About lender

Rocket Funds is a Canadian financial organization that provides customers with relatively small loans to repair their vehicles. The company runs no credit checks, does not rely on its client’s employment status, and bases its credit decisions solely on the vehicle under consideration. As a result, the company pledges rapidly to get its customers back on the road. Theses can submit inquiries and receive swift responses within 24 hours.

Rocket Funds provides services that could be attractive to business people. For example, Rocket Funds offers entrepreneurs car service stations advertising their loans. In addition, customers can repair their vehicles at the stations where they come across the Rocket Funds ad.

To apply and get approved, a client must find the prequalification application form and fill it out.

Features

Rocket Funds has a peculiar feature that differentiates this company from other lenders: it only provides loans for vehicle repairs: mechanical problems, tires and rims, and electrical repairs. Funds are also available for general maintenance, automotive accessories, and upgrades.

Credit decisions are based on the existing value of the vehicle under consideration. The loan amount is based on the customer’s vehicle: its model, year, and other required data.

Also, Rocket Funds doesn’t perform any credit checks and doesn’t verify the customer’s employment status. Instead, Rocket Funds’ loans are secured using the customer’s car value, making approval rules easier.

The Rocket Funds’ loans are open loans. Therefore, the company will not charge extra penalties if a client decides to pay off sooner. However, the company charges several fees anyway. First, there are two setup fees: an administration fee of $69 and a lien registration fee of $29.

Besides, the company provides services that can be useful for business people owning car service stations. For example, the company offers entrepreneurs advertising vehicle repair loans. This way, entrepreneurs’ customers can use these services immediately instead of putting off needed repairs.
