First-Time Car Buyers Can Get In-House Financing for Used Cars in Our Inventory

Conveniently for first-time car buyers, Auto Bank offers all services under one roof, including financing, regardless of credit score. Unlike traditional dealerships whose finance partners are major banks or credit unions that care deeply about what TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax have to say about your situation, Auto Bank only cares about your ability to repay your loan now.

We don’t run credit checks on our customers, and instead ask that you provide a copy of your most recent pay stubs to prove your income. This information, along with a government-issued photo ID and proof of your address, such as a utility bill, is plenty for us to determine whether we’ll approve you for a loan. We approve anyone who can demonstrate their ability to repay us based on their income, and if we don’t approve you, you’re eligible for 10k!

In short, our policies make it easy to buy a used car for sale in Kansas City, regardless of past debts or missed payments. These policies are especially helpful for first-time car buyers who may not have had a chance to build their credit.
