TERMS AND CONDITIONS
For October 2019 only we are running a special with downs reduced to as low as $399 down on the majority of our inventory. Most downs will run from $399 to $699 and some from $699 to $999 down.
HOW ARE YOUR DOWN PAYMENTS SO LOW? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE CAR?
We get this question alot. There is nothing wrong. We have customers come here all the time that were down the street and looking at the same car for $1000 down and we have it for $399. We would love to get more down and we used to years ago but people just have limited savings. Therefore, it has forced us to drop our down payments so people can afford and we can still sell cars. We have to absorb the upfront costs of selling a vehicle and since we do our own financing it allows us that flexibility. Just because we have a very low down doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the vehicles. Not at all. In fact we even do a warranty so we wouldn't do that if we didn't stand behind our product. We also spend more than double most places in reconditioning costs. That means before we sell the car they spend a week at our shop undergoing inspection and repair so we can make sure we are selling a good car.
So again, We can offer extremely low down payments compared to other places on the same car because we can absorb the upfront cost of selling the vehicle after being in business for so long. We are about 50% to 70% lower on our down payments compared to most our competitors and on a higher quality vehicle with an included warranty!!! That's pretty amazing!
COMPARE US TO OUR COMPETITORS
3 YEARS 10 MONTHS
Why is this so different? Because they charge about 7% to 10% more on interest. So to keep the payments still reasonable they have to extend the loan another 1 to 2 years. I have seen people with 14k in interest charges where ours is under $6,000 on a very similar car. We can do a lower down and much lower term all because our interest rate is so much lower. You can save thousands and thousands and on a better car with a better warranty and customer service!
So make sure you compare the down payment and interest rate and you will see how you can save thousands with us!!
QUALIFICATIONS FOR LOW DOWNS
Everyone's situation is different and it's hard to say who will qualify and who won't for the low down until we look at an application and credit.
If we can't get you approved with a low down then we might ask for $1000 to $1500 which is still very low for a vehicle or a better co-signer if you want to stay with the low down.
40% OF APPS WE LOOK AT QUALIFY FOR LOW DOWN
20% QUALIFY FOR $1000 TO $1500 DOWN
20% QUALIFY FOR $1500 OR MORE DOWN
10% NEED $2000 OR MORE
10% JUST CAN'T FINANCE RIGHT NOW AT ALL
ABOUT 1% OF THE APPS WE LOOK AT ARE FRAUD-FAKE SOCIALS, FAKE PAYSTUBS.
-We have vehicles that run from $399 to $799 on the majority of our vehicles. We will have some more expensive vehicles or luxury vehicles that may run more but 95% of our inventory you can get riding for $399 to $799 down.
In fact if you walk in with $500 to $600 you can drive off in the majority of vehicles. If we are asking $699 and you only have $500 we can do a pick payment which allows you to pay the rest of the down payment back within a month or we may just be able to lower the down payment for you by $100 or more.
We also run promotions from time to time.
Do you really have vehicles for that low?
-Yes we do! Just browse the inventory. We have a good selection of vehicles for $399 down or less. The majority of our down payments run between $399 and $800 down! That is pretty amazing. We also do pick payments or down payment assistance which is if you are short on the down payment by $200 or $300 we can give you about a month to pay the rest.
Why do some vehicles have larger down payments than others?
-Down payments are typically higher on the more expensive vehicles, the higher end vehicles, the newer models and the luxury vehicles. For example a 2015 Chevy Impala is going to naturally have a higher down payment than a 2011 Chevy Impala because of the price difference. We try to carry a wide range of vehicles to fit different budgets and needs.
How can you set your down payments so low?
-Doing our own financing and having a cash reserve available after many years in business allows us to absorb the upfront cost of selling a vehicle and offer our customers lower down payments than most our competitors. We are always in the negative when we sell a vehicle. What that means is it initially costs us money to sell you a vehicle. Even though you might put $400 down we have to pay taxes, a sales commission and other business expenses. Total all that up and it costs us money to sell you a vehicle. We can absorb this cost up front and offer our customers some of the lowest down payments around-even with problem credit.
Are there any gimmicks? When I come in will you hit me with plus tax, tag, and title and a $399 down payment turns into $1500?
-Nope! That is a common trick though that many dealers use. If we are asking $399 down then that is what we require. We would only ask for more if we cannot get you financed then a higher down payment or co-signer could push the financing through.
Do I need to meet certain criteria for the low down payment?
All applicants must get approved for financing. That is true with homes, cars, credit cards, etc. Our financing program is geared towards individuals with past credit problems, low beacon scores, past repos, past bankruptcies, etc. If you meet criteria for financing then what we ask for a down payment is what we require. For better qualified applicants we may be able to lower the down payment from what we are asking. If we cannot get you approved then we can give you additional options to help you get approved such as larger down payment or a co-signer. If an applicant is required to put more money down then what we are asking then it is because your application is considered too high risk and you don’t meet the criteria for financing with us. A higher down payment can lower this risk and then can get you financed on the rest of the selling price of the vehicle.
