Buy Here Pay Here Car Loans

If you need buy here pay here in NH, you’ve come to the right place. We love working with the members of our community who need to get a reliable car, and that extends to people who have poor credit or rough financial history. Buy here pay here car loans are just as effective as traditional loans, and they will still get you behind the wheel of the car you need.

In short, BHPH loans are for people who are unable to qualify for a traditional car loan for one reason or another. It could be because that individual’s financial history is spotty — perhaps you’ve filed bankruptcy or missed too many credit card payments. Regardless of the reason, we can help you fund your car purchase.

In a buy here pay here loan, you receive financing directly from our dealership rather than a third party loan vendor. As a result, you make all of your car payments to us. Another part of bhph loans that sets them apart is that you will make more frequent payments (often bi-weekly, sometimes even weekly), and those payments are often due in person rather than via direct deposit or transfer. Another thing to keep in mind — buy here pay here loans will usually carry a higher interest rate than traditional loans, but that doesn’t mean you should avoid them. As long as you demonstrate reliable income and take a reasonable loan, the interest shouldn’t be a problem.

How Can You Increase Your Credit Score Before Applying for Loans?

While your credit score may often seem fickle, you can take action to improve your rating. Bear in mind — credit score gains and drops are often latent, so you need to start several months (or even a couple of years if you have serious credit knocks in the past) in advance. You can apply to have certain items removed from your credit history if you believe they are inaccurate, and you can even have things removed at times if the balance is paid in full.

A more accessible and reliable way to increase your score is to keep your ratio of available vs. unavailable credit to 30% or lower — in other words, if you have $1000 of credit with your credit card, you’d want to keep your balance lower than $300 at any given time. This can have a fairly dramatic effect on your score, and it’s completely within your power.

Whether you need a buy here pay here loan or a traditional version of car finance, get in touch! We’d be happy to help.
