“Most banks don’t do car title loans.
Instead, they’ll offer similar products to what you’ll get at a title loan place, but without the predatory lending practices often associated with car title loan companies.
If you need quick cash and own a car, you should ask your bank about a cash-out refinance, especially if you have average or above-average credit.
Be careful of taking out more than your car is worth, though, because you could end up upside down.
You may also be eligible for a small personal loan. Either way, the interest rate will be far lower than what you’d pay at a title loan place.”
