Our Stoney Creek auto loans team is going to explain the exact steps you need to take to buy a truck with bad credit. We hope it helps.


How to Buy a Truck With Bad Credit

Whether you need the truck for work, rest, or play, there are ways to keep costs sensible even when you have bad credit.


Do the following and you should find your truck becomes a lot more affordable!


Check Your Credit Report

Everyone should check their credit report regularly. Get a copy from TransUnion or Equifax and check it for accuracy, to make sure everything is correct, and that accounts have the right amount or are marked closed when they have been settled.


Then check your credit score as we need to know your starting point so you can measure any improvement.


If you have time before you apply for a bad credit truck loan, do what you can to improve the score. Pay down credit cards, settle outstanding debts, and set up automatic payments so you have a spotless payment history.


Save for a Down Payment

Down payments benefit every auto loan, bad credit or not. They reduce the amount you have to borrow and can reduce the interest rate you’ll pay. A down payment insulates the lender from a loss if you default, which lowers the risk, which results in a lower rate.


The more you can put down, the less you’ll need to borrow, which also lowers the risk. If you don't have the luxury of time to save for a down payment, no-money down car financing is always an option, but it's not preferred.


Prepare Your Trade-in

If you have something to trade in, now is a good time to fix it up so it looks its best. That could be as simple as giving it a thorough clean inside and out or be more difficult.


The more you can do to make the car look ready for a new owner, the better. Balance the need to spend money on parts and repairs against the potential future value of the trade in.


Only spend money if it seems worth it. Otherwise, save it for the down payment.
