A Michigan organization dedicated to helping consumers avoid auto theft and fraudulent auto sales has released a series of tips to protect car buyers this summer.
H.E.A.T., or Help Eliminated Auto Thefts, first and foremost recommends that car buyers avoid buying a vehicle online. This doesn’t mean that car buyers shouldn’t research vehicles, browse inventories, or apply for an auto loan application, but ultimately the transaction should happen in person through an actual dealership. Craig’s List is great for buying a cheap couch or job hunting, but it is not suited for purchasing a vehicle.
H.E.A.T. also provided other recommendations like meeting at the Secretary of State and double-checking all vehicle information including the VIN, but the easiest way to avoid all of these problems is to shop for a new or used car through Approved Loan Store. Approved Loan Store offers the convenience of applying online while also providing the security of a physical store. Our finance specialists work face-to-face with our customers to make sure they get the car that they want at terms they can afford.
