Don't forget your hometown Credit Union!
When you are in the market for a new vehicle you probably head out to your local dealership looking to get a great deal. Shopping locally is vital to small towns everywhere. Supporting a local business strengthens the economic base of every community. A good portion of the money spent with local businesses is used to make purchases from other local entities. This creates a domino effect that can preserve a neighborhood even in an economic turn down.
But, when shopping locally, how many of you think to finance locally? Many car dealerships are set up with finance departments that can have you set up with financing before you even get back from your test drive. However, when you are ready sign on the dotted line, do you know what you are signing? What are your loan terms? And most importantly who will be holding your loan? More often than not, it will be a big bank that will end up with your loan. This could mean mailing a check every month. Or remembering to hop online and make that monthly payment.
When you are out there shopping remember your local Credit Union for financing. From start to finish we will be sure that you are getting the best deal possible. We will walk you through all steps of the financing process and make sure you understand the terms of your loan. One of the benefits to financing locally is more personal attention. Our loan officers are available to speak to you personally whenever you have questions or concerns. We can get your loan approved in as little as 24 hours as well as have you set up on payroll deduction. Never miss a payment or worry about having to mail it out.
