Having approved thousands of BC residents, our staff has a 99% success rate in getting you approved for an auto loan regardless of your credit situation. Unlike the banks or larger auto financing companies, our focus is primarily on providing our clients with a smooth process, providing affordable rates, and not further damaging your credit. With fast approvals, getting approved with BC Auto Credit means you can start rebuilding damaged credit scores.
The approval process for a loan typically completes within a 24-48 hour period and involves the following details.
1) Verification of the last two years of work history
2) Your last two pay stubs
3) Drivers license information
4) Monthly payment range you are comfortable with (this speeds up the process in finding you the best vehicle for your budget)
5) Any specific types of vehicles you are interested in so we can pull something from our inventory (We have over 400 vehicles in our inventory)
6) When you are looking to get the loan for your new or used vehicle. Within 24 hours (ASAP), in a few months, or further down the road?
In the event you do not have this information, you may give us a call and we will let you know if we can get you approved with the information that you provide. Although it is more work on our end we are happy to assist you and those you refer to us. So let’s get started and begin rebuilding your credit today!
