In business, we all balance risks and returns. We consider how much we need to spend or invest and what we expect to get back. Consumers do it when they buy homes, appliances or cars. Auto dealers do it when they hire staff, purchase technology – or partner with lenders. At Exeter, we’ve worked hard to mitigate those risks with our proven track record since 2006, our flexible buying structures and our increased purchasing power. We’ve shown dealers real returns when they click us and close more.

More than 1 million served

We work with more than 13,000 franchised and independent automobile dealerships nationwide. That has allowed us to help more than one million customers since 2006 as we partner with franchised and independent auto dealers coast to coast. We’re the fourth-largest non-prime auto lender in the country offering dealers a low-risk, high-return lending option. Put our stability and innovation to work for your dealership. Make Exeter one of your preferred lenders, and we’ll help you increase your sales.

Expanded buying power

Exeter offers dealers non-prime and near-prime application programs with expanded buying power. Our program tiers reflect extended term and mileage advantages, and we provide generous guaranteed back-end. We finance up to $50,000, accept zero-FICO deals and don’t penalize our dealer partners for submitted application volume. It’s all designed to help them reach 10 funded contracts per quarter so they can earn Exeter Elite status and receive three subsequent months of exclusive extras.

We start with smart, integrated technology and couple it with data to create automated processes that are efficient, effective and streamlined. It all allows us to make decisions in as little as 15 seconds, fund deals in as little as two business days and keep our buying programs nimble and competitive. We deliver it all through our optimized DealerPortal, which allows dealers to check the status of any deal, upload documents in seconds and rehash in real time.
