However, there's no need to worry. Our dealership collaborates with Canada's top financial institutions to secure competitive financing and leasing alternatives for our customers, tailored to their specific requirements.
Bad credit or no credit

Our financing experts are ready to work with you to find an affordable solution that fits your financial goals, regardless of your credit situation.
New to Canada
If you're moving to Canada or have just arrived, it's essential to note that your credit score from your previous location won't carry over. But don't worry, we can assist you in obtaining loan approval at our dealership, even if you don't have an established credit history in Canada. With our help, you can be on your way to purchasing your first car in Canada in no time.
High rate on an existing loan
By buying out your existing loan through our parent company, Go Auto, we can assist you in lowering your payment and securing a better finance rate. This way, you can refinance your loan and save money on your monthly payments.
What do I need to
Employment & income
Typically, meeting the eligibility criteria for a loan requires having a job at your present employer for a minimum of three months and a monthly income of no less than $1,800. Nevertheless, certain categories of government aid may also be deemed as suitable sources of income.
Although not always required, a down payment can be advantageous. Reducing the loan amount typically improves the chances of obtaining approval for a car loan from the lender.
You need a valid driver’s license and must be the age of majority in the province that you live in.
Please bring your current address details, including your monthly rent or mortgage payment, to your appointment.
In order to facilitate monthly payments, lenders prefer to deduct the payment amount directly from your bank account. The most convenient method of achieving this is by providing a void cheque or a stamped pre-authorized payment form.
Please provide your full name, date of birth, phone number and email address when you come to your appointment.
Finance vs. lease?
When deciding on financing versus leasing, what's right for one person can be totally wrong for another.
Paying off your Terrace Lincoln car loan
Paying off your loan early
Most banks allow you to pay off your remaining balance after a specific period, which is commonly six months. We recommend verifying with your bank or contacting us to ascertain if this choice is accessible to you.
Changes to payments
Almost all banks and lenders let car loan customers make lump-sum payments or increase their regular payments. Contact us or your lender for more information.
Extending a loan term
Once a loan agreement has been signed, it is typically binding, and most lenders do not offer extensions. You may confirm with our finance specialists or contact your lender directly to inquire if an extension is an available option.
Car loan insurance
Were you aware that you can also obtain insurance for your car loan? In the event of a job loss or illness, how would you manage to make your regular payments? Insurance coverage can provide you with protection against such unforeseen circumstances. Contact us about this type of insurance.
If you have a low income, you can still qualify for a loan! Earning $1,800 a month or more can mean you can be approved for a car loan.
Switching a loan to another vehicle
If you're thinking of getting a different vehicle but currently have a car loan, we can provide assistance. Our team can assist you in choosing your next car, settling your current car loan, and including any remaining balance in your new contract.

Is it better to finance through Lincoln or the bank?

How do I report a total loss by my insurance company to Lincoln?
If your financed vehicle has been declared a total loss, the first step you should take is to contact your vehicle insurance company. Once you and your insurance company have agreed on a settlement, the insurance company will issue a cheque payable to all policyholders and Lincoln Automotive Financial Services. After receiving the cheque, ensure that all payees sign the back of the cheque and mail it to the following address: Box 1800 RPO Lakeshore West, Oakville, ON L6K 0J8. You should then contact Lincoln Automotive Financial Services for further instructions.
If you are a lease customer and your vehicle has been written off, please contact your vehicle insurance company to obtain a claim number. After receiving the claim number, contact Lincoln Automotive Financial Services, and we will work with your insurance company to settle the claim. Once the settlement has been reached, we will provide you with further instructions.
It is important to keep in mind that if the insurance settlement is less than the amount remaining on your loan, you are responsible for the outstanding balance. Conversely, if the insurance settlement is more than the remaining balance on your loan, Lincoln Automotive Financial Services will issue a refund cheque for the difference.
