At McLeod Auto Sales, we know you have plenty of auto dealerships to choose from. That’s why we work so hard to make our Texas car dealership stand out from the pack. One way we do that is by providing advice you can rely on.

Whether you want to buy a 2019 Ford F-150 or one of our used Ford F-150 trucks has caught your eye, you may plan to apply for an auto loan to pay for the pickup. We know it can be stressful when you apply for a car loan, which is why we thought it would be a good idea to share some tips that can help you apply for a loan successfully.

Preparation is the key to securing an auto loan. When you apply for a loan, you’ll need to provide some documentation. The first thing you’ll need to provide is proof of your identity. You’ll also have to share proof of where you live. In general, a recent utility bill or bank statement that shows your current address will be sufficient to document where you live.

You’ll need to provide proof of your income as well. If you work for an employer, you can prove your income by sharing a few recent pay stubs. People who are self-employed will usually have to provide copies of their federal tax returns from the past year or two to prove their income.

If you plan to trade-in your current vehicle, you’ll need to present your car’s registration when you visit our car dealership near Fort Hood, TX. Drivers who own their trade will also need to provide their automobile’s title.

If you have all the documents necessary to apply for an auto loan, submit an application to get pre-approved to our Killeen, TX finance center now.
