    Payoff Questions

    How do I get my auto loan payoff amount?
    To get the most accurate payoff amount for your auto loan, please give us a call or visit your local Wasatch Peaks branch.

    What is the best way to pay off an auto loan?
    The best way to pay off your auto loan is to visit your local Wasatch branch with the funds to pay off the loans, whether that’s cash or check. Please make sure you have your current address on the account, or update the address with us, so we can send you the vehicle title.

    When will I receive my title after I pay-off my loan?
    You will typically receive your title within 5-10 business days.

    My car has been totaled, but my insurance payout doesn’t cover my loan. What do I do?
    You will continue to be responsible for your regular payments until the loan is paid off in full. To help alleviate situations like, you may want to consider getting Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance. This will also provide a payout, which may cover the remaining balance of your loan or will help lower your loan payoff amount.
