Learn what you need to know about pre-approval
Once you have all your information in place and are ready to apply for your motorcycle loan, how do you go about getting pre-approved? Is it worth the effort? You may even be asking, “What exactly is pre-approval?” We’re here to answer your questions.
How Do You Apply for Pre-Approval?
You start by submitting a preliminary application for your loan. After we review your credit standing and other factors discussed above, if you qualify, we can recommend a loan. We’ll tell you how much you can borrow, the interest rate, and what the terms of the loan will be.
Is There a Commitment?
When you get pre-approved, you don’t have to make any commitment to get the loan. It’s just ammunition to help you negotiate your motorcycle purchase with the dealer. You can always change your mind. To pre-approve you, we would make sure that your financial standing details are confirmed. Then once you choose a bike, we will need to make sure the loan is worth the value of your purchase before final approval.
Why Get Pre-approval?
First, you’ll know exactly how much you can borrow. (You can get a rough idea by viewing our motorcycle loan rate page or using our motorcycle loan calculator.) This way you save yourself time and trouble by focusing on the type of bikes you can reasonably afford.
You can also go into negotiations with the confidence of someone who has cash in hand; you know you can obtain the amount needed, which can also make pricing clearer from a dealer who might otherwise try to sell you on financing options.
