Personal Pawns Don’t Require Collateral, But Need Good Credit

A “personal pawn” usually refers to a loan made by a bank, credit union, or an online lender, which is not “secured” by any collateral like a vehicle. That means you can’t get a personal pawn against our vehicle title from most banks and online lenders.

Instead, personal pawns are issued based on your credit score and credit history, as well as other factors like your income. This is what determines whether or not you’re eligible, so if you don’t have great credit, it may not be possible to get a personal pawn.

So, what choice do you have if you want to get a personal loan? The best option is car title pawns near your location.

A Title Pawn Lets You Borrow Against Your Vehicle Title

Auto title pawns are different from personal pawns. They let you borrow money against the value of your vehicle. Because you use your car as collateral, the title company could legally repossess your car if you fail to pay your pawn, however that is not the main objective.

Panhandle Title lets you get the money you need even if you have a bad credit score. For this reason, title loans are the preferred option if you want to get a personal loan against your vehicle title. Your credit doesn’t matter, so it’s easy to qualify.

How Do I Qualify for a Title Pawn?

Every title lender has slightly different requirements, but they tend to be quite similar. For example, Panhandle Title can provide you with a title loan as long as you meet the following qualifications:

  • You own your car and have a “free and clear” title, meaning you’re not making any payments on it. Your title must also be in your name
  • You can provide your vehicle to us for a quick 5-minute inspection
  • You can prove your current place of residence
  • You make at least $1,000 per month in net income (income after taxes, deductions, etc.)

If you meet these qualifications, you can get a vehicle title loan from Panhandle Title, even if you have bad credit or no credit at all.
