In many cases there is no need for you to come to our office to get a loan. The whole process can be done electronically through an eLoan. When we approve your application for a loan you must send us the items listed below. We will then need ten minutes go over the application with you, send you the loan documents by email or by fax to sign and once we get them back will either email the money to you or deposit into your bank account. This is a very quick and secure process and if we get the necessary items this can always be done very quickly.

A Vehicle Title Loan is a loan using a debt free vehicle as collateral. The vehicle must be paid in full (no money owed on it) and cannot be leased.
A vehicle acceptable to use as collateral for a Title Loan must be debt free (no money owed on it), not be leased, be nine years old or newer and have less than 200,000 KMs. There are some exceptions to this so please call if unsure.
Using your vehicle as collateral you can borrow up to 50% of the Black Book rough value to $5,000 plus.

The quick answer is no, however, there are limited cases where we can. Please also see the section on Repair Loans, where we can lend for certain repairs to your vehicle even if it is leased or financed.
Yes, a co-signer will help you get a loan if you do not have a vehicle to use for a Title Loan, however, the co-signor must own a vehicle that they will use that meets the criteria for a Title Loan. Also, your co-signor can help you get loan if they have other collateral to use as security.
If the vehicle is not in your name we can still lend if the person whom the vehicle is registered to co-signs the loan with you or gives you written permission to pledge the vehicle as collateral. The “vehicle portion” of the registration determines whose name the vehicle is registered to.
We can still give a Title Loan using a vehicle registered in your company’s name if you own the company and you can prove it.
