Financing a Pre-Owned Pickup Truck

Financing a Pre-Owned Pickup Truck

Whether you need a pickup truck for work, to navigate around the hills and valleys of where you live, or you simply prefer the look of a truck, it’s easy to understand why they are such a popular form of personal and professional transportation. If the time has come to purchase a pre-owned truck and you would like to finance the transaction, there are a few things you can do to help simplify and expedite the process and get you behind the wheel of your new ride that much faster.


When it comes to financing used trucks, your credit score is often one of the primary factors in determining whether you will be approved, and at what interest rate. As you probably already know, the better your credit score is, the more favorable your rate typically will be. Therefore, it behooves you to take a close look at your credit reports from the credit bureaus to determine that everything that is listed on them is accurate and up-to-date. Even minor discrepancies or errors can make a major impact on your credit score.


If you find anything that is inaccurate on your credit report, you have the right as a consumer to ask that the credit bureau fix those errors. You can submit a dispute request to the bureau; often, this can be done online, or you can mail a letter to the credit bureau. You may have to follow up with the credit bureau to ensure that the matter was handled properly.


If your credit score is poor, this certainly does not mean that you will not qualify for a used truck. Many individuals with low credit scores do not even bother trying to apply for financing out of fear that they will be declined. The reality is that many people can and do get qualified for financing, even with low credit scores, when they partner with a dealership that specializes in approving those with less-than-perfect credit.
