Bad credit is usually a documentation of the negative record of the consumer’s past loans, which includes bankrupts and late payments. This is usually checked with credit score and if the score is below about 640 then the consumer is often considered as a high risk candidate and is denied loans from banks, unions and so on.

What do you do if you have  bad credit?

Because of this people with poor credits are often forced to look for finances from local dealers and local finance companies. They usually charge a bit higher interest rates than banks because of the higher risk included.

First and foremost the score is important. If you have borderline scores is it is easy to get loans at less rates. Lower the score, the fewer the choices and higher the rates of interest. Further the bad credit is also separated as situational and habitual bad credit. If the credit history is clean (all payments on time with a good job and stable income) till an unexpected calamity like divorce, unemployment and so on then the loan is seen to be favorable. But if it is seen that the Bad credit is habitual then the loan is seen as an unfavorable risk and often the individual is denied any loans.

To avail poor credit auto loans, find out about the local dealers either manually or by some loan matching service which will require you to fill a car loan application and they will check their network and find out about the dealers that have coinciding interests as you have. The dealers will generally have their own policies and not many would be willing to work with a customer who has poor credit or is in the stage of bankruptcy and can give only a low down payment.

Many online services have a vast network that often gives you better chances at lower interest rates frequently with low down payment. Once the dealer is fixed, the individual can start selecting the automobile and negotiate with the dealer about the preferences and terms of the contract. Many people might be specific about the car in this case there will be a less chance of success as the dealers willing to work with people having poor credit would be less. So the rates of interest may many times not be negotiable. Increasing the down payment is a good tactic to reduce interest rates.

After the formalities are done you get a poor credit auto loan! If this loan is repaid on time then it can improve your credit score. Make sure that your lenders do report the positive credit payments. Thus it can help you get a lower interest rate and better offers while availing for a loan for your next purchase.