Is everyone approved?
Of course not. Any loan must undergo approval for financing. When loaning someone up to $15,000 you have to look at several factors such as income, stability and credit. We do deal in low beacon scores where you may have a hard time getting approved at a bank because of your credit score or even have a hard time getting a subprime loan. However, we still need to evaluate the risk and determine your ability to pay the loan not only for our benefit but for yours as well. We don't want to put customers in a situation where they will fail because the loan was too much or payments too high.
If you are higher risk a larger down payment or a stronger co-signer could help push the financing through.
All that being said, our speciality is individuals with credit issues but if it's too high risk it could be a denial, would need a higher down payment or a strong co-signer.
One of the major things we look at is income and debt to income and payment to income ratios. We need to make sure you make enough money to afford the payment.
We also focus on credit history in regard to recent issues such as repos, credit cards, etc. If you have an excessive amount of charge off accounts or multiple recent repos it could hurt your chances and you may be required to put more money down in order to obtain financing. We cannot really say until we pull an application and look at your app and credit and we can then determine your approval or not and your down payment.
I see a vehicle for more money down than I have-can I get into it with a lower down payment?
-We want to sell vehicles but it has to make sense for both parties. If we are asking $1000 down and you only have $800 then that may be enough. There are just so many factors to consider-your income, your stability, and your credit. Our experienced finance department will look at your application and consider many different factors to see if you can qualify for a lower down payment than what we have listed.
Ok, so I know your down payments are low but what about the payments on the vehicles?
-Our interest rate is very low compared to the industry average in our business. So even if you have problem credit and a low beacon score we can still offer you a great interest rate. What this translates into is an affordable payment as well as a low down payment. With a huge inventory and a wide variety of vehicles and prices to choose from we try and accommodate different needs and budgets.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS:PRICE, INTEREST RATE AND PAYMENTS
We offer vehicles for sale that range anywhere from $8995 up to $18995. This gives you a large range of vehicles to choose from. The majority of our vehicles fall right between $12,995 and $14,995 with an average selling price of around $13,495.
We believe in full disclosure and no deception. An educated consumer is a smart consumer and we also believe that not hiding anything is good and ethical business.
Below is a typical loan example which includes the selling prices, fees, down payments and payments associated with purchasing and financing a vehicle.
$13,495 plus TAVT and Doc Fee and Title/Tag Fees
175 bi weekly for 4 years.
Doc Fee and TAVT and Title Fee are common charges that are added to the overall price of the loan and we will finance it for you.
What is TAVT?
TAVT stands for title ad valorem tax. TAVT replaced the yearly ad valorem fee in Georgia in 2013. If you ever bought a vehicle in the past you remember you had to pay a fee each year to renew your tag. This is not required anymore. You pay it upfront one time and that is it. This is a fee that the customer is responsible for that pays the “Automobile Tax” on your vehicle. This is required to be paid anytime somebody purchases a vehicle. We will finance this charge for you so you do not have to pay it. We will pay it for you and the down payment you put down does help us pay it but we have to come out of pocket ourselves to pay it for you. TAVT ranges depending on the value of the vehicle.
“Motor vehicles purchased on or after March 1, 2013 and titled in this state are exempt from sales and use tax and annual ad valorem tax, also known as the "birthday tax". These taxes are replaced by a one-time tax that is imposed on the fair market value of the vehicle called the title ad valorem tax fee ("TAVT").”
What is DOC Fee?
Doc or document fee is a charge that dealers charge to help pay some of the expenses associated with selling a vehicle. This is a pretty common fee and can vary widely depending on the dealership. We will also add this to the price of the loan for you so you don’t have to come out of pocket up front to pay for it.
What is Title and Tag Fees?
Each vehicle you buy from us we add a fee of $89.00 to help pay the expenses associated with transferring your title and doing your title work for you. It is a very complicated process when you buy a vehicle. The title must be registered in your name with us as a lien holder. We must then also add ourselves as a lien. Most of this is done electronically now and there are fees from both the State and from the company that handles the transactions to make this all possible so you can get your tag. We handle all this for you so you don’t have to do it yourself.
So to recap. The first step is to qualify for financing for the purchase price of the vehicle plus title, tavt, and doc fee. If you are approved then you pick out the vehicle you want to purchase and finance and put down the recommended down payment we have listed for that vehicle.
If we cannot get you approved or you are higher risk then a larger down payment or a co-signer may be required for approval. We look at many different factors when considering an approval such as credit, income and stability.
By doing market research we truly have some of the lowest down payments around if not the lowest for the type of vehicles we carry and the type of financing that we do. It is very tough for people with problem credit to put such a low down payment down but that is what sets us apart. We believe in making down payments extremely affordable even for individuals with credit problems.
If you do not qualify for financing then we can give you the reasons why so you can correct them and come back at a later date or we may be able to get you approved with a higher down payment or a co-signer.
