Repossessed Auto and Other Collateral – For Sale!
Utah Heritage Credit Union loans on autos, recreational vehicles and other assets. From time to time, members may have financial difficulties and may not be able to make a payment. The credit union’s philosophy is to help these members keep their vehicles when possible. To help out members, we can sometimes lower their interest rates and change the terms in order to lower their payments.
However, there are times when the best option is to repossess the vehicle and sell the collateral. Many members facing these difficulties voluntarily turn in their vehicles and we sell the asset for them.
It is our responsibility to sell a “repossession” for as much as possible in order to lower the amount a distressed member has owing on their account. In order do this, the credit union has a bidding process to get the highest possible price.
