1. GENERAL 

What is a title loan?
A title loan or title pawn is a quick and easy way to get the cash you need, using your vehicle’s title for collateral instead of your credit score. Title loans are available in South Carolina, while title pawns are available in Georgia.

Georgia residents have 30 days to repay their title pawn. If you are unable to pay off the balance within 30 days, Auto Money’s professional and courteous staff is available to discuss repayment options with you.

Disclaimer for South Carolinians: This is a high interest loan. You should go to another source if you have the ability to borrow at a lower rate of interest. You are placing your vehicle at risk if you default on this loan.

How much cash can I get for my title?

Up to $20,000* cash! The amount of your title loan or title pawn is based off the value and condition of your vehicle as well as how much you want to borrow.

What type of vehicles are eligible?
You can get cash for your title on many different types of vehicles including cars, trucks, motorcycles and more. For non-typical vehicles, it can be dependent on the location. If you are unsure if your vehicle is eligible, just head over to our Store Locator page and call your local Auto Money office for more information.
What if I have fair credit or bad credit?

It does not matter if you have good credit, fair credit or bad credit, we can help. Auto Money does not check your credit when you apply. We use your vehicle’s title as collateral for the money you borrow, which means your credit score has no effect on the amount of cash you receive.

Do I need to be employed for approval of a secured title loan?

Is a title loan better than a payday loan?

What is the difference between loan and title?

How and when do I get my title back?
