Can I use my car title to get a loan?

I recently moved into a larger apartment and I need to buy new furniture and appliances. However, the moving fees were more expensive than anticipated, and my budget is pretty tight as it is. I don’t want the hassle of taking out a loan through my bank. Can I use my car title to get a loan?

Answer
Congratulations, having a larger apartment to call home must be a nice feeling! To help cover the moving fees and purchase new furniture and appliances, you can use your vehicle’s title to apply for a car title loan.
A car title loan is a high-interest, short-term secured loan that uses your vehicle as collateral. The repayment period is typically 30 to 60 days. If the loan isn’t paid back within that time frame, the lender can repossess your vehicle to cover the debt. Requirements vary by lender, but to apply for the loan, you need the following:
  • Completed loan application
  • Vehicle title and registration
  • Driver’s license
  • Proof of insurance
Keep in mind that title loans tend to have expensive monthly fees and a high annual percentage rate (APR).
Because of these exorbitant costs, taking out a bank loan is actually worth the effort. If you’re really hesitant about a bank loan, consider using a credit card or asking friends and family for a loan to avoid putting your vehicle at risk of repossession.
