Steps to take when trying to get a car loan with no credit score

Steps to take when trying to get a car loan with no credit score

If you need a Waterford car loan but have no credit score, you can still get one if you follow these tips.

The first thing we need to do is tell the difference between having no credit and having bad credit.

If you have no credit, your credit report has nothing in it.

A new immigrant or student in Canada may have a credit report with nothing in it, but most Canadians will have at least cell phone bills on their credit report.

Building up a good payment history

If you want to rent an apartment, apply for certain jobs, or get the best terms on a new car loan, you will need credit.

The first step is to sign up for a secured credit facility. Koho has a program that lets you build credit by paying $7 per month for six months.

These payments are reported to both TransUnion and Equifax.

You could also sign up for a secured credit card from Capital One in addition to the credit builder facility from Koho.

These secured cards are a great way to build credit. All you have to do is put money into the account, which becomes your credit limit.

You shouldn't confuse a secured credit card with a prepaid credit card.

These secured cards report to the major credit reporting agencies.

If you make your payments on time, it will take a few months, but your credit score will go up, and you should be in great shape in 6–12 months.

What to do when you can't wait for your credit score to get better

You might need a new car right away and don't have time to wait for your credit score to get better.

This happens to a lot of people, especially if the new car will be used for work. Most lenders won't give you a loan for a new car if you have bad credit, so you'll need to ask for help.

Pros of having a steady income and help from experts

If you have a steady, good-sized income and work with a local expert, you will be able to get a car loan in Waterford.

If you go through a local car dealership, you can talk to the credit experts there about your situation.

They will be able to set up a car loan with the best terms possible.

Remember that you don't have bad credit; you don't have any credit at all, which is a very rare situation.

The dealership can talk to potential lenders about how good your situation is and how stable your income is.

Since you don't have a high credit score, you won't be able to get the best interest rates, but you will be able to get a good car loan.

In some cases, you may have to pay a small down payment to get a car loan, but it will be worth it to drive home in a new car.

Now that you know how to get a car loan even if you have bad credit, go to a dealership near you and start taking test drives right away.
