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.
You can get this type of loan with any vehicle that belongs to you, is a 2009 or newer model year (some exceptions apply), has no more than 200,000 KMs, is not seriously damaged, is currently plated, is registered in Ontario and is fully insured.
Using your vehicle as collateral you can borrow up to 50% of the Black Book rough value to a maximum of $5,000.
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.
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.
