How to apply for ATV financing
Whether you know the exact powersports vehicle you want to purchase or you’re shopping around, getting preapproved will make the shopping and purchasing process easier and quicker. Fill out a form on LendingTree to get possible loan amounts as well as rates and terms from up to five lenders, depending on your creditworthiness.
To get preapproved, you’ll need the following items:
Social Security number
Powersport make and year (it’s OK if you’re still shopping for a vehicle)
Estimated purchase price
TIP: When calculating your estimated purchase price, make sure to include equipment you may need such as a helmet, gloves and other protective gear, as well as sales tax and registration fees.
What type of powersports financing is right for you?
A powersports loan from a bank
Banks tend to have great name recognition, 24/7 customer service and versatile mobile apps. However, some banks may not offer powersports or ATV loans, and those that do may not have the best available rates.
ATV financing through a credit union
Credit unions tend to offer lower loan rates than banks. Some have minimal requirements for membership, such as Consumers Credit Union, which only requires a one-time donation of $5.
Borrowing from an online lender
LightStream, the online lending arm of Truist, had the lowest average closed loan rate for powersports borrowers who applied through the LendingTree platform in 2020. But some online lenders offering unsecured personal loans may have higher rates than what you could get elsewhere.
ATV, Jet Ski and snowmobile loans from the manufacturer
Powersports manufacturers, such as Honda, Polaris and Yamaha, may offer financing for the powersports vehicle you want. Depending on the model and when you’re looking to buy, the manufacturer may also offer a rebate as a financing incentive. You may need good to excellent credit to qualify for rebates or low-APR financing.
Powersport financing through the dealership
Most dealers will help you find financing with a lender such as a bank, credit union or manufacturer. But they typically are not themselves lenders. So-called “buy-here, pay-here” dealers may charge high prices and high APRs. If one of the traditional loans we’ve already mentioned isn’t a good fit for you, consider using a credit card, ideally paired with a hefty down payment, or paying cash.
