Put money down.

Depending on your budget, this may seem like a tough proposition. But you might be sitting on a decent trade in, which would double as your down payment on a new or used vehicle. By putting money down up front, you are not only able to shorten the term of your lease, but also potentially get a better loan rate overall - minimizing the amount of interest you’ll be paying in the long run. 


Keep it short

As much as you can afford in monthly payments, a short-term loan will pay dividends in the long run. This translates to fewer interest payments and of course a quicker path to owning your car or truck outright. 


And when it comes to loan approval, Schicker Ford has everything you need to get you approved and rolling in no time. Apply online for rapid, easy pre-approval in minutes.
