.

- Avoid applying for credit anywhere else until your car loan is approved.
