Two Case Studies of Bad Credit Auto Loan Approval

Here we present three different examples of clients we’ve helped get approved for financing and get them on the road in their new vehicle.

Bad Credit Auto Loan: Case Study #1 – In Calgary Alberta

This first client needed a bad credit auto loan and his credit score was at 630-640 at the time of approval. He had a job at Tim Hortons in Southeast Calgary at the time. His credit score was bad because of overdue credit cards that got out of control. He just couldn’t make the payments on time, being late for his minimum payment numerous times in one particular year. He was sharing rent on an apartment in McKenzie Town at the time, and he really didn’t have much in the way of extra money at all.

His 1994 Mazda finally finished it’s life with a  transmission that needed replacing, and it was badly rusted too. So he realized he really needed a newer car so he could safely and easily get from point A to point B. He was also in big rush to get approved for a loan so he had wheels ASAP.

He contacted us and we managed to find him 2002 Toyota Camry for $4,500 – it was good condition and these were the details on it;

Make/Model: Toyota Camry
Year: 2002
Price: $4,500
Odometer: 154,686 Kms

Monthly payment was $235 which was manageable for him.

In the end Kenneth was VERY happy to get financing for his Toyota Camry and his transportation concerns were well taken care of. He was approved with an interest rate that was much better than he thought it would be considering how bad his credit history was at the time. Since this purchase, his credit score has improved, and one of the main reasons for that is because he was making successful payments on his Camry every month. He managed to get his spending under control and was very serious about not damaging his credit score any further.

He was approved for financing based on the Camry as collateral, and we found him the lowest possible interest rate on the note.

Bad Credit Auto Loan: Case Study #2 – In Edmonton Alberta

Andrea who lives in Edmonton, Alberta had recently been through a divorce and both her and her ex-husband’s credit scores were severely damaged. She ended up with a VERY bad credit rating with a FICO score of 590-600 (varying from Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). In fact, Andrea’s credit score was so bad, she didn’t even bother trying to get a loan with her bank branches (TD Canada Trust and Royal Bank). Her husband had totalled their old family Hyundai SUV in a DUI accident, therefore there was no insurance. This happened when they were in the middle of divorce proceedings. A very bad time for both of them and their kids.

Luckily she still had a job working as a waitress in a bar not far from the West Edmonton mall and made pretty good tips on the weekend. Here total income per month averaged between $2200 and $2500. This is after she added up her base wages and her tips. She was also raising a 3 year old boy and a 2 year old girl by herself. She moved in with her mother which was also lucky because she didn’t have a mortgage or rent to pay.

Regardless though, her credit score was so bad there was no way she was going to get a car loan from any traditional bank in Alberta. So she started using Google to look for a way she good buy a car based on her employment income only. She had been working for the same employer for three years at the time of her struggle to get approved.

She found us using Google and she called us at 403 818 5626. Our friendly staff informed her that we could help her get approved for a car loan regardless of her credit rating, and the loan collateral would be her used vehicle. Her steady job of course came into play as well, but most importantly the finance company/bank would want her SUV to be collateral on the loan.

We helped her purchase (got her financing and found her a used Nissan Sentra with low mileage and in great shape) Here are the details:

Price: $3,900
Year: 2006
Make/Model: Nissan Sentra
Odometer: 113450
Body Type: Sedan
Transmission: Automatic
Colour: Red
Drivetrain: Front wheel drive
Fuel Type: Gasoline
