What is a Car Title Loan?


Car title loans, otherwise known as title loans, pink slip loans, or auto title loans are loans that use your vehicle as the collateral for a loan. These types of loans allow a borrower to take out a loan that is equal or lesser than their car’s equity value. In order to qualify for a car title loan, a borrower must first be the sole owner of their vehicle, meaning the car is paid off and is free of any liens. The car title should be under the borrower’s name before it can be used to take out a loan. If a borrower owns a car that has a market resale value of around $6,000, then the loan amount for their car title loan will be up to $6,000. Of course, for each lender this may be different. Car title loans offer financial solution to those who are typically unable to get a loan with a bank or other financial institution due to a low credit score. Borrowers who struggle with poor credit or are trying to recover from their financial history can still have access to loans through TNL Car Title Loans.

How Does a Car Title Loan Work?


The name of the loan comes from the use of your car title as collateral for the loan. When you take out a car title loan with a lender, the lender agrees to give the borrower an amount of money that is equal or less than the equity value of the car. To back this loan amount, the car title will be transferred under the lender’s name to hold until the loan is paid off by the borrower. While paying off this loan, borrowers can keep their car and continue to use it. However, if a borrower defaults on the loan and is unable to pay the loan back, then the car title will stay under the lender’s name and the car will need to be given to the lender.
