Individuals who have had credit problems – or who have not yet established credit – may consider Tallahassee dealers with “tote the note” financing for their next car purchase. These establishments often advertise themselves as “Buy Here, Pay Here” dealerships, where customers can make payments directly to the seller. Often, “tote the note” dealers set up in low-income neighborhoods where people are most likely to have credit or income difficulties, as these consumers are prime “tote the note” customers.
One common problem with Tallahassee tote the note dealers is the quality (or lack thereof) of the vehicles they stock. Often, these cars carry high mileage and suffer from significant maintenance and repair issues. They may have been reconstructed after severe accidents and present alignment or other structural issues. However, Tallahassee dealers with tote the note financing often highly inflate vehicle prices beyond fair market value.
One of the major drawbacks to Tallahassee dealers with tote the note financing is a serious lack of flexibility. While they do offer easy financing to those with bad credit, they are usually accompanied by shady terms. That’s because they may be skating around financing regulations set by the government to protect you, the consumer.
