I was able to get another newer car through CarHop! After that, I was able to get traditional financing with the help of Platnum Rewards and making my payments on time! I wouldn't have been able to do this without CarHop! Thank you CarHop!!

We are so very thankful to CarHop for putting us in one of their cars. We are now in a brand new 2014 VW Passat thanks to CarHop! Our credit through CarHop helped put us back on top! The employees at CarHop in Des Moines on SE 14th St are they greatist. They work with you and really show how much they care! I myself would advised anyone who has credit problems and have been turned down to please come to CarHop! You will be happy that you did. So thank you again Randy Meckler!
