Your Auto Loan Product Experts are Just a Click Away

Have you ever had a moment like this?

It’s late in the afternoon, and you’re finalizing an auto loan. You've presented the borrower with a fully protected payment, which includes products that will:

  • Pay the difference between the Actual Cash Value (ACV) of their vehicle and their loan balance in the event of a total loss

  • Pay off the loan if they should unexpectedly pass away

  • Make their monthly payments if they suffer a disability or involuntarily lose their job

  • Pay for costly mechanical repairs

Everything is going along well, when suddenly, the borrower says, “I’m adding 26-inch tires to this truck, but I’ve heard that it may void some protection plans. Will the mechanical protection plan that you’re offering allow me to have 26-inch tires on my vehicle?”

That’s a great question from someone who has clearly done their homework. The problem is, off the top of your head, you don’t know the answer.

So, you begin searching your desk for that handy reference card with all of the manufacturer numbers listed on it, but it’s nowhere to be found. And, of course, this HAS to be the day that you’re the only lender in the office, so there is no one you can ask…

You need to find the answer to this question ASAP, but how?!?

Here is what Ashleigh Johnstun, Central Lending Representative from Cyprus Credit Union, had to say about Live Chat:  

“I love the live chat! Each time I use it, the agent is so quick to respond that I can have the member on the phone at the same time. It’s almost as convenient as turning around to ask my coworker the question.”
