“We’re here to help liberate our clients from the stress and uncertainty that come with filing for bankruptcy. Our program not only helps get you into a new car, but begins rebuilding credit immediately.”
A question we often hear is “What is it like working with so many female leaders in one company?”, and the answer is simple. Working together allows us to inspire each other, support each other, uplift each other, and help each other reach our full potential. Bk Car Education USA and sister company File and Drive USA is operated by a team of women that all have the same mission. That mission is to help people.
What We Do
Bk Car Education USA and sister company File & Drive USA are unique programs that help its clients get into a new auto loan while [the client] is in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. We assist in getting our client approved for a quality, pre-owned vehicle with little to no money down, and monthly payments they can afford. The day of filing for bankruptcy is the day their new vehicle is delivered directly to their door! We’ll even pick up the old car if it needs to be surrendered during the client’s bankruptcy filing.
Our clients get referred to us by a network of Bankruptcy Attorneys across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia, and Michigan. We also help clients who do not yet have an attorney. We can recommend many trustworthy bankruptcy attorneys that have our clients best interest at heart.
Our team of experts are here to help clients that are in the most vulnerable position in their lives. We’re here to help liberate our clients from the stress and uncertainty that come with filing for bankruptcy. Our program not only helps get you into a new car, but begins rebuilding credit immediately. New auto loans report directly to the credit bureau, often before the bankruptcy even reports to it! This means our clients rebuild credit from the first day of filing for bankruptcy.
Our selection of inventory is provided by pre-owned car dealerships across northeast Ohio. We’ve created strong relationships with dealerships in order to use their license to process loans. Thanks to our network of dealerships, our approval rates stay at an all time high, and allow for a wide selection of vehicles for our clients to choose from. What does this mean for the client? It keeps them out of the dealership, and away from aggressive pushy sales people.
Through our program, attorneys have a better option for their clients than 722 redemption! In most cases, the credit bureau reports the vehicle as included in the bankruptcy. This report will not help clients improve their credit. In addition, consumers that have auto loans prior to filing are harboring a large amount of negative equity. A vehicle’s estimated book value is usually not worth the true value. By choosing 722 Redemption or reaffirmation, this negative equity will carry over post-bankruptcy. The better option is to surrender the old vehicle, and start fresh in a new vehicle, with a new auto loan.
