Many auto insurance companies examine consumer credit information when deciding whether to issue or renew an insurance policy and how much to charge for vehicle coverage. Since bankruptcies can hurt a consumer’s credit history for up to 10 years, this means a person who has one on record is likely to see higher insurance prices.
If you have been asking yourself ‘Can I buy a car after bankruptcy’; the answer is ‘Yes’. But before you go looking for ways and means for buying a car with bankruptcy, you should challenge your decision of buying a car in bankruptcy. If your finances are not in order (and bankruptcy is a proof of that), then can you really afford to buy a car?
