Flag of the State of California Sometimes life in the Golden State doesn’t feel so golden. Stuff breaks, luck runs out, and you know that kind of thing happens all the time. So when you’re down on your luck and you need an installment loan to fix what’s broken, where in California can you find one?

You know it’s bound to happen: your truck needs a new transmission in Turlock. Or, maybe there’s a Sig-Alert and you’re stuck in gridlock on the freeway. Of course, your car overheats. You’re going to need a tow, a rental car, and a new radiator. When your California Bank and Trust account is emptier than the Salton Sea –an installment loan could be the answer to all your problems.

Warranties always seem to expire right before the product breaks. If you need a new refrigerator in Redwood City, a laptop in L.A., or a washer and dryer in Sacramento – and you don’t have the cash – an installment loan can bail you out.

There are some things insurance just doesn’t cover – what about the deductible you have to pay because you banged your head surfing in Santa Cruz? What if a bunch of trees fall across your driveway during an earthquake in Irvine? Or, maybe your dog bites your neighbor in Norwalk, and you have to pay for his stitches? An installment loan can make those things happen, even if you have bad credit.
