by | Sep 30, 2020

Auto Repair Shops That Take Payments

As we’ve established previously, smaller auto mechanics are less likely to have financing. For this reason, the list below is all national chains that have locations spread throughout the US. The list below is not intended to be exhaustive, but you should be able to use it find a mechanic locally.

These auto mechanics all have financing offered, although their rates vary. All things considered, using an auto repair credit card is usually the best option if you can pay off the entire repair balance during the 0% APR introductory period.

Looking through this list, you’ll notice most of the companies have very similar terms. This is because one company largely dominates auto financing.

The company is called Synchrony – and it’s a consumer financial services firm headquartered in Connecticut, that manages financing for nearly every major car repair company. There are also several cards run by CitiGroup, which manages credit for Monroe Muffler.
