So, when you give us your car title, we give you cash. For auto title loan or pawn services, a vehicle and the vehicle’s title are required to be approved for a loan. Then, once you repay the loan, you get your car title back. A car title loan is a simple way to get the cash you need, but there are plenty other ways to make money, too.
