How do I get a signature loan for a car?

I want to purchase a car from my neighbor for $4,000, but I don't have the cash. I also can't get a car loan because the amount is too low. How can I get a signature loan for it?

It’s good you’re thinking about options, but before you try to get a signature loan, you might still want to shop around for a car loan, as some lenders, like Capital One, often will approve loans for this amount.
If that doesn’t work, you can attempt to get a signature loan. Also known as a personal loan, a signature loan is an unsecured loan that doesn’t require any collateral. Instead, you simply have to qualify based on your credit score and income. If you have a strong credit score and the income to cover the loan, you shouldn’t have too many problems qualifying for a signature loan.
The downside with a signature loan, however, is that you typically will have higher interest rates and less time to pay back the loan.
You’ll also need to make sure that you have car insurance for your vehicle. To get the best rates possible, use the Jerry app. Sign up in less than a minute to compare quotes from dozens of providers. Jerry will even take care of the paperwork for you!
