Thanks to advancements in technology, there are various options for making your car loan payments.
Once you open your loan, you can authorize the lender to draw your payment from your checking or savings account on the due date. This is easy, free, and enables you to have a perfect on-time payment record.
If you prefer to have a bit more control, the same effect can be had by setting up a recurring payment to the lender through your online banking account. You can adjust the amount or the payment date any time you need to.
Then there are the more old-fashioned approaches: you can write a personal check and mail it to the lender, or you can make your payment in person with cash, a check, or a money order.
