Is it safe to do a credit application on a dealership’s website?

May 4th, 2017 by

If you’ve been thinking it’s time to get into a new vehicle, you may already have seen the  online credit application. Filling it out could save you time at the dealership, or at least let you know what your financial options are before selecting a car that’s out of your price range, but you’re likely wondering: Is it safe to fill out a credit application online?

Most people’s biggest concern is the information they give out. This is understandable, with identity theft being a worthwhile fear. Of all the required information in our credit application, you’re probably most concerned about your SSN, but it is a necessary piece of information for us to receive your credit score. We can assure you the information comes directly to our staff members, and we take precautions to keep all information on our servers private and secure. If in doubt, you can always just head on over to Mercedes-Benz of Smithtown and speak to a member of our staff in person.
