Without these 2 guys I wouldn’t have gotten the deal done. Thanks guys!!JARP 3020JARP 3020 ★★★★★ Xyrine made the process of purchasing my car very simple. When I first spoke to her and she fully explained the process - I couldn't believe it would be that simple, but that is exactly how it went. After what I call the "double-talk" and "run-around" I had experienced with specialty car dealers, regular auto dealers, and credit unions, I had thought about scrapping the idea until I spoke with her about it. I am happy with how everything went. She also connected me with a Hagarty Insurance agent who understands the muscle car world. Now, I am just waiting for the car to arrive.I would recommend Woodside Credit to anyone who is looking to purchase a specialty, exotic, or muscle car.KandD KandDKandD KandD ★★★★★ Amir from woodside was awesome / a pleasure to work with!

Thanks Scott and TeamGBDavid HamDavid Ham ★★★★★ Amazing!!brad crowebrad crowe ★★★★★ Ryan GoldbergRyan Goldberg ★★★★★ I had a great experience with Woodside Credit! Things could not have been easier. I simply went online, filled out a quick application, and got a better deal than ANYONE was able to offer. Not only were their rates lower than everyone else, but their terms were much longer at the same time. The dealer insisted that I was mistaken in regards to the deal I was quoted, but surely enough Woodside came through exactly where they said they were going to be. They closed quickly, and were very helpful in getting my purchase taken care of. I have solid credit, and they beat my dealer by a full two percent, and did so while offering a term twice as long as the bank offered. I'm very happy with Woodside, and I look forward to using them in the future.Chau nguyenChau nguyen ★★★★★ This is my first time financing a classic Porsche with Woodside.

I talked to Art and finally purchased my first exotic. Everyone at Woodside is so friendly and is always willing to answer all your questions.

Yes of course it will be financed with Woodside!!!ifly woeifly woe ★★★★★ They made whole process a breeze! Jerry was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you.michael parizomichael parizo ★★★★★ I must say, I have bought alot of vehicles and have worked with dozens and dozens of banks and or credit unions and Woodside Credit has made the purchase of another vehicle very easy and quick. I highly recommend Woodside to anyone looking for vehicle financing whether for exotic or collector. Give them a call.Kevin ChanKevin Chan ★★★★☆ Recently used Woodside for the first time after some thorough research. Initial loan funding process was fine, but after that is where it got a bit rocky. Mentioned several times throughout this process I wanted them to register the vehicle as a collector car in my state. I even confirmed with the new person who was handling it. Time goes by and plates arrived at my address and they were not collector plates, reached out to Woodside and they said they would call the DOL, never heard back from them for over a week and went in to get the correct plates myself. Their mistake cost me more money and never did hear back from them. Disappointing and probably won’t use them again.1/12 Update: Changed my review from 2 to 4 stars, WC reached out and worked with me to make the situation right. Appreciated the effort and sufficient resolution.Joseph RamosJoseph Ramos ★★★★☆ A very neat and efficient loan process. Only negative is their insistence of rolling the T&L into the loan, and that they do the registration. Much more convenient for me to do the registration, and pay the T&L directly.js_loader
