Car Title Loan and Death: Paying for a Funeral

Paul

flowers carTFC Title Loans always discusses covering emergency costs like home repairs, medical emergencies, or to cover a missed payment. While we may not talk about it often, a car title loan and death in the family could help you grieve them properly. Let a car title loan from TFC Title Loans help cover the cost of an unexpected funeral.

About Car Title Loans

You may be wondering how a car title loan could possible help you cover the costs of a funeral. A car title loan is unlike a traditional alone because it allows you to use your vehicle’s title as collateral for the loan. Instead of using your credit score to determine your loan amount and interest rate, TFC Title Loans uses the equity value in your car and your ability to pay back the loan. Based on the value of your car, you can receive funds between $2,500 to $50,000.

TFC has been in the business of car title loans since 1994. We’ve helped thousands of customers pay for unexpected financial emergencies. We’ve heard many different reasons for why people need a car title loan, and a funeral has come up before. Sometimes, funerals can be unplanned when the death is unexpected. We don’t plan for those costs and, quite frankly, who wants to plan for somebody’s death? That’s why TFC allows any customer, regardless of credit, to apply for a car title loan.

Car Title Loans Regardless of Credit Score

Even if you don’t have a perfect credit score, TFC Title Loans can help you with a car title loan. One of the best things about a car title loan is that you don’t need to go through all the paperwork and credit checks required at traditional banks.

Because we use the title of your vehicle as collateral of the loan, that means you don’t need to worry about TFC Title Loans using your credit score as an influencer towards the amount of money you would receive. Instead, we take the title of your vehicle, give you 50% of the wholesale value, and fluctuate that amount based on the ability to pay back income. The only time we check your credit is to make sure you aren’t actively seeking bankruptcy or credit counseling.

No job? Don’t worry about that! As long as you have a steady flow of income, whether it be retirement, social security, disability, unemployment, or an annuity, that counts as a monthly income and gives you the ability to pay back the car title loan you receive from TFC.

Car Title Loan and Death: Costs of Funerals

If you’re trying to prepare for the cost of the funeral to plan for how much you’ll need, TFC Title Loans has the answers for you. A traditional funeral in North America is equal to about $7,000 to $10,000. That’s quite a lot of money for an unexpected emergency. Luckily, TFC offers funds from $2,500 all the way to $50,000 based on the value of your car.

This cost typically includes the services of the funeral home, the burial, and the installation of a headstone. To give you a breakdown of where you may need to cut money or spend it:

  • Funeral director services: $1,500
  • Casket: $2,300
  • Use of funeral home: $500
  • Grave site: $1,000
  • Grave liner/burial container: $1,000
  • Headstone: $500

Some additional charges may include the obituary in the local newspaper and flowers.

If your relative or friend preferred a cremation, this could put you at about $2,000 to $4,000. If you have the procedure done at a funeral home, it could be upwards of $4,000 to $6,000 where a crematory is only $3,000 to $4,000. This includes the cost of the cremation and a basic memorial service.
