What is a title loan?
A title loan is simply a loan that is based upon the value of your vehicle; this can be a car, truck, RV, motorcycle, boat, or any other type of vehicle that you have a title for. Car title loans are an alternative lending solution for people who have bad credit, people who need money in a hurry, or anyone that does not want to deal with traditional bank loans. Title loans are different that auto pawn loans; with an auto title loan, you keep your car and drive as usual. On the other hand, with an auto pawn loan, the lender will keep your vehicle for the duration of the loan.
