Need a car loan but don't know where to start? You've come to the right place!

In the past, Ontarians could only apply for a car loan: 

  • through the dealership
  • at the bank

Today, there's a third way and it's a lot more efficient...

Here's how it works: 

Step 1 - First, we ask you to pick a vehicle type. By indicating which type of car you are looking to finance, we are able to find dealers that have this particular kind of vehicle in their inventory.

Step 2 - Next, you need to fill out our online Car Loan Application form. This questionnaire takes just 3 minutes and we only ask for basic details. With this information, we are able to determine how much you're eligible for. 

Step 3 - Then, we'll match your application with a certified dealer partner who is able to discuss your vehicle options. You can expect to be contacted by a dealership near you that is in the best position to offer you a suitable vehicle with a monthly payment that makes sense. 

What If I live outside major Ontario cities?

If you live in big cities like Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Kitchener, or London there are lots of dealerships to choose from when you’re looking for a car, but many of these dealerships don’t offer bad credit car loans.

If you live in smaller cities and towns like Oshawa, Windsor, Barrie, Thunder Bay, or Sarnia, it can be even harder to find a dealership near you that works with bad credit customers.

We don't just serve Toronto and Ottawa - we work with the most reputed lenders and dealerships throughout Ontario! Wherever you live in the province, click here to apply now and get approved today!
