Title Loans in Chicago, IL

Chicago, IL, is a diverse environment that’s home to Fortune 500 companies, sporting events, and entertainment. It’s also a city that has a robust economy and colorful history. Unfortunately, being a resident of the Windy City doesn’t shelter you from emergencies and unpredictable expenses. When you’re hit with an urgent situation such as damage to your home or an unexpected medical bill, the cost may be more than what your budget can handle. If this happens, you may need to borrow money from an outside source; however, for many, getting those funds can be complicated. If you are short on time, have credit issues or not sure if your credit is good enough for other types of loans, or you want to avoid exorbitantly high-interest rates and unreasonable terms, you might start to feel overwhelmed and disheartened with your choices. Fortunately, we’re here to help!


TitleMax®, is one of the largest title lending companies in the U.S. trusted by 1,000’s of people each day who need financial assistance in Chicago. Title loans from TitleMax® offer competitive rates and a way for people with imperfect credit scores to get the cash they need when a financial emergency strikes.

With our car title loans, Chicago residents who drive can use the value of their vehicle as collateral. We offer loans for other types of vehicles, too, not just cars: If you have a truck or an SUV, we can help you. If you own a motorcycle, we can help you, too: Just apply for one of our motorcycle title loans. Once you are approved for a title loan, we’ll keep your title until you’ve paid off the loan in full. Although your title is being used as collateral, your vehicle will stay in your possession so that you can continue driving it to work or wherever you need to go in Chicago. Title loans from TitleMax® can also be paid off early without fear of penalties.

There are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet to qualify to borrow with us. To be eligible for our car title loans, Chicago residents must be 18 years old and have a valid government-issued ID. The vehicle that you are using to secure the loan must have a lien-free title, and the title must be in your name. When you’re getting a title loan in Chicago, you must also be able to show proof that you have some form of income. This shows us that you have the means to pay back your title loan. Although you must show proof of income, being unemployed does not automatically render you ineligible for a title loan: We accept unemployment checks, retirement benefits, or disability payments as proof of income as well. Get started online, apply now, and get same day cash in about 30 minutes.

Car title loans in Chicago, and in Illinois in general, have a maximum loan amount of $4,000, and the amount you’re approved for will be based on several factors, including the appraised value of your vehicle.
