How Do Pink Slip Loans Work?

Pink slip loans, otherwise known as title loans or auto title loans, are a type of secured loan. A borrower uses the title of their car as collateral to secure the loan. The “pink slip” refers to the certificate of title for a vehicle, which is used to establish the ownership of a vehicle. 

Title lenders will place a lien on the title to your car after the loan is complete, and they have the right to repossess the vehicle if you default on the loan and do not pay it back. 

It’s called a pink slip loan because, in some states, car titles were printed on pink slips of paper. Pink pieces of paper were used to prevent drivers from losing this important document. Even though this practice has declined over the years, the name has stuck. Today, many people refer to pink slip loans as title loans, car title loans, or auto title loans. Generally, people who need emergency cash but do not have an ideal credit rating can apply for pink slip loans. Since they are secured by collateral, title loans can have a more flexible application process!1

Can I Get Pink Slip Loans with Bad Credit?

Generally, a good credit score is not required to qualify for a pink slip loan, although a credit check is typically an important part of the application process. However, other factors may be more consequential during the approval process, such as your income and ability to repay the loan.1

A FICO credit score below 580 is considered to be a “bad” credit score. When your credit score is low, you may have difficulty obtaining approval for unsecured loans, renting an apartment, or even getting a job. But, because you can pledge your car title as collateral for the loan, the title loan application process is a lot more flexible and convenient. People with bad or no credit can potentially qualify for a pink slip loan.1

Do I Need a Job to Get a Pink Slip Loan?

No, you do not need a traditional job to apply for a pink slip loan. However, in order to qualify for a pink slip loan, you must provide sufficient evidence that you will be able to repay the loan.1
