Buy Here Pay Here Independence, MO

It’s a fact: owning a vehicle can be expensive. It’s also a fact that most of us can’t live without one. We all need a reliable method for getting to and from work, school, and other activities, especially in areas where public transportation is limited or non-existent. Plus, many of us rely on our vehicles to get the job done, whether you drive from client to client, job site to job site, or use a truck to haul and tow massive loads. But, if you need a car and you have bad credit, your best bet for shopping isn't going to be through traditional financing, but through a dealership that offers Buy Here, Pay Here. Independence, MO, is home to one of our Auto Now Buy Here, Pay Here dealerships, and we can help you get the car you need.

Having a car, truck, or SUV is an absolute necessity for many people. But if you have bad credit, it can be harder to get a safe, dependable vehicle. Getting a typical loan can be difficult, and many of the vehicles that fit in your available cash payment budget don’t meet the general standards of “safe and dependable.” So where can you get cars with bad credit?

Auto Now understands. As a Buy Here, Pay Here dealership providing vehicles to those across the Kansas City and Missouri areas, we specialize in helping those with bad credit get access to reliable vehicles. Auto Now was established in 1996 with the goal of supporting the community by matching dependable automobiles with the people who need them. Locally and family-owned, we’ve helped thousands of drivers with bad credit drive away in a vehicle they can truly appreciate and enjoy for years to come.

What is Buy Here, Pay Here?

For those unfamiliar with the “Buy Here, Pay Here” business model, it’s actually quite simple! Basically, the dealership is both the seller and the lender in this scenario. At a conventional car dealership, you have the opportunity to browse inventory, followed by negotiation, a loan application, and searching for just the right loan at just the right rate for just the right vehicle. It can be very stressful and time-consuming.

At Auto Now, we discuss your financial situation first, so everyone is on the same page. We discuss your budget, as well as what you need from a vehicle, your down payment, and work from there to find the right match for you. We work with you to find a monthly payment and loan terms that will work for you. That means no back and forth negotiating, no hidden fees, no giant stack of paperwork, and no waiting around endlessly while a faceless “Finance Team” searches for “A Great Rate.” Everything is upfront and transparent.

All you need to drive away with a great vehicle is a valid driver’s license, at least $1200 in income each month (after taxes), and be at least 18 years old. To finalize the loan, you’ll just need to present your driver’s license, pay stubs, a utility bill, a phone bill, and a cash or money order down payment. Within 30 minutes, you can be driving into the next chapter of your life with a reliable automobile!

We specialize in short term loans at Auto Now, which allows you to pay off your new-to-you vehicle in as little time as possible. While a traditional loan can range from 60 to 72 months, our loan payments range from $50-$100 each week, allowing drivers to have the title in hand as quickly as possible.

In fact, all of the vehicles offered by Auto Now come with a 24-month/24,000-mile powertrain warranty. This warranty pays for covered parts and labor after a $200 deductible for mechanical issues, including the engine, transmission, starter, alternator, and air conditioning.

Our inventory is constantly changing as new vehicles arrive, but our typical selection ranges in price from $6,500 to $21,000.
