Turning to a Credit Union for an Auto Loan

What Is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a financial institution that is owned and operated by the account holders, otherwise known as members. These parties combine their money to offer loans, bank accounts, and other financial services to one another. If a profit is made, money is given back to the members through competitive dividend and interest rates and to enhance the community it is part of.

How Is an Auto Loan from a Credit Union Different Than Other Lending Institutions?

credit unionCredit unions offer a more personalized service because they’re non-profits whose priorities and business model is in the hands of the members. They’re run by a volunteer board who wants their community to have the best customer service and get a car they love. Since they’re community-focused, they provide objective answers, whether it’s your first time buying a car or not. 

Why Is It Important to Secure an Auto Loan from a Credit Union?

A credit union increases your chances of securing a loan and at lower rates than a typical lending institution, particularly if you have bad credit. The members want their community to thrive and can do this by giving funds to those who wouldn’t ordinarily have a chance. They usually offer a 5-year loan term and have lower rates than banks, which can save you money in the long-run. You can then put that cash toward improving your business, helping your family, or building your future.
