How do you get a car title loan online?

I work odd hours and usually can't make it to businesses before they close. I had a couple of emergencies pop up this month and had to take time off, but I don't have PTO. I have bad credit, so I can't get a bank loan or credit loan. I own a car and have the title. How do you get a car title loan online?

I’m sorry to hear that it’s been such a rough month. You can get a car title loan online, but you should research lenders before signing an agreement. You’ll want to verify that the lender is registered with your state. You can start with:
  • The Better Business Bureau
  • Your state’s attorney general
  • Your state’s financial regulations office
Title loans are illegal in more than half of the 50 states because of their high-interest rates and short-term lengths.
Some online lenders that operate in the states where title loans are legal include:
  • Loan Mart
  • Max Cash Title Loans
  • American Auto Title Loan
  • Title Max
  • Loan Center
After selecting a lender that you know is legit, check to see what they require to approve the loan and follow the steps they give you. Generally, they will require:
  • The title
  • Driver’s license
  • Pay stubs
  • Utility bill
Another option despite your bad credit is your bank or credit union. You’ll likely need a cosigner with good credit, but it would be a better idea than a title loan.
